Prayer Requests:

Thank you for praying for the ministry of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT). Your prayer efforts are so appreciated. “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

Dumas, Arkansas, Flood Response: BG-RRT chaplains are responding alongside Samaritan’s Purse to Dumas, Arkansas, due to severe flood damage after the area received 20 inches of rain in the last few days. Please keep residents in prayer, as they begin to rebuild their homes. Ask the Lord to meet them where they are with His love through the ministry of our chaplains.

Mound Bayou, Mississippi, Flood Response: BG-RRT chaplains are also deploying to Mound Bayou, Mississippi, after a severe flooding occurred in the area. Please pray for those whose homes have been damaged as a result of this flood, that they would know the comfort of God during this difficult time.

Iberville Parish, Louisiana, Flood Response: The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team responded alongside Samaritan’s Purse after 25 inches of rain fell that contributed to an Aqua Dam failure. Please pray for those whose homes have been damaged. Ask God to comfort each individual. Lift up BG-RRT chaplains as they offer the love and compassion of Christ in the area.

Lake Charles, Louisiana, Flood Response: The BG-RRT is deploying crisis-trained chaplains to provide emotional and spiritual care alongside Samaritan’s Purse as a result of flash flooding that caused more than a foot of rain and subsequent flooding. Please pray for all those in the community that are detrimentally affected. Ask God to meet their every need. Pray for BG-RRT chaplains as they offer the love and compassion of Christ to those suffering.

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 Retreats and Dinners. Ask God to be in every detail of these events. 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 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.

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.

Thank you for praying!
