Franklin Graham will hold special Facebook Live prayer events before the start of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions later this month. During each online event, he will speak to viewers, then pray for America’s presidential candidates, the convention, the upcoming elections and our nation.
“Our country is in trouble, and I don’t have a whole lot of faith in the political parties,” Franklin Graham said in a video posted on his Facebook page Monday.
He also referenced the tragic events of the past week: “Shootings, riots and protests now claim the headlines about America, and that’s heartbreaking,” he said. “We are in desperate need of Divine intervention. We need healing. Prayer is what can make a difference in America.”
The first live event will take place July 18 at noon EDT ahead of the RNC. Updates on this event as well as the start time for the DNC live prayer will post to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page.
“Be a part of this,” Franklin Graham said. “Wherever you are that day, I hope you will set your reminder to join us via your phone or your laptop. The Bible says that the prayers of one righteous person avails much (James 5:16). So if there are thousands of us calling out to God on behalf of our nation, can you imagine what He might do?”
