In a recent FB Live broadcast from Franklin Graham that led prayer before the Republican National Convention, It was very clear that a nationwide return to God is America’s only hope for the future. “This nation — it needs a spiritual healing from Almighty God,” Graham said before praying. “Our country — I don’t have to tell you — is in trouble… And the only hope for this country is God. It’s not the politicians. It’s God.”

According to reports, Graham is hosting prayer events before both parties’ conventions. Graham went on to say “God uses politicians, and we pray for the politicians that they’ll listen to God’s voice and that they’ll hear His voice,” he continued. “And how important it is today that the politicians listen to God.” Franklin Graham then went on to emphasize how America has been running away from God stating:

“The secularists, the progressives, many of these people, most of them are people that would be atheistic, and we have taken God out of our country,” he said. “We have taken Him out of our nation; we have taken Him out of our government.” “We have taken Him out of the education system, and our country is beginning to implode,” he continued. “We’re on the precipice of anarchy.”
