Rev. Graham: God Intervened Nov. 8 to Stop 'Atheistic, Progressive Agenda' in America

Commenting on Tuesday's presidential election, Reverend Franklin Graham said the media and political pundits do not understand what happened because they do not understand the "God-factor," the power of prayer, and added that "God intervened" on Nov. 8 "to stop the godless, atheistic, progressive agenda from taking control of our country."

In a Nov. 10 post on Facebook, Rev. Graham wrote, "Did God show up? In watching the news after the election, the secular media keep asking 'How did this happen?' 'What went wrong?' 'How did we miss this?' Some are in shock. Political pundits are stunned. Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them understand the God-factor."

"Hundreds of thousands of Christians from across the United States have been praying," said Rev. Graham. "This year they came out to every state capitol to pray for this election and for the future of America."

"Prayer groups were started," he said. "Families prayed. Churches prayed. Then Christians went to the polls, and God showed up."

"While the media scratches their heads and tries to understand how this happened, I believe that God’s hand intervened Tuesday night to stop the godless, atheistic progressive agenda from taking control of our country," said Rev. Graham, the son of world-renowned pastor Billy Graham. 

"President-elect Donald J. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are going to need a lot of help and they will continue to need a lot of prayer," he said.  "I pray that President-elect Trump will surround himself with godly men and women to help advise and counsel him as he leads the nation."

"My prayer is that God will bless America again!" said the reverend.

Franklin Graham, 64, runs the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international Christian relief group Samaritan's Purse. Graham is married and has five children. He frequently preaches in the United States and abroad, and comments on current affairs on television, radio and in print.
