Evangelist Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will conduct prayer rallies in all 50 states next year, including Baton Rouge on Jan. 13, 2016.
“I do not believe Republicans or Democrats or any other party can turn this nation around — only God can,” said Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in a news release. “God hears the prayers of his people, so we’ll be calling on Christians in every state to pray fervently and faithfully for America.”
Called Decision America Tour, “the focus of these prayer rallies will be to challenge Christians to pray for the United States and its leaders, and to live and promote biblical principles at home, in public and at the ballot,” according to the release.
Decision America Tour will not endorse political candidates or legislation, and no candidates or current public officials will speak at any of the rallies, the release says.
The location for the Baton Rouge event has not been determined. It is expected to be announced approximately 90 days before the event. For information, go to DecisionAmericaTour.com.
