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. But no matter who is in the Oval Office, God is still on His throne. My hope is in Him. He is what our country needs. ‘And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you’ (Psalm 39:7),” Graham wrote on Facebook on Tueday.

He shared information from the American Psychological Association which revealed that the election season is a major source of stress for half of all Americans, and is being dubbed “Election Stess Disorder.”

Graham, who has not endorsed either Republican nominee Donald Trump nor his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for president, remarked that it has been an “ugly campaign season with a lot of surprises.”

“Yes, both candidates need God’s help. Yes, this is a critical election and a lot is at stake — namely the Supreme Court. There’s no question that Christians need to pray, to be involved, and to vote even in a tough election,” he added.
