Renowned evangelist Franklin Graham on Friday, Dec. 25, asked Christians to pray for the country and its commander in chief, President Donald Trump.
“I would like to ask you to especially pray for our nation & our president this weekend,” Graham wrote in a tweet. “Pray that God’s hand would be on President Donald Trump & that He would give him wisdom in the coming days, & pray that God would spare our nation from the evil that is before us.”

Graham recently took to Facebook to express his heartfelt gratitude to God for a president who did so many great things for Americans in his first term.
“I am grateful—grateful to God that for the last four years He gave us a president who protected our religious liberties; grateful for a president who defended the lives of the unborn, standing publicly against abortion and the bloody smear it has made on our nation; grateful for a president who nominated conservative judges to the Supreme Court and to our federal courts,” Graham said.
Graham went on to praise President Trump’s accomplishments in building “the strongest economy in 70 years,” his support of the military, the police, and his steadiness to confront the corruption in Washington.
On Saturday, Graham declared that he tends to believe President Trump’s assertion that the 2020 election was rigged, given that the president has been right on various issues about the mistreatment he’s been through during the last four years.
“The President has been maligned, falsely accused, and attacked on every front since before the election in 2016. When President Trump says that this election has been rigged or stolen, I tend to believe him. He has a track record of being right,” Graham wrote on his Facebook page.
The son of the late prominent evangelist Billy Graham explained the reasons why he believes President Trump.
Graham said President Trump’s accusations of the government spying on him in 2016 were proven true despite denials and attacks from the media and the Obama administration.
President Trump was under investigation for Russian collusion for two years, the president said there was no collusion while the media was circulating different narratives, but an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller debunked the media’s accusations.
Then, Democrats launched an impeachment attempt that failed against President Trump over a phone call.
“Pray for President Trump, pray for Joe Biden, and pray for our nation—that we will get through this, and for God’s will be done,” he concluded.
