Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says she is ready to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump at the November elections, expressing hope that he can change and become a man of God like King Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible.
“The Democratic Party has so come against God in some of their major issues, that I’m not sure I can vote for the Democratic platform. But whoever is on the Republican side, I will vote for and pray for whoever that is,” Lotz said in an interview with Fox News, published on Monday.
When asked whether she can vote for Trump, who is likely to secure the nomination but has faced pushback from notable Evangelical Christians, such as Southern Baptist Convention leader Russell Moore, Lotz said the Bible is full of examples of kings who have changed their ways.
“My faith is not in a person, my faith is in God. If God can use Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel’s day — Daniel served under Nebuchadnezzar, and at the end, Nebuchadnezzar professed faith in the God of Daniel” — then He can use Trump, too, she argued.
“A man, doesn’t matter who that person is, but God’s people need to pray for that person, that he will turn to God, and who knows,” she added.
Lotz, who was recently chosen as the new chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, talked about her newly released book, The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, based on the story of Daniel as found in the Bible.
She argued that America is in need of such a big, life-changing prayer event in order to reverse the course that the nation is taking.
“I think legally, educationally, institutionally, governmentally — in so many ways, we are abandoning our faith in God, and we are abandoning God. And when you do, the Bible says God will back away from you and abandon you,” the evangelist said.
