Nearly 125,000 people have gathered to intercede for America at the state-by-state prayer rallies that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has held as part of its Decision America Tour. In addition, another 60,000 people have participated in the tour through live viewing links on the internet, according to the ministry.
“I’m so thankful for each person, each family, each pastor, each church group who has come out to stand with us in prayer,” shared BGEA President Franklin Graham in a message to supporters last week.
“People are deeply concerned that we are losing our country unless God intervenes,” he noted.
At each of the rallies, Graham said those gathered follow the biblical example of Nehemiah’s plea to God for his troubled nation, praying in repentance of the sins of the nation, the sins in their own family and family heritage, and their personal sins.
“We ask God to heal our land, and we pray for the leaders of our communities, our state, and our country,” the evangelist reported.
Graham also takes a few minutes at each rally to share the Gospel message, and people in each state have been making decisions for Jesus Christ.
“I ask those who want to make that decision to text us – and thousands have done so,” he shared. “We get back to them for follow-up and offer helpful discipleship resources for their new walk. We marvel at how God works in hearts at each event and give Him all the glory.”
With 24 states left to go, the Decision America Tour travels next week to Springfield, Ill.; Madison, Wis.; and St. Paul, Minn. Then, during the last week of June, the tour will be in Salem, Ore., and Olympia, Wash., before heading to Juneau, Alaska, on July 1.
“If you live in one of these states, I hope and pray you will join us at the capitol,” Graham stated. “Bring your family, your Bible study group, and your friends.”
“We see God doing a great work, and we still have almost half the states to go,” he added.
