Evangelist Franklin Graham has not been shy about rallying the faithful to support President Trump and his administration. Mr. Graham repeatedly asked the public to pray for Mr. Trump before the 2016 election. The pastor again called for prayer earlier this month as the threat of impeachment loomed against the president, the dire situation amplified by some Democrats and plenty of negative news coverage.

Mr. Graham now has issued both a judgment call on the events and another plea for prayer. He remains straightforward about the House impeachment hearings that opened Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

“It’s a day of shame for America. The media is calling the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry ‘historic’ and it is — historically shameful. That our politicians would bring this kind of harm to our country over a phone call, with the world watching, is unbelievable,” Mr. Graham said in a public message shared through social media.

“As Christians, as those who follow and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, let us pray throughout the day and all of these proceedings. Pray for our nation, pray for our leaders, and pray for President Donald J. Trump,” the pastor advised.

Interest in his words appears intense. Mr. Graham’s message drew 30,000 comments and 60,000 shares within hours of its publication on Facebook alone.
