Franklin Graham Draws Thousands to Washington Prayer Rally

Evangelist Franklin Graham drew a huge crowd in Olympia, Washington as part of his 50-state Decision America tour. The Olympian reports at least 5,000 people attended the hour long rally Wed. (June 29) that included prayers for the United States and its leadership. 

According to the Decision American tour website, “Franklin Graham is traveling to all 50 states in 2016 to hold prayer rallies, to preach the Gospel, and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action. He’ll be urging Christians to vote, to live out their faith in every part of their lives, and to pray for our nation just as Nehemiah cried out to God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore hope to His people.” 

Graham told rally attendees that his faith is not in either the Democratic or Republican party and he would not tell them who to vote for. However, he urged people to vote for the candidate that they felt best represented biblical values. 

The Decision America tour has 19 stops left. The full tour schedule can be viewed at
