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

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Passing: In response to the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, BG-RRT chaplains deployed to London’s Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. Please continue to pray for those grieving and ask God to draw them into a closer relationship with Him. Lift up those who have made a spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ. Ask God to build their faith and open doors of discipleship.

Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico: Please pray for all those in Puerto Rico as Hurricane Fiona swept through the region and caused significant damage. Ask to Lord to bring help and hope to the people on the island.

Kentucky Flooding Response: The BG-RRT is deployed to Floyd County and Breathitt County, Kentucky, following historic flash flooding. Please ask God to minister in this unprecedented time to those who have had their loved ones and homes swept away in floodwaters. Lift up BG-RRT chaplains as they carry the light of Christ into these devastated parts of Kentucky. Pray that the love and compassion of Christ will be felt and experienced by all grieving such great loss.

St. Louis, Missouri, Flooding Response: As BG-RRT chaplains minister alongside Samaritan’s Purse in flooded St. Louis County, Missouri, pray for wisdom and discernment on how to best serve those who are suffering great loss. Ask God to use chaplains as they offer emotional and spiritual care to those hurting.

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 as they share with local chaplains how to facilitate God’s Hope in Crisis trainings for Christians in the area that they might encourage and point all who are suffering in the current crisis situation to Jesus Christ as their hope for the future.

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 (cf. John 10:10), and that the main focus will be upon 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 (cf. Ephesians 3:20), and can bring blessing and a restored future.

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 all our needs.

COVID-19 Pandemic Concerns: Pray for cessation of COVID-19 and the fear associated with this virus. Ask Him to heal all affected and stop the virus from spreading.

Law Enforcement Officers Nationwide: Please lift up all law enforcement officers across the nation and ask the Lord to minister to each of them individually. Pray for their protection and that God would give them wisdom and discernment as they face various situations. Lift up their families and ask God to protect the home of each officer. Ask the Lord to encourage them and give them strength to serve in their calling as law enforcement officers. Thank God with us for those who are willing to be the thin blue line to protect our communities.

Thank you for praying!
