US Election: Evangelist Franklin Graham asks US Christians to “pray earnestly” before go to polls
American Christian evangelist Franklin Graham has recently suggested the US Christians to “pray earnestly,” before going to select their new president, saying that “God will open Americans’ eyes to the threats that are looming before us.”
“Well, the presidential debates are now over. The countdown to the election is on—November 8 is only 19 days away. My suggestion to Christians?,” Graham wrote on his Facebook wall.
“I pray God will open Americans’ eyes to the threats that are looming before us. Our unsecured border to the south. China’s military buildup in the South China sea. The redrawing of Europe’s borders and Europe now flooded with millions of refugees. ISIS now fully operational in at least 18 countries and growing,” he added.
He also added that America is in a far more dangerous and vulnerable position than we were eight years ago and we need China and Russia as allies not adversaries.
“Many problems we face cannot be solved by man alone, but we must have Divine help to find peaceful and long-lasting solutions,” his Facebook post read.
Graham hasn’t endorsed either Republican Candidate Donald Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for President.
Commenting on the presidential candidates, he earlier said: “Unfortunately, there are plenty of controversies surrounding both candidates. Donald Trump’s language and behavior have been troubling to many, and Hillary’s character as it relates to truthfulness has been a big problem for her.”
“With all of the political spin and deception, will you join me in praying that God will open the eyes of the American people to what is the truth and to who can most be trusted to lead this nation?”, he added.
According to the latest ABC News poll, Hillary Clinton is leading against her rival Donald Trump with a double-digit advantage after number of sexual allegations damaged Trump’s chances of winning the election.
