franklin graham and BGEA at virginia tech

From :

After visiting Virginia Tech University and meeting with students and families, Franklin Graham is calling on Christians across the country to pray for those affected by the violence.

“I’m asking that this Sunday churches all across the United States pause and pray for the families of these victims, the student body, the faculty, the administration, and the state police. There is so much pain. They need our prayers,” said Graham.
In the days since the attack, they have met and prayed with more than 480 people on the Virginia Tech campus, offering comfort to grieving students and families.
“Our purpose in being here is to bring God’s love, his hope, and his comfort through Jesus Christ. We have experienced, trained volunteer chaplains who are doing just that here at Virginia Tech,” said Graham, who visited the campus this Wednesday. “There’s that initial shock. Those asking, “Why?” There are feelings of hopelessness and anger. Many times those answers are hard to find, but we know we have a loving God who is with us in the midst of a crisis like this.” Listen to a clip now

As you and your church lift the Va. Tech community up in prayer, here are some suggestions.

Please pray:
• That those who are grieving or anxious will look to the God of all comfort for hope and strength in this dark time.
• For physical and emotional healing for all of the wounded.
• That the community of Blacksburg will unite in compassion and fellowship to support and encourage one another.
• That the Lord will be glorified through the efforts of the BGEA Rapid Response Team and other Christian workers.
• That those who are seeking answers will see the truth of the Gospel and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
