During his surprise appearance, Farage, 56, claimed close pal Trump, 74, is "bringing Israel together with Arab nations in a way that nobody ever believed was possible" as he addressed the crowd onstage.
Polls show Arizona, a key battleground state, is still in play ahead of the election on November 3, with Biden holding a narrow lead.
Introducing Farage at Wednesday's rally six days before the election, Trump hailed the ex-UKIP leader as "one of the most powerful men in Europe".
Farage said to the President: "Oh I'm non-controversial and shy…compared to you."
FARAGE HAILS TRUMP
Farage said: "Four years ago I was honoured to come to America to bring the Brexit message.
"The message that you can beat the establishment and that is what Donald Trump did.
"He beat the pollsters. He beat the media. He beat all the predictions. And here's the worst bit, they've never forgiven him for it."
Farage then said of Trump: "This is the single most resilient and brave person I have ever met in my life.
"You are voting for the only current leader in the free world who has the guts to stand up for the nation state, to fight for patriotism, to fight against globalism."
Farage arrived in Arizona this morning, tweeting out a photo of himself in a group of Trump supporters with the hashtag #teamtrump.
Onstage later, he accused Trump's critics of spending four years "trying to delegitimise him".
Urging voters to cast their ballot for Trump, Farage claimed the US President stood for "decency, plainspeaking".
He added: "A man who in four years hasn't just cut your taxes, hasn't just improved the economy, but a man who right now is bringing Israel together with Arab nations in a way that nobody ever believed was possible."

Trump thanked Farage as he left the stage, saying, "I'm glad I called him up. That's something".
Following his appearance, Farage tweeted: "Very surprised to be asked onto the stage, delighted to do so.
"He is on top form."
Farage has been given "national interest” exemption from the US travel ban to appear at Trump's events.
