Prayer Precedes November Outreach

In 2002, My Hope began as a ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) to take the gospel into areas of the world where Billy Graham could not physically travel. Ten years and 57 countries later, My Hope with Billy Graham has become a grassroots evangelistic movement spreading across the United States and Canada that will culminate the week of Mr. Graham’s 95th birthday—Nov. 7, 2013.

My Hope with Billy Graham is built on “Matthew and Friends,” which draws its inspiration from the biblical account of Matthew (Matt. 9:9–13, Luke 5:27–31). When Jesus called Matthew to follow Him, Matthew threw a party and invited people to his home to meet Jesus. Likewise, “Matthew” hosts participating in My Hope will invite people to their homes to meet Jesus as they watch a unique 30-minute presentation from Billy Graham, featuring culturally relevant music, testimonies, and a gospel message.

“My Hope has been used in many countries and hundreds of thousands of people have received Christ as Savior,” says Billy Graham. “I’ve been praying that we might have a spiritual awakening. But I think that becomes possible as individuals surrender their lives fresh and anew to Christ. And that’s the hope that we have.”

As with previous Billy Graham crusades, this project is built on prayer. This spring, church leaders across the nation have been attending meetings, praying and preparing to engage their churches in the project. Christians across the U.S. and Canada will begin creating a list of their friends, family, and neighbors who need to know Jesus. They will begin praying by name for these individuals and seeking opportunities to build their relationships with them before inviting them into their homes for the presentation in November.

Christian ministries are joining forces with the BGEA to undergird this effort in prayer. The hope is for revival in the churches and a great harvest of souls this fall. For more information or to register, visit
