Reverend Franklin Graham is a vocal supporter of President Trump’s religious freedom and America First agenda.
Just this past week, Rev. Franklin Graham took to social media to call for a ‘special day of prayer’ for our President. Rev. Graham claims this is necessary in light of the ‘demonic attacks’ against President Trump.
Graham and many other prominent religious leaders have agreed to dedicate June 2nd, a Sunday, to pray for President Trump, and specifically that ‘God would protect, strengthen, embolden, and direct him.’
Count me in! Sign me up!
Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2,…
According to Fox News:
Graham, who called Trump “the most Christian-friendly president in my lifetime,” said this isn’t an endorsement of Trump but rather simply a day set aside for prayer.
“I think of Pastor Brunson and Turkey; he’d still be in that prison if it hadn’t been for Donald Trump. And he has a desire to help the church, to help Christians…Is he a perfect person? Absolutely not. Is he the best example of the Christian faith? No way,” Graham said. “But there’s something in his heart where God has placed him there to defend the Christian faith and religious liberty. And so I appreciate that about him, and we need to try to lift him up in prayer and support him where we can.”
Perkins, who is also joining Graham for the day and said churches in the “Watchmen” network are as well, said the Bible calls for Christians to pray for their leaders.
“It doesn’t matter if they’re Republican or Democrat,” Perkins said. “I prayed for our previous president. I didn’t agree with his policies, but I did pray for him… I believe this can happen—where leaders are led by God to do the right thing because people are praying for them.”
Religious leaders who have agreed to take part in the day of prayer include John Hagee, pastor of Cornerstone Church and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, the largest pro-Israel organization in America; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas; Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Dr. Alveda King; “Duck Dynasty” stars Phil and Al Robertson; Rev. Sam Rodriguez, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Dr. Darrell Scott, CEO of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump; and Dr. James and Shirley Dobson, who lead “Family Talk.”
Many took to Twitter to share this news:

Where do you stand?
According to Rev. Graham, the left is trying to destroy our president in what is being called a ‘digital coup.’
I agree with the Reverend, who is also CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, that ‘if Trump succeeds, we all succeed.’ If the tide comes up, all the boats float.
