Franklin Graham plans to embark on a 50-state tour of the U.S. in 2016 to hold prayer rallies, to share the message of Jesus, and to challenge Christians to boldly live out their faith.
“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,” shared Graham on his Facebook page. “No political party or politician is the answer. The only hope for this country is Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ.”
The “Decision America Tour” will take the Gospel from Alaska to Alabama, as Graham calls on Christians to pray for the nation and its leaders, vote for candidates who will uphold biblical values, and 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,” Graham clarified.
The evangelist said more details on the tour will come at a later time. In the meantime, Graham is asking believers to pray for him and for the upcoming tour.
“I hope you will start praying with us now,” he concluded.
