Franklin Graham Completes Decision America Tour
Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association last week completed his 50 state Decision America Tour in preparation for the upcoming elections and encouraging Christians and America to put our hope in the Lord Jesus Christ, above any other person.
The last stop on the tour was Thursday, October 13 in Raleigh, NC where a large crowd gathered to pray and seek the face of God.
"So much of our politics in this country is broken, and no political party or individual is going to be able to turn this around," Franklin Graham said Thursday.
Graham updated his Facebook status saying,
"Today (Thursday) we held our 50th Decision America Tour prayer rally. It was great to see a crowd of 14,200 people come together in prayer on the capitol grounds in my home state of North Carolina. When God laid it on my heart to go to all 50 state capitals to pray for the nation, I had no idea what was in store. But we have had over 236,000 people come out for the rallies, and more than 250,000 watched online or on social media. The most exciting part is that over 9,000 individuals have shared with us that they made a decision to trust Jesus Christ by faith after I shared the Gospel and gave an invitation at the rallies. That’s the power of the Gospel. Today a man told our team that he watched the livestream on his iPad with his 97-year-old mother, and she prayed to accept Christ as her personal Savior. We give God the glory for all that He has done and ask you to continue praying for our country. This isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning. Christians need to pray, to get involved in their communities, and to vote. There are only 26 days left until the election and we need to be praying every day for the future of America—we need God’s help.
"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14)."
