Together with Jim Garlow and Eric Metaxas, Bramnick is also affiliated with the World Prayer Network, an outgrowth of a prayer movement initiated in 2020 to frequently gather and pray for God to intervene and overturn the 2020 US election results – in December 2020, for instance, Bramnick thanked God in advance for giving Trump victory, declaring that “Father, President Trump won in the natural, and Father, we decree that he will be seated as the president for another four years, Father. We bring that down on the Earth realm. We decree it” (the reference of ‘we’ is somewhat unclear; it seems that Bramnick sometimes loses track of the distinction between himself and God). Later the same month, he prophesied that the electors would come to their senses on December 14 when they voted to certify the results: “We decree and declare that the hammer of God would come to expose what Satan’s dominion is trying to take over,” said Bramnick: “Satan’s hammer is no match for the Maccabee of God, for the hammer of God. And I decree by December 14, we will be victorious exposing the fraud and that President Trump will be declared our president for another four more years.” Fortunately for Bramnick, his followers tend to bracket their Biblical literalism when it comes to dealing with false prophets. It is worth pointing out, however, that according to Bramnick, Trump is anointed by God – “our Cyrus for this hour” – both for spiritual and political purposes, and he is deeply grateful to God for giving “us a man after your heart” and for equipping Trump “supernatural wisdom” for the protection of the American people (especially, apparently, when it comes to immigration policy).
Currently, their biweekly prayer calls, featuring guests like Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn, are focused on asking God to thwart President Biden’s plans; Bramnick himself has called on God to “shake the Senate” to prevent Democrats from enacting their agenda – said agenda might superficially look like it concerns infrastructure or economy or healthcare, but they don’t fool Bramnick: it is all a series of attempts at “scheming and plotting against the Lord and his anointed one.” The media, too, according to Bramnick: the media is run by demons that seek to “incite anger, fear, despair” – unlike himself, apparently –“under the prince of the power of the air, Leviathan, twisting spirits.”
Together with Harry Jackson, Bramnick also arranged a 2018 election-themed prayer event “Rise Up 2018” at which they blessed and deputized various Trump officials on behalf of Christ so that they could help Trump’s fight against the forces of darkness in the spiritual battle against demonic liberal forces that the US is currently embroiled in. Apparently Bramnick and Jackson had the authority to deputize on behalf of God: “God has given us authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the devil.” Jackson, meanwhile, called the event ‘bipartisan’, which is sort of illustrative.
Diagnosis: Completely deluded and completely insane – yet Bramnick wields a scary amount of power and influence, also, apparently, outside the US. You should, unfortunately, be afraid.
