Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and son of the great evangelist Billy Graham, issued a nationwide call on Monday to pray for President Donald J. Trump as he is facing potential arrest at the hands of the Manhattan district attorney’s office this week.

“We need to pray for our country and where it is headed,” Graham wrote on Facebook. “The left in Washington and across the country just can’t get their fill of attacking Donald Trump. They are so paranoid of him. The onslaught against him is continual.”

He continued, “There’s no question, the media and the left manipulated the last election, and they are scared to death of Donald Trump’s possible return. So, night after night, the media runs negative stories about former President Trump. Now they’re talking about the possibility of arresting him in the hopes that this would prevent him from running for president again—this would be a huge mistake. The charges against him are definitely politically motivated.”

According to the Washington Examiner, Franklin declined to endorse President Trump for the 2024 presidential race at this point, opting instead to remain neutral. However, Graham has long been a vocal supporter of Trump’s policies.

Per the outlet, Franklin remarked that he would “stay out of it until after the primaries have finished.”

As reported by RSBN, tensions have been running high since Trump confirmed that he could be arrested this week on charges stemming back to 2016, surrounding “hush money” paid to Stormy Daniels.

Franklin concluded, “I would like to ask Christians across this country to pray specifically for former President Donald J. Trump, that God’s hand would be upon him, protect him, and direct him in every step he takes—and that God’s will be done. We need to work together to strengthen this nation—not divide and destroy it.”
