Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham has said that despite all the stress and negativity of the ongoing presidential election season, he is still praying that God will give America a president that will follow Him.
"I am praying for God to give us a president, a vice president, and other leaders in this country who will acknowledge Him and look to Him for direction.

A woman who revealed to the Rev. Billy Graham that her past abortion is now causing her to feel deep guilt and sorrow every time she sees children has asked if those feelings will ever subside.
"Maybe some women can go through an abortion and never feel guilty, but I'm not one of them. I feel terrible over what I did, and every time I drive by a school playground I'm almost consumed with grief. Will I ever get over this?" the unnamed woman asked in a question-and-answer column published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Thursday.
Graham responded that while what she did "was wrong in God's eyes," she needed to know that God "has not rejected you or abandoned you." more >>
