Urgent Prayer Alert for the U.K.

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Franklin Graham, son of the famous Evangelist Billy Graham, appealed to Christians with the following prayer need:


For the last two years we have been preparing to go to the United Kingdom and take the Gospel to eight different cities starting in Scotland, going down to Wales, and finishing up in London. As we move closer to these events in late May and June, we are experiencing opposition from LGBTQ activists who want to stop this Gospel work. This small but vocal minority is pressuring venues to back out of our contracts because I have said that God defines homosexuality as sin. Several venues have already told us that they are canceling.

Much prayer and effort has been put into this, and hundreds of churches across the U.K. are partnering in this tour. This is spiritual warfare. The enemy does not want the Gospel proclaimed.

Will you pray with us that God will keep the doors open to preach the Good News across the U.K. this spring? The Bible says “the prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16, ESV). I believe this is a defining moment for the church in the U.K., and Jesus Christ is the only hope for change.

You and I have been called for such a moment as this. Please join me in praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ there, that God will remove obstacles to this Gospel work, and that He will prepare the hearts of people across the nation to hear and respond to His message this spring. Thank you for standing faithfully for Jesus Christ. May God richly bless you,

Franklin Graham
