Call2Fall and Franklin Graham Presidential Prayer Appeal
June 01, 2019
Dear Praying Friends,
Today I am writing to Pastors, Prayer Movement Leaders, and Intercessors across America with two special requests. June will be an important prayer month for churches, Christian ministries and families that value united, corporate prayer. When we humble ourselves and join our hearts and hands together to pray for what we know to be God’s will, God promises to act on our behalf (Mt 18:19; 1 Jn 5:14-15; Acts 12:5).
I am writing to ask you to lead your church and/or Christian network to participate in two urgent prayer initiatives:
This coming Sunday, June 2nd -- Rev. Franklin Graham has appealed to all Americans with ears to hear to pray for President Trump. Paul instructed Timothy (1 Tim 2:1-2) that such prayer was a priority in the church, and urged him to lead his flock to do this “first of all.” When God’s people come together across a nation and agree in prayer for what God declares to be His will, there is power in that prayer. Please join us in responding to Rev. Graham’s appeal by leading your people in humble prayer for our president this Sunday. (Hear Graham’s appeal; Read his statement, signed by 300 faith leaders from across America; Listen to his interview with Tony Perkins earlier this week)
And while you are thinking and planning for this, please begin to make plans for Call2Fall on Sunday, June 30, 2019. This will bookend the month of June, first with prayer for the president, then on the last Sunday of the month before America’s Birthday, the 4th of July, prayer for the American people and our nation. Please prepare your people for both of these important united-prayer undertakings.

I will write next week with more about Call2Fall with links to resources you can use on your web page, social media, and email to help your folks get the word out. Urge them to take advantage of their own social media. And please add your own note of encouragement on Call2Fall’s Facebook page. Invite folks to join you for Call2Fall on Sunday, June 30th.
Please hurry and let everyone know about Franklin Graham’s request. On Sunday, let’s pray for our president with faith, fervor, expectation, and power that God will hear us and mightily help the president amid the hostility and enable him to do great things for the American people. Let’s pray, too, for his relationship with the Lord, for his family, and for all his angry adversaries.
Thanks & God bless,
Rev. Pierre Bynum
