University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) and Mooresville, North Carolina, officer shooting: Please continue to lift up the families who lost loved ones in the UNCC school shooting, as well as the community of Mooresville, North Carolina, following a shooting that claimed the life of one law enforcement officer.

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.

Billy Graham burial site ministry of presence: 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.

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 all on the worksites. Lift up RRT chaplains as they offer help and support to this vital ministry.

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.

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.
