Six Florida Cities, Thousands of New Lives in Christ

Six cities, more than 39,000 people and thousands starting or coming back to a relationship with Jesus Christ. We give God the glory for changed hearts on the Decision America Sunshine State Tour with Franklin Graham. Fort Myers, Florida, was the final stop.
Franklin Graham talked about the temptation and trials of this earthly life. “Whatever mountain you’re facing tonight, I’m here to tell you that God knows about it and He loves you. He wants to forgive you and cleanse you. He wants to have a relationship with you.”
The Hertz Arena was filled to capacity at an estimated 8,000 people, who heard this from Franklin Graham: “Sin is sin. And sin separates you from God. God cannot allow sin in His presence.” But there is Good News, he continued. “God is ready to forgive you tonight and He’ll cleanse you. He’ll take that guilt and shame out of your life.” >> Ask God to change your heart.
Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and serene settings are common in Fort Myers. The picturesque city is located in Southwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.
As beautiful as Florida is, it doesn't compare to these lovely smiles.
Jeremy Camp talked about recently reflecting on Christ being crucified for his and everyone's sins, and how it should have been him instead. Then this: “I was so overwhelmed with joy. ‘Jesus, You took my place.’”
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." —Matthew 22:37
The Decision America events aren’t political but evangelistic. People come together to pray for God to forgive sin, for America to come back to Him and for elected officials in our states and nation. >> Read a wrap-up story about the tour.
Dennis Agajanian is always a crowd favorite.
Nearly half of people in Florida say they don’t believe in the accuracy of the Bible. Like his father, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham preaches from God's Word.
Among professing Christians in Florida, nearly one in five say they don’t have any assurance about what will happen when they die. Please pray for the people of Florida and all across our country to come to know the Lord.
Thank you to all our prayer counselors who talk with people after they've made a decision to surrender their hearts to the Lord.
Worship is showing adoration for God, who gave His Son to die on a cross for our sins so we can live in heaven with Him.
Fort Myers is on the Gulf Coast in Southwest Florida. Area beaches are known for their beautiful white sand and blue waters.
"If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me." —Psalm 139:9-10
Helping people find new life in Christ is at the heart of the Decision America Tour. Please pray for everyone from the top to the lower tip of Florida who did, that they will find community in a Bible-based church.
