Prominent evangelist Franklin Graham is asking the American people to pray for President Donald Trump as the impeachment inquiry gains traction. As Democrats continue their intense efforts to stop the president at all costs, the American people must fight back before it is too late.
“This is a sad day for America. Our politics in this country has hit a new low. Nancy Pelosi and her followers in Congress have weaponized the impeachment process,” Graham shared in a powerful statement.
After years of unrelenting fake news of the Russia collusion hoax, the Democrats have shifted their sights on a new agenda to defraud our nation from success. Our president did nothing but ask a country to investigate corruption. Any moderately sane person would agree that rooting out corruption is a good and honorable thing.
Instead of Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and their corrupt Congressional following doing the jobs they were elected to do, they have fixated their efforts on one thing. Destroying President Trump is at the forefront of their goal.
This past week, several pastors and leaders met with President Trump and prayed with him amidst the House Democrat’s efforts towards impeachment. Twenty-five leaders attended, and the meeting lasted an hour-long in the White House. They greeted the president with a standing ovation in the Roosevelt Room.
Pastor Jack Graham was in attendance and assured the president that Christians across the country not only stood by him but were offering unwavering support during this time. He also said that Trump always welcomes and appreciates prayer. The chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition applauded Trump for being the most focused and in command president he has ever seen.
The president of Congress of Christian Leaders made a good point in that evangelicals do not just see this unfair impeachment craze to be just an attack on Donald Trump. This is an attack on Christian values and an impeachment of the American peoples’ voices. It is not just a coup against the Republican Party or the president himself. Ultimately, it boils down to a personal attack against you and me as Americans and as Christians.
Trump secured over 80 percent of the evangelical voters in 2016. Those high numbers are projected to stay high and even increase. Those who were skeptical of Trump in the beginning stages of his election now see how he has governed and evangelical support has remained steady.
Vice President Mike Pence has adamantly stood for his Christian faith and has been stigmatized by the media for this. He has made known that it is his faith that shapes how he leads and is the center of his decision making. Many on the Left have taken offense to this and have labeled the vice president as a discriminator against the LGBTQ community. His unyielding Christian faith has been a backbone in the Trump Administration journey thus far.
Impeachment was not the only focus. The Trump Administrations’ many accomplishments were also a forefront talking point. Centering around thankfulness, the group discussed the nomination of conservative federal judges, criminal justice reform, pro-life initiatives, and the most recent death of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi.
As Christians and Americans, we have the responsibility to vote and do our parts to stand in what we know is right. While it feels at times that voting is not worth it at this point, the depravity of our current political and social system can make it seem as if all hope is lost.
Christians have been given this earth as a stewardship under God. In the United States, we, as citizens, have been granted the right and privilege to elect our local and national leaders. We will be held accountable for our actions, which I believe extends to our efforts in voting, praying, and honoring those in authority.
The Left is striving to stigmatize Christians and has recently been increasing persecution against American Christians and their beliefs. Being complacent in this can ultimately lead to a decrease in human dignity and a barrier to advancing the Gospel. Christians are called to a purpose, and that purpose includes doing our part to reign according to the instruction of the Bible. The incivility and pure dishonesty that exists in our current political system is at odds with religious liberty and must be brought to attention.
Two main issues Christians tend to protect and stand for are pro-life viewpoints and religious liberties. Our president has remained firm on standing protecting religious freedoms and actively fighting for the unborn. He has acted to stop the support for tax-payer funded abortions and has elected judges to uphold the reasons we voted him in. President Trump has openly and unapologetically stated that unborn children are made in the image and likeness of God and are deserving of government protection.
For those who are Christians, we know that the battles we face are not just against people in themselves. Ephesians 6:12 reads, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
While we must do the physical acts of voting, there is also a spiritual side of this fight that cannot be ignored. Prayer for our leaders, prayer for our president, and prayer for our country is a real and vital part of this.
The spiritual warfare that is occurring may not be physically tangible, but it is just as real. As Christians, we are given authority. In the book of Romans, we are told that the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is alive in us. There is a spiritual battle occurring through this impeachment process, and we have the power and ability to do our part to combat it.
We voted President Trump into office. The American people have made their voices heard, and our intentions are clear. We, as Christians, will stand by the president and fight alongside him. We will unify as one people and lift President Donald Trump in prayer.
“Pray for President Trump today, for God to give him wisdom, protection, and guide each and every step he takes,” Graham stated.
