Severe Weather Response

Dear Friend,

The spring of 2019 has produced many devastating weather occurances. Storms have caused massive damage and flooding, with many people have lost everything. They desperately need your prayers.
 
Chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team have comforted and prayed with survivors of these storms and first responders at these scenes. We want people to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them. Pray also for the emergency personnel and the chaplains as they work long hours to care for those who are suffering.

Nearly three years ago I joined thousands of people at the capitol in Jefferson City during the Decision America Tour. We prayed for their community, state, and our nation, and I shared the Gospel message. Today, will you pray for those affected by severe storms?

Thank you for your heart to bring the peace of God to those who are “troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us…” (2 Corinthians 7:5,6).

May God richly bless you,

Franklin Graham
 

P.S. God uses your prayers and gifts to change countless lives with the hope of Jesus Christ, and this ministry would not be possible without friends like you. Thank you for your “partnership in the Gospel”.

Pray for America

Dear Friends Praying for America,

I believe America needs prayer this month. Right now, determine to be faithful to pray for our nation during February.

Please share these requests with anyone who loves America. 

People are hurting in America. Let’s pray for divine intervention in the present governmental crisis in America. Are you ready to go to God in prayer? Prioritize these requests during February.

Now is the Time to Lead and to Pray for America,

Ronnie W. Floyd

1. Ask God to lead our president and members of both houses of Congress to find a way to work together and avoid another shutdown of the American government.

“And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.” Jeremiah 29:7

  • Sovereign God, please guide the heart of the president and members of both houses of Congress to come together to find a common resolution for the border crisis and funding of the United States government.
  • Holy Spirit, would You build within the president and members of Congress a spirit of humility, respect for one another, a spirit of understanding, and a determination to cooperate for the common good of America.
  • Our Father in Heaven, would you bring peace within the relationships among the members of Congress and the president and his entire team so they can reach a solution to this crisis by February 15.
  • May each person seek the peace and prosperity of America, knowing when they do, each of them prospers.
  • God our Provider, please take care of the many government workers and their families who endured a financial setback during the most recent shutdown of the government.

2. Call out to God for families, workplaces, communities, and cities in America to love one another.

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7

  • When we belong to Jesus, we belong to love; therefore, call upon God for families, workplaces, communities, and cities in America to know that love is always God’s way.
  • Call families, workplaces, communities, and cities to look to God, who is love, so they can experience the transforming power of love.
  • Ask God for America’s families, workplaces, communities, and cities to begin to choose love and forgiveness, love and restitution, love and healing, love and unity, and a future transformed by the power of unconditional love.
  • Ask God to raise up a Love One Another movement across America.

3. Appeal to God to mobilize leaders of towns and cities, as well as leaders of churches, businesses, schools, and denominations to have a prayer observance for America on Thursday, May 2, 2019.

“And a new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” John 13:34

  • Lord, we call upon You to mobilize leaders of towns and cities, as well as leaders of churches, businesses, schools, and denominations to have a prayer observance on the National Day of Prayer and focus on the theme LOVE ONE ANOTHER. 
  • Oh God, we ask You to create and build a mighty force of volunteers across the country to do all they can to insure we have thousands of prayer observances across America in all kinds of settings on the National Day of Prayer.
  • Holy Spirit, lead Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, as well as all of the staff and volunteers to do what they can to lead this national prayer movement to pray for America.

How Important is Prayer to You?

     Why should it take a bad diagnosis, a major business loss, or a big problem to move prayer up in our daily action plan? How important is prayer to you?

     I believe now is the time to find a way to bring prayer back into our personal lives.

 

3 Things That Happen When We Pray

 

1. We are depending on God.

When we do not pray, we are depending on ourselves.

Pray like it really matters in your life. Pray daily. Pray continually.

Bring prayer back into your life.

 

2. We are walking in faith.

     Praying is faith. When we pray, we are declaring absolute dependence on the Lord and walking by faith in God alone.

     When we pray, we are trusting in the Lord completely. When we pray with another person, our faith increases. So, does our expectancy.

 

3. We are acting upon God’s Word.

When we pray anywhere about anything, we are acting upon God’s Word.

That is why prayer is our greatest action. But always remember, prayer moves us to action.

 

This Is Why ---

  • We pray because we depend on God.
  • We pray because we want to walk by faith.
  • We pray because we are acting upon God’s Word.

 

Is prayer important enough to you to do it daily?

 

Now is the Time to Lead, Dr. Ronnie Floyd,
