The LDS Church is congratulating Republican Donald Trump on his stunning victory — a candidate the Utah-based faith earlier condemned — and urging all Americans to pray for the “president-elect, for his new administration and for elected leaders across the nation and the world.”

In a news release Wednesday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said that imploring the heavens to help public officeholders is a “long tradition” for Mormons.

“The men and women who lead our nations and communities need our prayers,” the release said, “as they govern in these difficult and turbulent times.”
