Prayers for January 2020:

Thank you dear friends for your prayers for the ministry of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. Your prayer efforts are so appreciated.

I have not stopped giving thanks for you…” —Ephesians 1:16

Desoto County, Mississippi: Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT) chaplains are deploying to DeSoto County, Mississippi, alongside Samaritan’s Purse after Winter Storm Isaiah left devastation in its wake over the weekend. Chaplains are expected to arrive in the area on Monday. Please pray for this hurting community and for those who are grieving loss of loved ones. Ask God to meet each individual need.

Australian wildfires: Ask God to protect and minister to those in Australia during a difficult wildfire season. Please pray for rain.

Franklin Graham’s Decision America Sunshine State Tour: The Decision America Tour is off to a great start with more than 17,000 people in attendance at the first two stops. The tour will conclude January 19 in Fort Myers. As Franklin Graham shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ, please pray for these one-day outreaches. Ask God to draw many to Himself.

Hurricane Dorian deployment in the Bahamas: RRT chaplains continue to minister in Man-O-War Cay, Bahamas, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. Ask God to comfort all those mourning and bearing such tragic loss. Pray for first responders as they continue to serve their communities through unimaginable circumstances. Ask God to minister through chaplains, as well as the church.

Billy Graham burial site ministry of presence: RRT chaplains continue to offer a ministry of presence at Mr. Graham’s 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, 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.

Rockport/Pearland, Texas, rebuild ministry: RRT chaplains are working alongside Samaritan’s Purse (SP) rebuild teams in Rockport and Pearland, Texas, offering a ministry of presence to homeowners and SP volunteers and staff. Please pray for homeowners, asking God to minister to them as they wait for the completion of their homes. Ask God to protect the worksites. Lift up RRT chaplains as they offer help and support to this vital ministry.

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.

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!
