Veterans Chaplaincy -  "Thou mighty man of Valor"

Please pray for hurricane Florence victims

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear …”
— Psalm 46:1–2, ESV

Dear Friend,

Franklin Graham
 While most of Florence has moved on from the Carolinas, her destructive force is still being felt across these two states. Entire communities are under water, and there are reports of harrowing rescues as flooding continues. Once the waters recede and the roads reopen, many people will return home to find they’ve lost everything.

They need your prayers.

Please pray that God will comfort them in their suffering, give strength to first responders, utility workers, and volunteers, and draw many people to His Son, Jesus Christ.

Will you also pray for our Rapid Response Team? We’ve deployed teams of chaplains to hard-hit areas to minister in Jesus’ Name and offer emotional and spiritual care to victims and first responders.

Thank you for your heart to reach hurting people with the Good News of God’s love.

May God richly bless you,

Franklin Graham

"On the morning of September 11 2001, 2,976 people from 93 nations lost their lives in New York, at the Pentagon, and on Flight 93.

Today, we pause to remember that moment of horror and pray for those left scarred by those terrible events."

We remember the first time we heard the news.
We recall the first time we saw those images.
We remember the way our thoughts
and prayers were with those families who lost loved ones.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them again today.

O God of Comfort - though the years have passed, you are faithful still.
Jesus Christ the same*
Yesterday, today and forever; let your love and peace endure.

We remember those who survived.
We remember that you are a God of redemption and restoration.
Help us forgive those who caused so much trauma,
and that we may find release in that forgiveness.

Yesterday, today and forever; let your love and peace endure.*

We remember that you love the world.
We recall you sent your Son to bring reconciliation and salvation.
We remember your Spirit inhabits your Church.
Help us bring your comfort and peace to all. O God of hope

Yesterday, today and forever; let your love and peace endure.*

National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer, May 3rd.
This Thursday, May 3, is the National Day of Prayer. It will be the 30th annual observance since President Ronald Reagan signed the amended law designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer, and the 67th observance since the day was first created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.



HE IS RISEN ! . . . . .

Mark 16:

6 . . , Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Yours in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,
