Faces of the Decision America Tour

Franklin Graham is holding prayer rallies in each state to encourage people to pray for the nation to turn back to God and to live out their faith at home, in public and at the ballot box.

"God's not dead," a sentiment echoed by Franklin Graham in Arizona: "Jesus Christ is not dead," he told the crowd. "He's alive here at the State Capitol."

From chilly Iowa to sunny Hawaii, the 50-state Decision America Tour with Franklin Graham is on a roll. Thousands of people across the first 10 states have come out to join the tour so far, including many children. The tour has stopped in Iowa, Florida, Louisiana, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Ten states down, 40 to go.

“Our country is in trouble,” Franklin Graham has said on the Decision America Tour. "It’s in big-time trouble. The moral and political walls of our nation are crumbling. The most important thing we can do as Christians is pray.”

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." —2 Chronicles 7:14, NKJV

    I was greatly encouraged by the turn out here in Denver CO

  9. Lynne Erickson says:

    I pray for your father, Billy, every day as well as you, Franklin, Anne, Pastor Lutzer and Ravi Zacharias.
    I will forward a contribution as soon as I can. My sister is very sick right now, and I’m helping pay the medical bills, but I can still pray.

  10. Katie woodruff says:

    “If all the people who are called by my name will humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways and seek my face I will hear from Heaven and heal their land. It is US. Those called by His name. He will answer to us if we turn from our apathy and indulgence and turn back to Him. It’s US. Not the politicians. He will hear. But just think what could happen if we started to care about getting righteous people in office to lead us. All the way from our local communities to the highest office in the land! America, no doubt, we need Gods blessing and grace on us. But, WE –“those who are called by His name”– need to BLESS GOD.
