Rev. Franklin Graham urged followers in a Veterans Day message to pray for the country and its president amid concerns of socialist encroachment.
“Today we honor all of our military veterans who have served to defend the freedoms of this nation, and the blood that has been shed for us and for future generations,” Graham wrote on social media. “We owe them a great debt.”
Graham went on to tell his Facebook and Twitter followers: “It seems our nation is under attack — attack from within, from socialists who want to bring anarchy to our streets.”
“The hard-won freedoms that we have enjoyed in America are very much at stake,” he added.
“Pray for the President, our Commander-in-Chief, as he leads the nation during these turbulent times, that God would give him wisdom, grace, and understanding for times such as these.”
Graham received both support and criticism
