Franklin Graham warns impeachment could spark civil war; calls on Christians to pray for Trump tomorrow

Evangelist Franklin Graham, 66, son of the late Billy Graham, is calling on Christians worldwide to pray for President Trump tomorrow,  a “special day of prayer”. Graham specifically asks pastors across America to lead their congregations in prayer for the president during Sunday services, Sunday school, and other gatherings.

More than 300 Christian leaders have given Graham their support. But other Christian leaders, such as Alan Cross, criticize Graham for politicizing and using prayer to engender partian support for Trump.

In a phone interview with Christian Post, Graham explains: “I am not asking people to endorse him [Trump]. That is not that point of this prayer. This is not an election year. So I don’t see how it could be political. He is the president. People have voted for him. He is in office and he is carrying out the duties of the presidency. He needs our prayers.”

Referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s insinuating comment on Wednesday, May 29, that charging Donald Trump was “not an option that we could consider” due to Justice Department policy that a president can’t be charged with a federal crime while in office, Graham said:

“I think what is going on in Washington has something to do with [my call to prayer]. It has bothered me and it has been a burden on my heart because this president is being attacked more than any president in modern history; attacked by the press more than Abraham Lincoln.

So he is the president of the United States. You had two years of investigation that came up with nothing. Now the media and his opponents in Washington are doing everything they can to destroy him. What we need to remember is that he is the president. That doesn’t mean that he is a perfect person. He is flawed like all of us. He has made plenty of mistakes but he is the leader of this nation. We have got huge problems in front of us.

We have trade problems with Canada and with Mexico and China. We have the Iranian situation right now. Venezuela is in meltdown mode. There is so much that needs to be done. We still have North Korea that still hasn’t been solved. The president, for him to be distracted with false accusations, with people doing all they can to destroy him, it hurts this country. It hurts all of us.

My prayer is not an endorsement of the president. I am not asking people to [issue] an endorsement. It’s to just call on God to give him wisdom because if he makes a good decision, it is good for all of us. If he makes a bad decision, it is bad for all of us. Whether we are Republican or Democrats or independents, this is just asking God to guide him and direct him as he makes decisions everyday that impacts our lives….

When I say protect him, protect him from his enemies. Because these enemies — it is not just the president, but it is tearing down the office of the presidency. This will hurt our country for many, many years if this is allowed to happen.

I am not talking about people who may disagree with certain policies. I am talking about those who are trying to destroy this presidency and destroy him. Those are the enemies. It is not people that disagree. I don’t agree with everything that he says or does. But he is still the president of the United States. The people voted for him and he won it fair and square and his enemies have not accepted that.

The election hadn’t been over 12 hours and they were making accusations about Russian interference and collusion with Russia. All that was nothing but a lie. For the last two years, the media has gone after our president day-in and day-out with collusion, cover-up, collusion, collusion, cover-up. None of that is there.

Mueller could not find any of that and he had an army of attorneys. They were sifting tens of thousands of emails, subpoenaing witnesses, taping all of these depositions. They couldn’t find one shred of evidence that there was collusion.

So since the Mueller report has come out, they are talking about impeachment. It is just crazy. It is destroying our country. Enough is enough….

Our nation is at a crossroads, at a dangerous precipice. This precipice is the failure of our democratic system. It is just a handful of people that are able to control the media and are able to dictate what comes across the media into a person’s home night after night, day after day. If the president was brought down for whatever reason, it could lead to a civil war. There are millions of people out there that voted for President Trump that are behind him that are angry and they are mad. We are just living a very dangerous territory and we need God’s help.

Our country is in a mess. We’re in political turmoil. Our government cannot be fixed without the hand of God. We are just too broken, too fractured, too segmented. The only way our country can make it is with God intervening and beginning to change the hearts of people. The only hope for this country is the Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for our sins with His life when He shed his blood on the cross. God raised Him to life.

He can come into every heart that is willing to trust Him. Every time a person yields their life to Christ, that heart is changed. America needs a heart transplant. America needs a new heart. We have become vicious. We have become angry. We have become bitter. It is just wrong. The only hope this country has got, we need to pray. We need to pray for our president.”

In an earlier interview, Graham called the attacks against President Trump “demonic.”

Graham is a political independent because, in his words, “in recent years, I have been very discouraged with the leadership in both parties.”

Reverend Graham is a good man. He’s more outspoken than his father. He’s absolutely right about tearing this country apart; that is what the Demonrats want. If they can’t be in charge, they want to destroy it. The same “pastors” that balk at praying for President Trump are likely the ones that told us to pray for Obama. We are told in the Bible to pray for those who are in positions of authority. May God bless President Trump and Reverend Graham.?

I’ve been saying since the outset that they’re gonna impeach him. It won’t be ratified, but they’ll do it anyway. By Mueller’s own words (as if I care) he’s committed no crime. So, what’s the impeachment based upon? We’ll see what the response is. They have all the TV losers on their side. Anyone who can reason will see what this is about. Of course we don’t have a lot of those left. What dazzles me is that you can ask them point blank if they are troubled by disenfranchising approximately half of the voters and it doesn’t bother them… Read more »

That foolish “tough guy”/useless idiot Jeffery Wright – not Jeff mind you, but Jeffery – pretty much spelled out the position of the left the other day. This has nothing to do with legal or constitutional or moral or spiritual issues, it’s about power, nothing more. You can’t compromise with someone who is in a psychotic frenzy of power lust. When they threaten you, you respond as you would with a mad dog. And it will probably come to that

Yes, you’re absolutely right. I isn’t going away due to a ballot and they are not going to have an epiphany due to their kindness and love of The Lord. They are every bit as rabid as the Bolsheviks or the Maoists. All of those concepts we grew up with an hold dear do not apply to this crop. They would gladly throw all that away to be ruled by The State and encouraged to whatever debauchery floats their boat. Appeals to “human nature” and “natural law” don’t even work with Commies. We’re looking at soulless, graceless, hedonistic nihilists. I… Read more »

It is very significant that a man of Franklin Graham’s stature made this statement. It is a political statement although not a partisan one. He will of course be accused of that, and of hate speech and a litany of other sins. We expect that from the MSM and the SJW “religious leaders”. I will be praying for President Trump tomorrow. Prayer is demonstrably effective especially when many people pray in unison for God’s will to be done. I believe that the Trump presidency is a manifestation of His will. President Trump is far, far from perfect but he is… Read more »

My prayers tend to be first thanks, and then that things will be as the Lord intends them to be. If it is His intention that Trump is impeached, who am I to say it isn’t part of His plan? I ask for wisdom and the strength to act on it. Politically they don’t have the numbers. I don’t like mixing religion and politics. I have had an uneasy feeling (more than usual) since this all began. I don’t like to be manipulated or chumped. Some reactions seem pretty obvious and why they aren’t acted upon makes me suspicious. I… Read more »

Yes, His will, not ours. Impeachment will go nowhere and will backfire on the Demonoids. It’s just theater, as long as it’s “on the table” they can keep Trumps’ ‘criminality” front and center. Which is all they talk about anyway and all they have talked about for two years. No it won’t trigger a civil war. I think assassination would though. We’re in a civil war anyway, there are irreconcilable differences between the sane and the demon-haunted. Abortion is just one issue; once infanticide was unthinkable, an abomination. Now it’s a fundamental right. Obviously no middle ground. And scores of… Read more »

Yeah, they’re rubbing our noses in the investigation. Frankly, I’m not convinced that’s on the up and up either. It certainly isn’t how I’D run an investigation. I really don’t want to hear about what he’s going to do. I would rather here about what he DID. We still have thousand (actually hundreds of thousands) of new Demonrat voters boiling across the border daily. Where’s the Army? We have military generals who refuse to cooperate. That’s unheard of. That’s treason. We have criminal referrals that are not being acted upon. Why? One of them is Strzok. So, for me the… Read more »

I was no Billy Graham fan (although I did not detest the man) and I don’t know much about his son, Franklin. But Pastor Graham is absolutely right on this one, and everything he says is correct and in the right context: America is in turmoil, and she is in danger, and this is due, in large part, to evil men being at the levers of media and legal power. I will pray for President Trump, but I have to note again his failure to take decisive action re.: internet censorship by the big platforms. I have said before that… Read more »

Well, NBC edited out Alex Trebek’s thanks for prayers, surprised the MSM is even allowing him to say anything at all: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/may/30/alex-trebeks-thanks-for-prayers-in-pancreatic-canc/

I didn’t know that Alex, the smartest man in the world, had cancer. I’m glad to hear that he’s recovering. There are many, many well-documented cases of miraculous healing through prayer. The Odor/MSM don’t want anyone to know that. Bastards

My “Uncle” was healed from lung cancer completely by prayers to the Lord, he said he was asleep in bed when a light struck him, he said it was the most wonderful feeling he ever had, and thought that if he was dying his wife would understand, the next day they went to the doctor, she re-did the xray to see how much the spots in his lungs had progressed, and they were GONE. Miracles do happen, and they are from God.

That we are treading in trouble waters, no doubt but I don’t see an impending civil war for now, however we must not become complacent because the left doesn’t rest in their take over. Impeach! So what? If it manages to get off the floor it won’t go too far, and I can see Nasty Nancy run out of Congress and Latrine Waters following right behind. Their party is so divided within the ranks they are fighting for control. It takes more than what’s actually happening to warrant a civil war.

Franklin need not explain himself nor apologize; the Left will make of it whatever they will, as they do about everything.

I’m sure this is just “coincidental”. Funny how these kiddie traffickers and associates of Russian gangsters seem to flock to the Obongo/Clinton crowd.

He has that sort of face that CNN favors in its propagandists.
