WATCH: Roger Stone Describes How Jesus Christ Saved His Soul When He Was at His Lowest Point
Veteran political operative Roger Stone has been involved in many political schemes throughout the years, but his experience nearly going to prison humbled the man and brought him closer to the Lord.
Stone credits pastor Franklin Graham for giving him the greatest advice of his life while he was desperate and hoping for clemency from President Donald Trump following his railroading by the deep state.
“And I knew that I would be in a position of praying for clemency from our president, and I laid out my concerns to Rev. Graham, and I asked him if he could perhaps put in a good word for me with my friend of forty years, the president,” Stone said.
He added: “He said, ‘I can personally guarantee you that if you re-affirm your commitment to Jesus Christ, if you will wipe away your sins and pledge to walk in his way, and what the Lord really wants is best efforts and serious efforts, he knows you’re not perfect. He knows you will fall again, but you have to get back on the path, and if you will do that, I guarantee you that God will protect you, that God will deliver you from your persecutors.'”
Stone noted that this was not the first time that he had received this advice, but it was the first time it really resonated during his time of despair.
Stone said: “We came to the part in Franklin Graham’s oration where he said, ‘I don’t care if your problem is alcoholism or drug abuse or family problems or health problems or financial problems or relationship problems. God will help you. God will protect you. God will support you if you will stand up and pledge your allegiance, invite Him into your life, clear in the sin in your life, and pledge to walk in His way.'”
“And in that moment, with 400 other Christians, I stood up and took that pledge, and I wasn’t embarrassed. And immediately, it felt like a cement block had been removed from my chest. So, I’m living proof that prayer works. I’m living proof that God will protect his people. I really believe the Lord gave the president the guidance to do the right thing as He gives the president guidance everyday,” he added.

Big League Politics reported on Stone’s full conversion to Christianity when he initially announced it following his clemency:
Recently commuted political operative Roger Stone has two men to thank for his newfound freedom: President Donald Trump, and, more importantly, Jesus Christ.
Stone has been involved in political dirty tricks throughout his career and has never been a member of the Christian Right, to put it mildly, but his attempted railroading has caused him to become close to Jesus Christ and discover his faith.
He told CBN News about how he attended an outdoor church service in Florida held by Franklin Graham in January. This was during a low point of his life, and Stone finally summoned the courage to accept Christ as his savior.
“At that moment, I felt the calling,” Stone said. “I stood up with 500 other people. I wasn’t the slightest bit embarrassed. I confess that I was a sinner. I repeated a pledge that he recited, and it was as if a cement block was lifted off my chest. I can’t even explain it.”
“I was never scared. I was never worried. I was completely confident that the Lord would guide the president to do the right thing,” he added.
Although Stone admits to being part of some shady operations throughout his political career, he does not consider his involvement in Trump’s presidential victory in 2016 being among them. He maintains that he behaved with integrity and told the truth while helping push Trump to the White House.
“I don’t regret anything that I did in 2016 because I didn’t break the law,” Stone said to CBN News. “They wanted me to lie, to bear false witness against the president in return for some kind of leniency.”
Stone claims that his newfound faith has made him at peace with the situation, and he does not seek vengeance against the deep state, fake news, and Democrat Party hacks who tried to destroy his life.
“Here’s the big difference. In the old days, I would have wanted revenge. I would have wanted to take revenge against every one of them but now I’ve realized that vengeance is God’s, it’s not mine,” he said.
Stone’s conversion shows that the Lord works in mysterious ways and will always reward faith in His word.
