Dr. Billy Graham Was an Answer to prayer

“In the spring of 1934, Billy Graham’s father allowed a group of Charlotte businessmen to use a portion of the family’s dairy farm to gather for a day of prayer. On that day, the men prayed for the city.  They prayed that, ‘Out of Charlotte, the Lord would raise up someone to preach the Gospel to the ends of the Earth.’ We are here today, more than 80 years later, because that prayer was truly answered. Billy Graham was 15 years old at the time.  Just a few months later, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. That choice didn’t just change Billy’s life — it changed our lives.  It changed our country, and it changed, in fact, the entire world.” (President Donald J. Trump at the U.S. Capitol, as Dr. Billy Graham lay in honor.)1

“You may say there are still four months until harvest time. But I tell you to look, and you will see that the fields are ripe and ready to harvest.” (John 4:35; CEV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Prayer changes things! God answers prayers that align with His plan and His Word. Shake any doubt and belief off yourself! Don’t listen to the devil – pray!

  2. Call forth those that will “preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth!”

  3. Gather with others you can pray with on a regular basis. Start a group, if there is none in your area.

  4. Look for daily opportunities to share Jesus with others. You never know who the next Billy grahams will be.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Satan has done a great job of making us think our prayers don’t count, aren’t heard, won’t be answered, etc., etc. Break any doubt and unbelief off me and off Your Church. We have work to do! The harvest is sitting out there ready, and ready or not, we must get out there into it. I call forth all of those called to preach the Gospel to the whole earth! I ask You to mantle us with a Billy-Graham, fearless mantle, to share Jesus with everyone we meet. I long to pray with others and see our prayers answered. Show me whom I can share Jesus with today, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The world has never seen the mighty army of evangelists about to hit the scene.
