Thank you for joining me for Prayer in Every City Friday. This year I want to support Franklin Graham and our nation in prayer. Franklin Graham will be traveling to all 50 states to promote prayer on his Decision America Tour 2016, encourage Christians to run for office and vote. Every Friday, we will meet here to pray for the states he has visited that week or the weeks to come. If you have come to pray, then please leave you prayer request for the nation. These are not prayer requests for personal needs, but requests for our nation to turn back to God.
Franklin Graham took the month of July off from the Decision America Tour. This week he started his tour again with the states of Montana and Idaho and Wyoming.
Helena, Montana – 2,700
Boise, Idaho – 3,800
Cheyenne, Wyoming – 2,400
For a grand total of 159,850 in 33 states.
Last week, Franklin visited Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. There were no visits this week, but next week he will visit Maine, Vermont and New York.
Please pray the following:
We praise You, LORD God our rock and our fortress. You are gracious, merciful, slow to anger and great in lovingkindness.
- We pray You will forgive our nation for not following Your ways. Please forgive us for acting arrogantly, disobediently and stiff necked.
- We pray for the people in Maine, which is one of the least religious states in America, with 31% reporting as atheist, agnostic, or of no faith.*
- Please forgive the people in Vermont for being apathetic to You. With 59% of the population being unchurched and most of the population believing they have no responsibility to evangelize. Raise up some strong believers to share their faith in this state.*
- We pray for the numerous church-planting efforts happening in New York City. Please send believers with Your truth to this state. We pray for improved race relations and that God’s people will continue to reach out to gang members and those who remain in poverty.*
We pray all these things in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
