Trump’s inauguration had the blessing of God. Rev. Franklin Graham confirmed this at the closure of the inauguration. He was part of the clergy that gave its prayer for the President and his country.
Graham waited for President Trump to finish his speech, and spoke to the him. Then he read a passage from the Bible.
“Mr. President, in the Bible, rain is a sign of God’s blessing and it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the platform and it’s my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration and may he bless America.”
Graham continued with the passage from 1 Timothy 2.
“I urge then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings for all who those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness,” Rev. Graham.
“This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth for there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind — the man Christ Jesus who gave himself as a ransom for all people,” Graham continued reading.
“Now to the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, the honor and glory forever in Jesus name, Amen,” Graham finished his prayer.
The inaugural ceremony was enriched with remarks of other members of the clergy, and President Trump also spoke about God in his address.
“The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable,” President Trump said.
“There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God,” Trump continued.
The new President noted that we’re all God’s children.
“And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same Almighty Creator,” Trump continued.
Graham said that we should all turn to God and pray.
“Now is the time to come together in unity and work together. Our nation has so many problems that need fixing. Even more important are the spiritual needs of our country. Whether we are rich or poor, without Jesus Christ we are the most desperately in need, the poorest of the poor. We cannot ignore His hand and His supreme authority,” Graham said.
“One thing is for sure, we need to pray for our new president, vice president, and our other leaders every day—whether we agree with them or not,” he added. “They need God’s help and direction. It is my prayer that we will truly be ‘one nation under God.’”
What do you think of Graham’s opinion? Are we really blessed?
