Television evangelist Franklin Graham is calling on Christians across the country to “pray for God to intervene” in strengthening President Donald Trump against his enemies. In a statement posted to Facebook on Sunday, Graham – son of the well-known late evangelist Billy Graham—announced plans to hold a “special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump” on Sunday.
“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. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God,” Graham said. “This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the president.”
Never once did they ask you to pray for the president who was under attack from racist bigots — including the current president — for 8 years.
But now they ask you to pray for a man who admittedly grabs married women by the vagina.
Such Christians. https://t.co/qrHQSixhPE

Franklin Graham announced June 2 as National Day of Prayer for Donald Trump. My birthday is June 3, so could I ask you all to pray on June 2 for Trump’s impeachment, resignation and incarceration as my birthday present? Not asking too much, am I?
