5 Ways to Pray for the Billy Graham Library

August 26, 2017

Categories: Prayer


At the Billy Graham Library, we begin our days with prayer. Before guests even arrive, our volunteers pray over each and every visitor that will enter through the doors—that they will have an encounter with Christ.

As we continue our prayer ministry, we would be honored if you—our online guests—will allow us to pray for you. Share your requests in the comments below. (All comments are reviewed before they appear online, so if you’d like them to remain anonymous, you can indicate “PRIVATE” at the beginning of your comment, or simply state “unspoken prayer.”)

We also covet your prayers. Here are five ways you could pray for the Billy Graham Library:

  • Please pray that guests would see “darkness passing away, and the true light already shining” through Jesus at the cross-shaped doorway into the Library (1 John 2:8, NKJV).
  • Please pray that the Lord would make the Library a place where all nations and peoples can become one family because “God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, has given us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18, NKJV).
  • Please ask the Father to open the door for men, veterans, teachers and pastors who will be attending our upcoming events to “acquaint themselves with Him, and be at peace” (Job 22:21, NKJV).
  • As our volunteers share the “Steps to Peace with God,” please ask the Holy Spirit to create in them a spiritual host of “peacemakers … called sons of God” (Matthew 5:9, NKJV).
  • As the Lord carries us through a time of transition, please ask the Holy Spirit, to give the Library staff “tranquil hearts that give life to the flesh” (Proverbs 14:30, ESV).

    I have degenerative disk disease & have had 2 failed lower back surgeries fused S1 – L1 2 foot long titanium rods & 12 screws and need upper back surgery fusion for C3-C7. I am eat up with arthritis especially bad in both shoulders. I am in severe pain constantly & cannot sleep well for hurting so much. I don’t know how to pray about this any longer. It seems God’s answer is to bear it. Please tell me how I should ask God to help me. I always praise God and thank him I am here to go through this and pray for others. I need some guidance. And prayer. Thank you for listening…..Daniel

    We had the privilege of visiting the Billy Graham Library the first year that it was open. We have followed Billy Graham’s ministry for decades and have been blessed to be in attendance at his crusades three times.

    God had indeed blessed the Graham family by allowing the ministry to continue with Franklin and Will and Anne and the Cove and Samaritans Purse and on and on. Millions and millions of people across the globe have been lead to Christ through these ministries.

    Many blessings and wishes for good health and safety in travel.

Please pray for God to heal Todd and take this cancer from him. Please pray for God to take away any suffering and pain. Please pray for me and my husband, that we have the strength to make it thru this terrible time, and accept whatever will be God’s will not ours.

    I pray that when all people that enter the library doors that they feel the love and presence of Jesus and crave for his wisdom to lean on him in every situation and to lift up his name in all things. I pray that the lord gives Dr Graham physical comfort and I want to thank Jesus for giving us a godly man to spread his word all over the world. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
