Franklin Graham Asks People Of Tennessee To Pray For A Miracle

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Evangelist Franklin Graham, who is bringing his Decision America tour to Chattanooga's Coolidge Park, said he wants the people of Tennessee "to pray for a miracle - the kind of miracle that will solve the racial, political and cultural divisions that are leaving people across America filled with fear and uncertainty."

The tour will stop here on May 15 at 7:30 p.m.

"Last year I went to all 50 state capitals to encourage Christians to pray for America. But our country is still in trouble and needs prayer more than ever. We desperately need a spiritual transformation," said Rev. Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse. "Christians are the key to this spiritual transformation in America, and that's why I will also be challenging people in Tennessee to stand boldly for God, live according to biblical principles and get involved in their communities."

In Chattanooga, the one-day Decision America Tennessee Tour event will feature prayer plus live music from Dove Award-winning band The Afters and a message of hope from Franklin Graham. Decision America Tennessee Tour is free and everyone is invited to attend.

"We all face crossroads in our lives—moments when we need to make important decisions," said Rev. Graham. "Through these events across Tennessee, people will have the opportunity to make a decision that can impact their lives, not only now, but for eternity."

Rev. Graham said that even as he traveled the country last year with Decision America Tour, speaking to and praying with more than 230,000 people who joined him along the way, he felt a calling to share the same life-changing message of Jesus Christ in smaller towns where larger events may not typically visit.

In addition to Chattanooga, Franklin Graham is bringing the Decision America Tennessee Tour to Clarksville (May 18), Jackson (May 19) and Memphis (May 21). For additional information, visit tennessee.billygraham.org.

Roy Exum: Who Do You Trust?

About this time last month a 25-year-old kid with a fresh degree in “public policy” left me a phone call hoping to get my views. Joda Thongnopnua is the Democratic candidate for the State House in District 30 and he is like a load of other erstwhile politicians in my experience who I’ve never heard of but “really want to meet me” … this with less than a month before they “really” ...
