Evangelist Franklin Graham launches his Route 66 preaching tour in Joliet Sept. 19. The tour will stop in St. Louis September 21 and follow “mother road” to California. Each of eight stops will feature an invitation for “those who don’t know Christ to surrender their lives to him,” according to the website. The Newsboys, Marcos Witt, and Dennis Agajanian will lead worship and music.
“The most critical thing you can do is pray, pray, pray,” Graham urged in preparation for the event. “The intercession of God’s people is crucial if we are to see a return to the biblical faith of our fathers, the faith that has guided and sustained our country for so long.” Graham is the oldest son of the late evangelist Billy Graham and the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse.
