President Donald Trump “understands the power of prayer,” Rev. Franklin Graham said on “Fox & Friends” after airstrikes on chemical-weapon targets in Syria.
“I appreciate that we have a president who understands prayer and solicits prayer,” Graham said Sunday. “Our country is in trouble, the world is in trouble, and the perplexity of the problems that the president faces every day — at home and abroad — is just incredible.”
Graham added, “The Bible tells us to pray for authority, not that those in authority are perfect people — they’re not. They’re imperfect, and that’s why God wants us to pray — to pray for the president, all those that are in leadership, and the president in turn asked us to pray for our soldiers, and those that were leading this charge, and for the Syrian people. And I just appreciate that we have a man in office that understands the power of prayer and the need for prayer.”
On Friday, Trump said during his remarks, “Tonight I ask all Americans to say a prayer for our noble warriors … as they carry out their missions. We pray that God will guide the whole region.”
The U.S., France and the U.K. launched airstrikes late Friday in response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons near the capital city of Damascus a week earlier. That attack killed dozens of civilians and injured hundreds others.
