A YouTube video shows Sarah Palin being blessed in her church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from witchcraft as she prepared to seek higher office.
The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in Wasilla Assembly of God with her head bowed as he asks God "in the name of Jesus" to "save her from Satan" and "use her to turn this nation."
The date of the sermon listed on the church Web site is October 16th, 2005. Palin announced her gubernatorial bid two days later and was elected the next year. The Republican vice presidential nominee was baptized at the church, but stopped attending regularly in 2002.
