Franklin Graham ahead of prayer march: US has reached a 'boiling point'

by Tola Mbakwe

Rev Franklin Graham has said current events this year such as the coronavirus pandemic and injustice has caused the US to reach a boiling point.

He told The Christian Post: "I think there's kind of a boiling point here with many people," he said. "We have seen injustice on our streets and some of our communities. The frustration that people aren't heard, that people are marginalized. It seems that all of this is boiling at the same time. 

"Republicans cannot fix it; Democrats cannot fix it. Only God can."

The US evangelist was speaking in an interview ahead of his national prayer march taking place on 26th September in Washington DC.

Thousands of people will walk on the National Maill from Lincoln Memorial to the US Captiol building, pausing to pray and different landmarks.

He said in a video on the event website: "America is in trouble, it's in distress, but we do have hope and that hope is in almighty God.

"We need to pray now more than ever, more than we've ever done in our life. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided and there's fear and uncertainty all around us."

Rev Graham told The Christian Post it's hard to say whether there can be a Great Awakening in the nation because many pastors won't be vocal and give the Biblical view on controversial subjects. 

"For many in the Church today, they're comfortable and a lot of our pastors don't want to rock the boat," he said.

However, be believes 2020's events have caused people to think about their spiritual lives. 

"I just sense there is something moving in our country. I don't believe that our country is going to be spared from God's judgment. We are not a Christian nation. We are a secular nation and the secularists are wanting to strip God out of everything," he said.
