In these final days before the Elections, Christian leaders across the nation are encouraging believers to pray for the nation, prepare by urging others to vote, and participate by voting their values.
Soon to be 94 years old, Evangelist Billy Graham has taken an unprecedented role by publishing full page ads in a number of national newspapers. In a press statement, his evangelistic association said Mr. Graham desires “to publicly call America back to God and to prayer, and to draw attention to moral issues that are clearly addressed in the Bible and have increasingly become part of a national political dialog.”
In these newspaper ads, Mr. Graham says, “The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is critical…. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.”
