Franklin Graham Is Coming to Your State

Franklin Graham
Franklin Graham's 50-state tour kicks off in Iowa, followed by stops in Florida, Louisiana and New Hampshire.

Starting in January, Franklin Graham will visit all 50 states, challenging Christians to pray for the country and take a stand for their faith. This urgent mission has been dubbed the Decision America Tour, and you can be part of it.

Tour dates for the first three months of 2016 have been announced. The locations so far are:

Des Moines, Iowa – January 5
Tallahassee, Florida – January 12
Baton Rouge, Louisiana – January 13
Concord, New Hampshire – January 19
Columbia, South Carolina – February 9
Atlanta, Georgia – February 10
Honolulu, Hawaii – February 24
Denver, Colorado – March 15
Santa Fe, New Mexico – March 16
Phoenix, Arizona – March 18
Salt Lake City, Utah – March 29
Carson City, Nevada – March 30
Sacramento, California – March 31

At each stop, Franklin Graham will hold a prayer rally, calling on Americans to boldly live out their faith and help turn the country back to God.

“I think the problem with our nation today is the failure of the Church,” Franklin Graham said. “We have gotten ourselves into a mess as a country,” he added, and said there’s only one source of hope.

“I don’t have hope in the Republican party or the Democratic party. The only hope that I have is in the Church if it would repent of its sins,” he said. “And if we confess our sins individually and then repent, then I believe God … can use us.”

Franklin will ask Christians to pray for the country, vote for people who hold biblical values and run for public office at every level. He will not endorse any candidates in the 2016 race but will preach the Gospel at each rally.

“God hears the prayers of his people, so I’m calling on people of faith in every state to pray fervently for America and our leaders,” Franklin Graham said on his Facebook page. “I want to challenge Christians across our land to boldly live out and promote biblical principles at home, in public and at the ballot box. The only hope for this country is if the people of God are willing to take a stand for truth and righteousness.”

While the country has been racing toward moral decline, Franklin says it isn’t too late to save it.

“We need to go back to where the Church is in the center of this nation,” he said. “And God just might use the Church to turn this country around.”

    I was at the Albany NY stop on 8/25 It was blessed and powerful. I would suggest one thing, in the back of the crowd there was a small group of protesters with the rainbow flag and signs. During the prayers where we prayed for many things., I think that if Franklin would have made a small prayer for the protesters, not that they convert but that God loves them and would love for them to know him. This is Biblical because God says for us to love our enemies. It would have been a blessed touch to the tour. God Bless and Keep You and keep up the good work. Joe T.

    Actually a question….Is it better if we are already a strong christian to stay home & leave room for those who need to hear the Gospel message? I would have no problem coming to support the Decision America Tour, but if it is crowded I would hate to take up a space that someone else could have so that their life might be forever changed!!!! After all, we could still support the mission from wherever we are with prayer, financially, & encouraging words to others to listen to what Franklin has to say. I guess if we do feel led to go, make sure to take an unsaved person ALONG!!!
