FRANKLIN GRAHAM FB POST
Does prayer work? You betcha. The Bible tells us that “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" (James 5:16). Jesus also tells us to “keep asking” and gives us an example in a parable in Luke chapter 18 of a widow who repeatedly went to a judge asking for justice, and finally the judge responded because of her persistence. Our pleas and our petitions do make a difference. I have gone to all 50 states this year, and tens of thousands people have joined me in their capitals to pray for the future of this nation. It is imperative that we continue to pray. As we approach November 8—and beyond—we need to “cry out to God day and night” (Luke 18:7).
The evening of November 7, on my father Billy Graham's 98th birthday and just before Election Day, will you join me and others across the country in praying? I will be LIVE right here on Facebook at 9:00 PM ET, so don’t miss it. Let’s bow together and again ask for God’s help. We need Him. Will you be there?
I'm a 30 veteran and been campaigning online for Trump, for reasons that are self evident to any child of God. Nevertheless I highly recommend that at the end of your request prayer you all leave room for the Lord, that His will be done. Just as Jesus Christ left room after His request to the Father ( "But not my will, but your will be done" ). And then pray for peace and strength to accept the results as God's larger will, because we cannot see the whole picture. Perhaps God want's our attention for what's coming next, maybe the rapture. The key is to trust the Lord even in the storm so that on that day when he call's us out of this boat, we will be able to still walk on the water when it comes to faith, truth, and justice.
