Evangelist Franklin Graham is calling on Christians to participate in a day of fasting and prayer for our nation today.
Graham, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and of Samaritan's Purse, an international Christian relief organization, believes the church needs to call upon the name of God and ask for Him to move in this country. He stressed that our nation is facing multiple crises - from a pandemic to a turbulent presidential election, and widespread racial unrest.
"I am urging followers of Jesus Christ to fast and to pray for our nation next SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25. Mark it on your calendars and prepare now. I hope individuals, families, and churches will join me in asking for the Lord's help and for His will to be done in this critical election. Will you?" Graham wrote on Facebook.
"We need to call out to God for His help, His intervention, and His mercy. It is only by His hand that America will survive and be able to thrive again. We have an election coming up with so much at stake - two vastly different directions for the future of this country. This not only affects us but our children and our grandchildren," he added.
Graham led a Prayer March last month in Washington, D.C. where thousands of prayer warriors showed up to bless our nation.
"Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand before the throne of grace and make our petitions known directly to God," Graham said.
Several worship events have taken place across the country at various venues this year, all for the same purpose: to bring America back to its first love and repent before a holy God.
