With the Republican National Convention about to begin at 1 p.m. EDT in Cleveland, Ohio, evangelist Franklin Graham is calling on all Christians to pray, in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14, for those involved in the political process.
"Much will be debated over the next several days at the both the Republican and the Democratic and conventions," he said Monday morning. "Without question, our nation's leaders on both sides of the aisle and our political process need prayer. We are in desperate need of divine intervention."

Can you imagine what God might do if there are tens of thousands of us praying together for this convention, for our leaders and for our nation?"
