Reader's View: Those who didn't vote for Trump deserves prayers, too

I could not have disagreed more with the Jan. 24 letter, "God's people prayed and voted for Trump's win."
First off, I agree all people should read the entire Bible. But I cannot explain why we should start with the New Testament. Why not start at the beginning?
I agree we should pray to God to show us how to live. But I beg to differ that we should, as the letter stated, "Pray for Christians who are being persecuted." I think we should pray for all who are being persecuted. That would include Jews, Muslims, and yes, even atheists, too.
The letter stated that God has given our nation a second chance despite our many sins. It said the second chance was because Christians prayed and voted and we have a Donald Trump presidency. How can anyone be so sure?
I agreed with the letter that there are many false prophets. The Bible tells us in Thessalonians, "Let no man deceive you by any means." The letter could have gone a little further. Thessalonians also reads, "For that day shall not come, except there be a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the Son of Perdition." And, "Who opposes and exalteth himself above all that is called God." I believe that is more accurate of our new President. He seems to opposeth anything that makes him look like less than the greatest; his ego is beyond belief.
We are told to be humble at all times and not boastful. Does this sound like Trump?
Again, I agree Americans should read the Bible. May they find enlightenment. Pray that God will shine a light in their hearts so they'll love all of their neighbors, not just those, as suggested in the letter, Christians who voted for Trump. The letter was divisional at best.
