Franklin Graham: We Need Prayers to Stop Islam ‘In Its Tracks’

Franklin Graham is tired of the death and torture of Christians and others who are the victims of radical Islam. And he’s saying exactly what he thinks on Twitter. Read for yourself what he has to say about the ongoing death and destruction that radical Islamists bring.

The Rev. Franklin Graham Saturday called for prayers that “Islam will be stopped in its tracks” in light of claims by the Islamic State that the deadly Paris attacks were “the first of the storm.”

Graham, head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan’s Purse global charity, issued the plea on Twitter:

ISIS terrorists claimed responsibility Saturday for the shootings and bombings that killed 128 people and wounded 352 in Paris.

The violence involved militants strapped with suicide bombing belts and carrying machine guns, ISIS said.

The attacks, described by France’s president as an act of war, were designed to show the country would remain in danger as long as it continued its current policies, the Islamic State said.

Graham ended his posts with a quote from I Timothy in the New Testament:

We can try to deny that the Western world is at war, but the evidence, the carnage, the blood of murdered victims says otherwise. When will the leaders of the Western world wake up? When do we eradicate this evil that is radical Islam? How many more have to die before those who can do something about, WILL do something about it? And yes, Rev. Graham, we must pray.
