(Worthy News) - Franklin Graham is encouraging American Christians to set aside a whole day on June 2nd to pray for President Trump.
The eldest son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham and president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse is joined in his call to arms by over 250 other major names in American Christianity, including Mike Bickle, Kenneth Copeland, James Dobson, Jerry Falwell Jr., John Hagee, and Michael W. Smith, who have all lent their signatures to the endeavor.
“President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has,” Graham said in his full Facebook statement, which concludes with a quote from Ephesians 6:12.
Graham is currently making his way through seven states in the northeast as part of his Decision American Northeast Tour, a series of free “one-night prayer and evangelism events” birthed from his original Decision America tour during the Presidential election in 2016, and following on the heels of rallies since in the pacific Northwest, Tennesse, California, and Texas that have garnered crowds of over 70,000 people.
“The most critical thing you can do is pray, pray, pray. The intercession of God’s people is crucial if we are to see a return to the Biblical faith of our fathers, the faith that has guided and sustained our country for so long,” Graham said on the 700 Club in 2018.
