The Rev. Franklin Graham Saturday called for prayers that "Islam will be stopped in its tracks" in light of claims by the Islamic State that the deadly Paris attacks were "the first of the storm."
Graham, head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan's Purse global charity, issued the plea on Twitter:
ISIS terrorists claimed responsibility
Saturday for the shootings and bombings that killed 128 people and wounded 352 in Paris.
The violence involved militants strapped with suicide bombing belts and carrying machine guns, ISIS said.

Graham ended his posts with a quote from I Timothy in the New Testament:
