Rev. Franklin Graham took part Friday in the inaugural ceremony for the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump. Addressing Trump, Graham noted the weather may be a sign of things to come.

"Mr. President, in the Bible, rain is a sign of God's blessing. And it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the platform. It's my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration, and may He bless America.

The scripture comes from 1 Timothy 2: "I urge then first of all that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people. For kings, for all those in authority, that we may live peaceful, quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and it pleases God our savior who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of truth. For there is one god, and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus who gave himself as a ransom for all people."

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. In Jesus' name, Amen.
