Answered Prayers in Baton Rouge
“Christian bands played long and hard, lifting up the mighty Name of Jesus all afternoon and into the night,” said Franklin Graham. “The atmosphere was loud and rocking, but the youthful crowd quieted and listened attentively each time when I came on stage throughout the day to proclaim Jesus Christ as “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6, NKJV).”

    I thoroughly enjoyed Franklin’s message in Baton Rouge. So much so that I have been earnestly praying to the Lord about running for my local State Senate seat which comes up in a few years.
