Prayers for February/March 2019:

Billy Graham burial site ministry of presence: As BGEA commemorates the one-year anniversary of Billy Graham’s death, RRT chaplains continue to offer a ministry of presence at his gravesite on the grounds of the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. Recognizing this is a memorial site where people come to pay their respects and mourn Mr. Graham’s passing, RRT chaplains are there to listen and pray for the individual needs of those who stop by. Thank you for praying for this outreach effort.

Aurora, Illinois, shooting response: Rapid Response Team chaplains are deployed to Aurora, Illinois, following the shooting that killed five individuals and injured five law enforcement officers. Please pray for those who are grieving. Lift up those who are injured and need healing. Pray for God to use RRT chaplains as they offer the hope only found in Christ.

Butte County, California: Please pray for those in Butte County who have experienced tremendous loss. Ask the Lord to meet their every need. Please pray for Samaritan’s Purse volunteers, Rapid Response Team chaplains and local churches as they work to offer the love and compassion of Christ in these difficult times.

Hurricane Michael: Pray for those in the Southeast who continue to suffer the effects of Hurricane Michael. Ask God to comfort those who are grieving and pray for physical, emotional and spiritual needs to be met. Pray for RRT chaplains as they offer help and support through the love of Christ to those in Panama City, Florida.

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 stabilize the weather patterns and keep extreme weather conditions at bay. Since Jesus Himself said, “Peace! Be still!” (Mark 4:39) to the storm, pray for accommodating weather. Thank Him for taking care of our every need.

Recent disasters: Lift up those affected by man-made and natural disasters in recent weeks and months. Ask God to comfort and encourage those enduring emotional and physical stress. Pray for His work to be accomplished in individual lives as He tenderly cares for them.

Thank you for praying!
