As impeachment proceedings roll along, evangelist Franklin Graham is desperately asking the public to pray for Donald Trump.
Not for the truth to come out, mind you. Just for Trump.
He made the remarks after the House voted for formalize impeachment proceedings.
This is a sad day for America. Our politics in this country has hit a new low. @SpeakerPelosi and her followers in Congress have weaponized the impeachment process. This is just another attempt to tarnish and embarrass @POTUS @realDonaldTrump before the next election. 1/2

Pray for President @realDonaldTrump today, for God to give him wisdom, protection, & that God would guide each & every step he takes. 2/2— Franklin Graham (@Franklin_Graham) October 31, 2019
Democrats aren’t weaponizing the impeachment process by conducting hearings. He ought to be more upset at Republicans who refuse to respect subpoenas and who continue defending Trump by ignoring or rationalizing his conduct. But Graham would rather we put his political allegiance over a functioning democracy.
Trump doesn’t need any help embarrassing himself on the world stage, either. That’s what Twitter is for.
If Christians want to pray for the president, they should pray for accountability. Or that a thorough investigation finds that he did nothing wrong. Or maybe they should pray that everyone caught up in this latest Trump scandal faces the proper punishment. Some justice can’t wait for the afterlife.
