Graham - God Was Changing Nation's Direction With Trump's Victory

According to one of the ministers who spoke at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, the new president had heavenly help in his race for the White House.

The Rev. Franklin Graham declared the previous day on “Fox & Friends” that he believed during the campaign God was “getting ready to do something to change the direction” of the country. “I went to all 50 states this year,” the pastor recalled. “I saw God begin to do something as I went across the country. People came and confessed the sins of our nation out loud before God and the country. They confessed their sins. They didn’t come to hear me. They came to pray.”

Regarding Trump’s invitation to the inauguration, Graham said it was “a great privilege to be able to to stand with the president and to be able to stand before the nation and focus on God for a few minutes.” Newsmax reported that at the ceremony, son of the Rev. Billy Graham read scripture from the New Testament. He and five other religious leaders led the invocation and benediction to begin and end the event.

“This country has been divided for a long time," Graham said. "We do need to come together and we need to pray now more than ever. Our leadership needs prayer. Only God can fix this country.”

While the pastor acknowledged that the United States “was divided before (President Obama) came,” he added: “I think we have continued to be divided more during his presidency. It’s got to be reversed. The only way I know for it to be reversed is if we begin to pray and whether African-American churches, Anglo churches, pray for this nation. … We need God’s help.”
