Franklin Graham posts to his Facebook page:
Today President Trump officially designated houses of worship as “essential” and called on governors to allow them to open.
He said, “If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. In America, we need more prayer, not less.” There’s never been a more truthful statement.
Thank you President Donald J. Trump for defending America’s faith communities. No question, churches are essential to our individual lives and to the future of our country.
I believe pastors can take necessary precautions, following guidelines provided by the CDC, to open up safely, and I look forward to seeing that happen.
Continue to pray for the President to have protection and wisdom from God as he leads our nation through this time of pandemic–and let him know what this decision means to you.
