Franklin Graham has a heart for focused prayer in preparation for evangelism—and we are thankful for friends like you who share that passion. We know that you care deeply for people to know the hope found in Jesus Christ alone—and we want to give you a prayer resource as together we lift our nation up to the Lord in prayer.

You’re invited to join believers across Canada May 18-22 for a week of focused and passionate prayer for the ministry God puts before us. Below you will find daily prayer themes to guide you as you pray for God’s Kingdom work, for your loved ones who need Jesus, and for our country.

Will you pray for the Good News of Jesus Christ to be known across our nation?

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

Tuesday

Pray for our government and leaders.

  • Pray that our leaders would make God-honoring decisions and acknowledge their role as under God’s authority.

  • Pray for Christians to exercise their right and responsibility to vote as part of their stand for truth.

Friday

Pray for our nation as we deal with the effects of COVID-19

  • Prayer for healing for those that are afflicted, for our front-line workers and that there would be an end to COVID-19.
  • Pray for those who will be touched by the ministry work of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada, specifically those calling for prayer and searching for answers on peacewithgod.net.

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.”
