Evangelist Franklin Graham called on Christians to pray for former President Donald Trump on social media Monday as talk of a Trump indictment reached fever pitch over the weekend.

“We need to pray for our country and where it is headed," Graham said, adding that the left are "paranoid" about Trump.

“Now they’re talking about the possibility of arresting him in the hopes that this would prevent him from running for president again—this would be a huge mistake. The charges against him are definitely politically motivated,” Graham said.

He then asked for prayer for Trump.

“I would like to ask Christians across this country to pray specifically for former President Donald J. Trump, that God’s hand would be upon him, protect him, and direct him in every step he takes—and that God’s will be done. We need to work together to strengthen this nation—not divide and destroy it,” Graham said.

New York state D.A. Alvin Bragg seems determined to indict Trump even though federal agencies have declined to do so.
