He doesn't have to be invited to pray (Thank God)

The ban on Christian prayers at the Pentagon by invited speakers remains in place today, compliments of a secular government and those who would rather placate Muslims than allow Christian prayers on the national day of prayer. But thankfully Franklin Graham won't let that stand in the way of his faith or his commitment to supporting our troops.

Despite Controversies, National Day of Prayer Proceeds

"I don't have to be invited to a prayer service to pray for the men and women who serve this nation who I'm so proud (of)," he said. "I want them to know that I support them."

Graham said that he has twice been to the Pentagon since Sept. 11, 2001, and preaches to military chaplains.

"It's just unfortunate that this decision was made by the Pentagon. The Muslims have their holidays that they celebrate at the Pentagon. They celebrated Ramadan. They have prayer services there. But for us Christians to have prayer services, and for them to object and for the Army to give in to their objections is something that I just don't understand," Graham said, adding that he and Muslims will never agree on the path to God.
