Placing prayer on his priority list, Franklin Graham announced April 14 that he would be traveling to all 50 states in 2016 to conduct prayer rallies.
Called the Decision America Tour, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse said the only hope for the United States is “Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ.”
Graham made the announcement on his Facebook page. “America is in trouble,” said Graham. “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.”
Graham urged Christians to not only vote in next year’s elections but to run for office at every level of public office.
“I want to challenge Christians to boldly live out their faith and to pray for our nation and its leaders,” he said.
Graham said the tour would not be endorsing any political candidates but asked believers to begin praying now for the tour. Visit billygraham.org.
