Prayer Requests:

Thank you for praying for the ministry of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT).

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

British Columbia, Canada, Fire Responses: The BG-RRT in Canada has deployed chaplains to Cache Creek and Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, in response to the Forest Fire. Please lift up residents in both these cities, that they would know the love and comfort of God as they face the aftermath of the wildfire.

Hurricane Ida Responses: The BG-RRT has deployed alongside Samaritan’s Purse to Houma, Northshore, and Metairie, Louisiana, after Hurricane Ida swept through the Gulf, destroying homes and businesses. Pray for all those who are grieving loss from this devastating hurricane. Pray for BG-RRT chaplains as they offer the love and compassion of Christ during this difficult time to the communities. Pray that individuals would seek relationship with Christ and would turn to Him for help and hope.

Plumas County, California, Fire Response: BG-RRT chaplains are deployed beside Samaritan’s Purse to the Plumas County, California, part of the area destroyed by the massive Dixie Fire. Please invite the Lord to minister to those who have been affected by this heartbreaking disaster. Ask God to use BG-RRT chaplains as they serve in the area.

Metro Detroit, Michigan, Flood Response: BG-RRT chaplains are ministering with Samaritan’s Purse in Detroit, Michigan, after major flooding destroyed more than 700 homes in the metro area. Ask God to meet every need of those suffering. Pray for BG-RRT chaplains as they offer the hope of Christ to this hurting community.

Our Nation: As we find ourselves in unprecedented days in our nation, ask God to bring healing, unity and restoration. Pray that elected officials 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 (cf. Ephesians 3:20), and can bring blessing and a restored future.

Law Enforcement Appreciation Events: Please pray for upcoming Law Enforcement Appreciation Events and ask God to be in every detail. Pray that officers and spouses will come away refreshed, renewed, and able to continue to make a difference in their communities.

Law Enforcement Officers Nationwide: As officers are sworn to serve and protect their communities, ask God to bring great wisdom and discernment to each one. Pray for their protection, as well as the protection of their homes and families. Ask the Lord to encourage them and give them strength to serve in their calling of law enforcement. Thank God with us for those who are willing to be the thin blue line to bring protection to our communities.

Billy Graham Burial Site Ministry of Presence: BG-RRT chaplains are offering a ministry of presence at Mr. Graham’s gravesite at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. Recognizing this is a memorial site where people come to pay their respects, chaplains are there to listen and pray for the individual needs of those who stop by.

Preemptive Prayers Relating to Natural Disasters: Ask the Lord to push back extreme weather conditions. Since Jesus Himself said, “Peace be still,” to the storm, pray for accommodating weather patterns. Thank Him with us for taking care of our every need.

Preemptive Prayers Relating to Man-Made Disasters: Please pray for God’s love and truth to penetrate the minds and hearts of those who may be considering creating havoc that would result in injury to themselves and/or others. Invite God’s powerful presence to draw people to Himself that they might know life in the fullest measure through Christ.

Thank you for praying!

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” — Psalm 46:1, ESV
