Prayer Requests:

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” —Hebrews 4:16, NKJV

Acapulco, Mexico, Hurricane Otis Response: The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) is deployed to Mexico after Hurricane Otis, a Category 5 storm, slammed into Mexico’s southern Pacific coast. The hurricane claimed the lives of at least 48 people and resulted in widespread property damage, including more than 200,000 homes. Please pray for all those affected by this disastrous storm, for BG-RRT chaplains as they offer emotional and spiritual care, and for cooler temperatures in the area.

Maui, Hawaii, Wildfire Response: BG-RRT chaplains are deployed to Hawaii after a wildfire tore through Maui County. The area hardest hit is historic Lahaina, a town in west Maui that is also a popular tourist destination. Please pray for heartbroken residents. Ask God to pour out His comfort to all who are grieving loss of loved ones. Pray that God’s hope for tomorrow will shine through chaplains as they serve.

Ukraine Response: BG-RRT chaplains are offering the love and compassion of Christ in Ukraine. Ask God to use their efforts of ministry and training. Pray for Christians in the area, that they might encourage and point all who are suffering in the current crisis to Jesus Christ as their hope for the future. Ask God to continue to protect all who are serving.

Law Enforcement Community: Ask God to protect law enforcement officers as they serve our communities. Pray for wisdom and discernment as they assist in keeping order and safety in our streets. Lift up the families and agencies who have lost loved ones in recent days or years. Pray for God to comfort them like only He can.

Preemptive Prayers Relating to Man-Made Disasters: Please pray for God’s love and truth to penetrate the minds and hearts of those who might consider creating havoc that would result in injury to themselves and/or others. Invite God’s powerful presence to draw them to Himself, that they might know life in the fullest measure through Jesus Christ. Pray against the plan of the enemy to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10), and that the main focus will be our hope in Him.

Our Nation: Ask God to bring healing, unity, and restoration within our nation. Pray that those in authority over us will legislate according to the Word of God. Believe with us that He is still able to do far more than we can hope, think, or imagine (Ephesians 3:20), and can bring blessing and a restored future.

Thank you for praying!
