The University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide football team visited the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their NCAA National Championship win, and during the visit, the team ended up praying with President Donald Trump.

The moving moment of ministry was caught on video.

What are the details of the visit?

During the visit, Trump lauded Alabama’s “win for the ages.”

The president watched the January game from a private box at the stadium.

Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban gushed over the White House visit, saying, “You know, not many people get invited to the White House, so not many people get invited to see the president and meet the president.”

“So this is a special day for our team,” he explained. “A team that is being honored here because of their achievements in terms of winning the college football national championship, which makes me very proud.”

After the visit, Trump tweeted about hosting the team, writing, “Today, it was my great honor to welcome the 2017 NCAA Football National Champion, Alabama Crimson Tide – to the White House. Congratulations! #RollTide.”

And the prayer?

Players gathered around Trump during the visit when punter JK Scott reportedly asked the president if he could pray for him and the administration.

WBRC-TV’s  Christina Chambers caught the moment on video and shared it on Twitter.

She captioned the video, “What a cool moment! .@AlabamaFTBL JK Scott asked @POTUS if he could pray for him and his staff. Video below shows President Trump and Bama players praying after the Tide’s @WhiteHouse visit!”
