(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Reverend Franklin Graham offered a powerful and inspiring Christmas message on Fox & Friends on Wednesday, providing much-needed positivity for religious Americans all over the country during a troubling time of year.
“There are many people that are so afraid and so discouraged this Christmas,” Graham said to Fox host Ainsley Earhardt. “Many people are alone because of the virus. But I want people to know that God loves them and that God cares for them.”
Graham reminded viewers that God sent his Son to earth to save us.
“And He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, from Heaven to this Earth at Christmas. And he came not to condemn the world but to save the world,” he added.

“Jesus Christ isn’t dead. He’s alive and he will come into any heart that is willing to invite him and trust him and put their faith in him. He will forgive our sins and heal us,” Graham continued.
The high-profile Christian preacher, son of evangelical legend Billy Graham who died in 2018, said that while America has “never had a Christmas season like this in history,” with lockdowns and widespread fear, he wanted people to “know that God has not forgotten them and God loves them very much.”
Graham’s Christmas message was posted to his social media and received a fantastic reception, though primarily from conservatives. A staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, Graham has received his fair share of attacks from the far-left media.
Despite this, Graham called for prayers for both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Pray for @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, pray for @JoeBiden, and pray for our nation-that we will get through this, and for God’s will be done,” he said.

Graham told Fox News how his charity, Samaritan’s Purse, was also helping people all over the world this Christmas.
“We’ve got about 9 million shoebox gifts going out to children around the world right now, to about 130 countries,” he said. “This is a massive undertaking. It’s the largest Christmas program in the world today.”
Graham also encouraged people to get involved by volunteering their time to help pack and deliver gifts.
