Billy Graham Prayer Line

Built on the foundation of the TV Telephone Ministry, the Billy Graham Prayer Line launched in March 2020 to minister to hurting people in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Is God calling you to share the hope of Jesus Christ in these unsettling times? As men and women respond to the Gospel message through TV and radio ads, billboards, the internet, and Billy Graham sermons, their calls are answered by a live voice with the love of Jesus and the hope of salvation.

Prayer Line Volunteer

If you have a heart to point people to Jesus Christ, the Prayer Line offers an incredible opportunity. As a 24/7 Prayer Line volunteer, use your smartphone—and laptop or tablet—to answer and encourage callers from home.

As a frontline ministry volunteer with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, you’ll have an opportunity to pray, offer spiritual encouragement, and share the Gospel with callers from across America.

As Franklin Graham shares the Gospel through national TV ads, he invites viewers to receive Christ. They’re also encouraged to call the Prayer Line and talk to someone about their decision or ask for prayer. That someone could be you!
