It was an overcast, drizzly day in Juneau, Alaska, but an estimated 750 people came out anyway, eager to pray together for the nation during the 32nd stop on Franklin Graham's Decision America Tour. Juneau's population is about 32,400.
Franklin Graham praying
Franklin Graham is familiar with Alaska, being heavily involved in Operation Heal Our Patriots, an Alaska-based outreach to wounded veterans and their spouses. Friday, though, at the start of the 4th of July weekend, he focused on leading people in prayer and motivating them to get involved in the political process.

Alaska, "The Last Frontier," is home to some of the most beautiful landscape in America, including the incredible Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau.

During each prayer rally, Franklin Graham challenges people to not only live out their faith at home but in public and at the polls, too.
Although they weren't able to meet at the State Capitol, hundreds gathered at Savikko Park about 10 minutes away.
