Franklin Graham announced he will embark on a 50-state tour of the United States next year called the Decision America Tour. He made the following announcement on his Facebook page:

America is in trouble. At 62 years of age, I’ve lived long enough to learn that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can turn this country around; no political party or politician is the answer.

The only hope for this country is Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Next year I am planning to travel to all 50 states to conduct prayer rallies—we are calling this the Decision America Tour. I want to challenge Christians to boldly live out their faith and to pray for our nation and its leaders. I want to encourage Christians to get out and vote, and to cast their ballots for candidates who uphold biblical principles.

I want to strongly urge Christians to run for public office at every level—local, state, and federal. We will not be endorsing any political candidates, but I will be proclaiming the truth of God’s Gospel in every state. More details will come later. I hope you will start praying with us now.

  4. Laura Williamson says:

    How can we arrange for all Christians in the country or even the world to pray at the same time for our churches to reunite and for our governments to return to God so that as many as possible will be released from the deception and be saved?

  5. David Segraves says:

    THANK YOU and God bless you for leading this nation in prayer… in each state no less… prior to the 2016 Presidential election. [I attended the Michigan event.] PRAYER was the difference in this election, wouldn’t you agree?? I believe it!

    My family and I were watching your interview on TBN about Decision America, just by listening to the program, the Holy Spirit prompted us to get involved by seriously praying for America and our own communities that we live in. I come from a small community on the island of Lanai with a population of about 3,500 people, my wife and I will pray for your visitation to all 50 states that God will meet all your needs as you commit yourself to this calling you have, and I will pray if it’s God’s will for you to speak in our City then let it be so!! God bless you and Aloha!! PS, Thank you Dr. Graham for answering the call to our nation and beyond!! Praise God!!
