rapid response team chaplains praying with woman

Prayers for October 2019:

Tropical Storm Imelda deployment in Vidor and Winnie, Texas: Following the seventh wettest tropical cyclone in U.S. history, Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) chaplains are responding to Vidor and Winnie, Texas. As they offer emotional and spiritual care, ask God to meet every need. Pray for God’s hope to fill these communities and for anxieties to diminish.

Hurricane Dorian deployment in the Bahamas: RRT chaplains are responding in Freeport and 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.

U.S. southern border deployment: RRT chaplains are responding with help and support for a church in one Texas community that is receiving sponsored immigrants. Please pray for the churches and RRT chaplains as they show the love and compassion of Christ to these distraught migrants.

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.

Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar: As Rapid Response Team staff prepares for the upcoming Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar, ask God to ready the hearts of those who will attend this November event. Pray He will use this training to equip attendees to serve family, friends, co-workers and neighbors in personal times of crisis.

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!
