Franklin Graham is traveling to all 50 states and holding prayer rallies at each state capital. Graham is well known for his work with Samaritan’s Purse; he joined the organization in 1974 and became president in 1979. He is now also the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).
The Decision America Tour 2016 is not a campaign for any political party or candidate. Graham is quite clear that has zero hope in the Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party members or anyone else to change the direction of our country. He urges all Christians to consider each candidate carefully and vote according to conscience. When possible, vote for candidates that support Christian morality. At each rally he encourages those present to carefully and prayerfully consider running for office at local levels of government, such as mayor, city council, county commission and school board. Many times voters would support a Christian candidate if there was one.

The current wallpaper is an image captured on Wednesday in front of the Georgia State Capitol Building in Atlanta. I was in that crowd, the size of which varies depending on who you believe. Numbers ranging from 3,400 to 6,800 have been offered. We heard two songs from Atlanta resident Tasha Cobbs (Break Every Chain) and Graham spoke for about 35 or 40 minutes. During that time we joined hands and prayed aloud.
Some have given up hope in the political process. Even Graham admits that in November we may have to vote for the lesser of two heathens. But that’s why a commitment to local governments and to the communities our churches are part of is more important than ever. In his words, this tour is nothing other than a campaign for God. Politics aside, let us pray together for this nation and its people.
