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

Hurricane Laura, Sally, Delta, Response: BG-RRT is working alongside Samaritan’s Purse (SP) in Lake Charles, DeRidder, DeQuincy, Louisiana, as well as Foley, Alabama, to provide emotional and spiritual care to all those impacted by three hurricanes that devastated many in their paths. Please see specific requests below.

  • Lake Charles, Louisiana: Please lift up BG-RRT chaplains as they serve in Lake Charles. Ask God to strengthen and sustain each one. Pray for local residents, and ask God to meet every need. Pray for the host church and staff as they work with BG-RRT to serve the community.
  • DeRidder, Louisiana: Lift up the locals affected by recent hurricanes. Continue praying for BG-RRT chaplains and pray for volunteers to come to the site to help those who are still waiting. Ask God to meet every individual need and that He would be glorified in all that is done.
  • DeQuincy, Louisiana: Pray for the people of DeQuincy. There is just a lot of hurting people after going through two recent hurricanes. Ask God to minister through BG-RRT chaplains and SP volunteers as they reach out to this devastated community.
  • Jennings, Louisiana: Ask God to continue to minister to each homeowner. Pray for one final strong push of volunteers as the deployment prepares to close down the end of the month. Ask God to refresh and strengthen the leadership and pray that the love of Christ will flow afresh through chaplains to this hurting community.
  • Baldwin, Alabama, (Foley), Hurricane Sally Response: Please continue to pray for homeowners as well as BG-RRT coordinators and chaplains as they offer emotional and spiritual care in Foley. Ask God to continue opening doors of opportunity that folks might come to Christ.
  • Military Chaplain Retreat: Lift up military chaplains and their spouses as they go to The Cove at the end of November to be renewed and refreshed as they carry out their calling.

    Potential Storms: Please continue to pray concerning potential upcoming hurricanes. Thank the Lord for His care for us. Pray for mercy and ask Him to keep extreme weather conditions at bay. Since Jesus Himself said, “Peace! Be still!” (Mark 4:39) to the storm—pray for accommodating weather for our land.

    Our Nation: As we find ourselves in unprecedented days in our nation, pray. Ask God to bring healing, unity, and restoration across our land. Pray that officials will legislate according to the Word of God.

    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.

    Thank you for praying!
