BGEA’s Prayer Line Sees Rise in Calls Amid Fear Over Coronavirus and Other Current Events

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s prayer phone line has received 1,000 calls every day since its creation in March 2020 in response to COVID-19 and the lockdowns, said its assistant director Jonathan Edwards.

Most people call the prayer line because they’re afraid and worried about current events, said Edwards, who manages the prayer line for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in an interview with The Christian Post. Call numbers rose rapidly at the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdowns. They’ve started rising again at the beginning of January.

Right now, the phone line receives 200 more calls than usual every day, he said. Call numbers get even higher after the Rev. Franklin Graham appears on television.
