We Must Pray For Franklin Graham

We must pray for Franklin Graham, who is holding the banner high for spiritual truth and morality. He frequently speaks out on a variety of social and moral issues.

Recently, he was verbally attacked for commenting on the shooting and disrespect of police officers, and how it shows a lack of respect for authority. What is particularly troubling is that it came from some who are pastors and theologians who said Graham’s statement was “crude, insensitive, and paternalistic.”

They wrote a scathing letter, accusing him of sinning against the body of Christ. They should be praying for him instead of publicly demeaning him.  Franklin Graham is taking the lead in speaking out against the moral and spiritual decay that is bringing down this nation. This goes beyond senseless! It is a tragic indictment on how morally low America has become. These individuals actually believe that it is a sin to respect authority!

Franklin Graham is not one to respond to his critics in an ungodly manner. He has demonstrated much humility and grace. Matthew 5:11-12 comes to mind here. “Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of me. Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great…” Later in this same chapter it says to “love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.”

Praying is something that Franklin Graham will do. In 2016 he plans to travel to all 50 states to conduct prayer rallies. It is called the “Decision America Tour.” May God bless this great man of God!

What can you do to show support for people of God who are being spoken of falsely?

  1. I had not heard of Franklin Graham’s speaking out about the trend in police hating, nor the reaction of other clergy – thanks for sharing. The rebellion toward authority in this nation is very troubling. Lincoln said the US was conceived in liberty, but we were brought forth in rebellion as well. I see the agendas of political correctness and anti-authority as being purposeful, and a multi-pronged assignment by the enemy to make it increasingly difficult to apprehend criminals for fear of repercussions. As the nation increases in lawlessness, we find less officers willing to put their lives at risk. What will happen when violence is being perpetrated against you and there’s no one who will come to the rescue?

    We come against this assignment from Hell in the name of Jesus.

    • In the days before the return of Christ it says in Matthew 24:12, “lawlessness will increase and the love of many will grow cold…”

  2. I’m with you, Emily, at what point are policemen and women going to say, “Enough is enough. Am I able to make any difference anymore?”.
    Very concerning. John, thank you for reminding me of Matthew 5:11-12

  3. Thank you LORD for a BOLD, strong LEADER for YOU !
