The artists, also including Tauren Wells and Danny Gokey, were invited specifically to learn about the faith-based projects that the Trump Administration is currently working on. 

Following the meeting, Kari Jobe took to social media to talk about the special experience. She shared some profound thoughts and urged her followers to pray for our government. 

She wrote, "Cody and I were honored to be invited. As I stepped foot into the White House, I had to just take a moment and take it all in. I was thinking through how many great men and women have served and led in that house,  have come to visit that house, have changed history inside that house.  The thing that moved me the most though was the peace I felt. It wasn't chaotic, it wasn't heavy...it was peaceful. It's a home. I thought that was special."

She continued, "In the faith briefing we heard from a few government leaders about incredible things that are going on behind the scenes that media and news never talk about. Projects to rescue victims of human trafficking, rehabilitate former inmates, take care of foster children, help neighborhoods and communities that are falling apart, help rebuild cities after tragedy...just to name a few."

Then, the singer opened up about the Kingdom of God as it pertains to politics. 

She wrote, "I sat there with tears in my eyes because these beautiful people get up daily and go to work in a governmental facility and think about people; you and me. They pray and seek God for wisdom for people. It all seemed beyond politics- it was Kingdom. I realized there are some Kingdom minded people who work in the White House and that was extremely encouraging. I don't engage in political jargon & conversations- but I do engage when the Holy Spirit puts a burden to pray or do whatever He has spoken and obey Him. I was moved and reminded to pray every day for our leaders and government."

Jobe concluded, "We won't always see everything the same,  or even agree with everything people say or do...but we are all alive on the earth for such a time as this and what if God is calling new Esthers to rise up? I'm inspired to stay leaning into the Holy Spirit for our nation and be brave to do whatever He asks, cause it could change history. Stewardship of a calling is important, and this was one of those important days for me."
