Billy Graham issued a statement after meeting with President Obama today at his home:

“I am pleased to have had President Obama in my home this afternoon,” said Mr. Graham. “He requested a meeting since he was spending the weekend nearby in Asheville. My son Franklin and I enjoyed a brief visit with the President, followed by a time of prayer together.

“I want to encourage Christians everywhere to pray for our President,” Mr. Graham added, “and for all those in positions of authority, and especially for the men and women serving in our military.”

Mr. Graham has met with every U.S. President since Harry Truman.
