The weather was a bit cool but Franklin Graham got a warm welcome in Pasadena at Monday’s second Decision America California Tour stop. An estimated 4,700 came to the Rose Bowl Lawn to earnestly pray for and ask God to forgive our sins as a nation.

The 10-city California tour isn’t about politics but rather to pray for our political leaders and encourage believers to vote for Christian candidates. Monday night, Franklin Graham told the body of Christ—the church, that “Slowly, the government has been trying to shut our mouths.”

Billy Graham preached at his next to last Crusade at the Rose Bowl stadium in 2004. Monday, his son Franklin carried on his father's legacy on the same grounds. The nation’s most famous college football stadium was also used for the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games, five Super Bowls, the 1994 World Cup and the 1999 Women’s World Cup.

    America is living on the blessings of the answered prayers of its Founding Fathers, and she needs to continue on that path. I Thank God for the BGEA and its Crusades. The world needs the BGEA.
