Franklin Graham, the CEO of the relief group Samaritan's Purse and of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is calling for a day of prayer and fasting for Sunday.
He recently held the "Washington Prayer March 2020" on the National Mall in Washington, which coincided with the "The Return - National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance," led by Jonathan Cahn, the Messianic rabbi known for his New York Times bestsellers, including "The Harbinger."
But more is needed, Graham wrote Friday on Facebook
"Our nation is at a critical juncture," Graham said. "We need to call out to God for His help, His intervention, and His mercy. It is only by His hand that America will survive and be able to thrive again. We have an election coming up with so much at stake-two vastly different directions for the future of this country. This not only affects us, but our children and our grandchildren."
Graham noted that when the survival of Israel under King Jehoshaphat was at stake, the king "called for a fast."
"The people sought the Lord and His help-and He delivered them," he said.
He cited Chronicles 20:3-4: "And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord."
Graham said that with Election Day coming Nov. 3, he is "urging followers of Jesus Christ to fast and to pray for our nation Sunday, October 25. Mark it on your calendars and prepare now. I hope individuals, families, and churches will join me in asking for the Lord's help and for His will to be done in this critical election. Will you?"
Before his National Mall event, Graham said America is facing trouble, and the "only hope for America is God." (WorldNetDaily) Read more.
