Franklin Graham Calls for ‘Prayer March’ on National Mall on Same Day as Religious-Right ‘Return’ Rally

Evangelist and right-wing political activist Franklin Graham announced Saturday that he will host a “prayer march” from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 26, the same day that End Times author Jonathan Cahn and a large group of religious-right leaders have organized an all-day political prayer rally on the National Mall that they are calling “The Return.” It is unclear if the two events ​are or will be coordinated. “Our only hope for this country is God,” ​Graham said in a half-minute video posted to his Facebook page​ Saturday. On Sunday, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association posted a one-minute video promoting the march. The announcements from Graham and BGEA made no mention of “The Return​,” ​although Graham’s sister, Anne Graham Lotz, is on the advisory board for “The Return.” Graham’s march has been endorsed by Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee President Ronnie Floyd and former SBC President Jack Graham. In announcing that tour​, he made the politics behind it clear: The only hope for this country is Almighty God and His Son. We can’t sit idly by any longer. LGBT activists, abortion rights advocates, aggressive atheist groups, and others who ignore God’s Word are trying to shove their agenda down our throats. We need to take every opportunity to speak up for biblical standards and let our lights shine.
