University of Alabama football player J.K. Scott made national news when he was filmed Tuesday leading a prayer for President Trump on the White House lawn.

"The Lord laid on my heart to pray for him," the Crimson Tide football player said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

Scott, who is a follower of Jesus Christ, said he prayed that the Lord would give the president peace.

"I walked up to him and shook his hand and asked, 'Mr Trump, would you let me pray for you?' He looked at me and said, 'Yeah, Come on,'" Scott told Starnes.

And that's exactly what happened - immediately after a ceremony honoring the national championship football team.

"As soon as President Trump gave us permission, we all laid hands on him and we gathered around and we all started praying," he said.
