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.

    I went to Vermont rally because I don’t like the decisions made at the White House. I want the National Day of Prayer back there and to help pray with Franklin for USA. I am a youth leader at my Nazarene church and Mentee. I see a confused group of teens. College students moving out of our state because of no jobs. I want to get involved in politics now that I saw you. Dennis nice to see him, I meet him at a coffee house in Manchester, NH.

    I went to the Augusta Maine tour and it was an uplifting experience. So many Christians in one spot was overwhelming . I talked with many old friends and many new friends . As I talked I would ask for the first name of one person they knew who was unsaved so I could add them to our Thursday night Men’s night out Bible study list we are praying for. I hope this inspires others to do the same thing in their churches homes and communities. We need more Christians in Maine.

    I am a “good old age” but would like so much to join you at Columbus, OH. I know there is standing room only at these capitol gatherings. Is it possible to bring a chair and sit? I would still be able to hear even though not to see but I don’t want to break BGEA policy. Thank you,

    1. BGEA says:

      People have brought chairs to the past rallies, so it likely would be acceptable here, too. Thanks for checking, and for making plans to join us in Ohio!

    Thank you Jesus and Franklin!
