Evangelical leader Franklin Graham recently proposed a “special day of prayer” for our president and it didn’t turn out well for him, considering most everybody just laughed in his face.
Evidently, the backlash he’s been receiving over his prayer day made the preacher big mad, as he is now warning that impeachment proceedings against president Trump could instigate a civil war in the US.
Graham recently sat down with the Christian Post and explained why he’s calling for a “special day of prayer” which is scheduled for tomorrow.
“I am not asking people to endorse him. That is not that point of this prayer,” Graham explained. “This is not an election year. So I don’t see how it could be political. He is the president. People have voted for him. He is in office and he is carrying out the duties of the presidency. He needs our prayers.”
I want to remind everyone of the importance of praying for @POTUS @realDonaldTrump this Sun., June 2. We need to pray for him as he carries out his duties, that God will give him wisdom in every decision he makes & protect him from his enemies who would like to see him fall. 1/3

He also went on to admit that the recent happenings around the president, such as Mueller’s first public statement and Trump’s alleged collusion played a big part in his decision.
“I think what is going on in Washington has something to do with my call to prayer,” Graham stated. “It has bothered me and it has been a burden on my heart because this president is being attacked more than any president in modern history; attacked by the press more than Abraham Lincoln.”
Graham feels that the media and Donald’s competition are “doing everything they can to destroy him.”
What we need to remember is that he is the president. That doesn’t mean that he is a perfect person. He is flawed like all of us. He has made plenty of mistakes but he is the leader of this nation. We have got huge problems in front of us.”
Graham believes that Trump is drowning in “false accusations” that are meant to purposely hurt our country and went on to add that Donald “probably will go down as one of the great presidents of our country.”
It was then that the evangelist warned of dire consequences in our country if the Democrats were to proceed with the impeachment process.
“If the president was brought down for whatever reason, it could lead to a civil war. There are millions of people out there that voted for President Trump that are behind him that are angry and they are mad. We are just living in a very dangerous territory and we need God’s help.”
We may need some prayer, but it’s a prayer that God finally gets the asshole out of office before he destroys us all.
