During the closing night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, Franklin Graham shared a prayer with our nation live from the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
In addition to thanking God for the past four years under the Trump administration, Franklin asked God to unite our nation during a time when many are divided.
Read Franklin’s full prayer below:
Let us pray.
Our Heavenly Father which art in Heaven, we thank You for the great bounty You have bestowed on this nation, and the many blessings we have received these past four years. We are forever grateful.
As we come tonight, our country is facing trouble. Tens of thousands are in the path of a deadly storm. The pandemic has gripped millions of hearts with fear. We’re divided. We have witnessed injustice. Anger and despair have flowed into the streets. We need Your help. We need to hear Your voice at this crucial hour.
We ask that You would unite our hearts, to be one nation under God—for You are our only hope.
We declare today our total dependence upon You and our need of repentance as a people.
I thank You tonight for our President Donald J. Trump. We pray that You would give him wisdom from on high, clarity of vision and strength as he leads this nation forward. Bless him.
We pray for our first lady Melania, their son Barron and all of the family. Protect them and keep them strong and safe.
We thank You for Vice President Mike Pence—for his steady hand and clear voice. We pray for second lady Karen Pence and their family.
Father, we know that You can make this nation great once again, if we turn our eyes and our hearts to You and follow Your Word in obedience. May Your will be done on this earth as it is in Heaven.
And we pray this in the mighty Name of Your Son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
