“America is at a crossroads, and I believe we should take every opportunity to stand up for the things of God and His Word.” –Franklin Graham
In 2016, Franklin Graham traveled to all 50 states, holding prayer rallies in every capital city. More than 230,000 people joined him in person as he challenged believers to pray, vote and engage in the political process. He also shared the Gospel at each stop, resulting in thousands of indicated decisions to accept Jesus Christ.
The tour may have come to a close, but the mission behind it has never been more important. Franklin Graham is continuing to challenge Christians to live out their faith in every part of their lives and to pray for our nation. Just as Nehemiah cried out to God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore hope to His people, Christians must cry out to God on behalf of the country. He is the only hope for America.
Franklin Graham has devoted his life to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meeting the needs of people around the world. The eldest son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, he serves as President and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. His first evangelistic event with the ministry was held in 1989, and since then, he has spent the last three decades spreading the Good News, holding 183 Festivals in 37 states and 48 countries. His Decision America Tour made headlines in 2016 as he visited all 50 United States capitols, challenging Christians to lead lives rooted in Biblical principles and to pray earnestly for America.
Franklin Graham also is the President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse. Under his leadership, the international relief and evangelism organization has met the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people in more than 100 countries.
