Christians should pray for President Joe Biden’s full recovery from COVID-19, evangelist Franklin Graham told his millions of followers on social media, stressing that the Bible instructs believers to pray for those in authority.
“The news reports that President Joe Biden has COVID-19 and is experiencing very mild symptoms,” Graham, who heads Samaritan’s Purse and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote on Facebook.
“We need to lift him up in prayer. The Bible instructs us to pray for all those in authority, and that includes whether we agree with their policies and politics or not,” he added.
The fully vaccinated and twice boosted Biden tested positive on Thursday morning, though the 79-year-old commander-in-chief is experiencing “very mild symptoms,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement.
