Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, has urged Christians to pray for “peace and calm” during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris Wednesday.

“Today as our country inaugurates a new president, there are concerns that there could be violence in Washington, DC, and in state capitals across the nation. I encourage Christians to make this a day of prayer—for peace and calm, and praying for our new leaders, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris,” Graham, who also leads Samaritan’s Purse, said in a statement on Facebook.

Graham’s call for calm comes in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol building by pro-Trump supporters and others in Washington, D.C., that left five people dead. The protesters sought to prevent the confirmation of Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election by Congress.
