If you are a faithful person, you might believe in signs, especially signs from God. On the day of Trump’s inauguration, America’s pastor, Franklin Graham, son of Rev. Billy Graham, believed he saw a sign from God the moment Donald Trump took the stage to give his inaugural speech as the 45th President. Franklin believed that sign was a sign of God’s blessing.
What was that sign from God? It was rain. Why would rain be a sign of God’s blessing? Graham stated, “In the Bible, rain is a sign of God’s blessing.”

Following Trump’s first address as the 45th president, Rev. Franklin Graham referenced that it started to rain when Trump stepped to the podium and that rain is a sign of God’s blessing.
“In the Bible, rain is the sign of God’s blessing, and it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the platform,” Graham said.
North Carolina-based evangelist Franklin Graham said his prayer was that God would bless the new president, his family, his administration “and may He bless America.”
Graham then proceeded to read first from 1 Timothy 2:1-6, which exhorts believers to pray for their leadership. He then concluded with 1 Timothy 1:17, which reads “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Graham, who heads the Charlotte-based Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was one of six clergy members – five of them Christian – who offered prayers or read from Scripture during the inauguration for Trump, who is Presbyterian.
Graham’s last participated at a presidential inaguration in 2001, when then-President George W. Bush was sworn in for his first term.
Graham’s famous father, Charlotte-born evangelist Billy Graham, now 98, gave prayers at the presidential inaugurations of Richard Nixon (in 1969), George H.W. Bush (in 1989) and Bill Clinton (in 1993 and 1997).
As Christians we owe President Trump the benefit of the doubt. You may not like that he is our president, but we need to respect him as our president and the most important leader of the free world. Is he going to make mistakes? Yes. Are you going to like all of his decisions? No. But Donald J. Trump is our president, like it or not, and you are going to have to deal with it at least for the next four years!
Of course Liberals will scoff at Franklin Graham’s words. But for many Christians who realize how screwed we would’ve been under Hillary, we are literally on our knees every night thanking God that he diverted our country away from the disaster that would’ve been a Hillary Clinton presidency.
