praying togetherAs many Christians across America fear the possibility of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reversing the numerous gains President Donald Trump has made for biblical values – if the progressive leader takes over the White House in January – more than 2 million instances of people listening in and praying along on to lift up America’s leaders and future were reported by the Presidential Prayer Team.

A central topic of prayer over the past few weeks on has concentrated on the process, integrity and outcome of the presidential election, with more than 88,000 Presidential Prayer Team members pledging to pray a minimum of 10 minutes daily to encourage millions of Americans.

Being the first fulltime prayer feature of its kind, this prayer movement takes place around-the-clock giving Americans with any kind of schedule from coast to coast the opportunity to tune in to and pray along with its members for America’s leaders – and draw closer to God.

Praying for America … rain or shine

As the largest fulltime prayer movement for America and its leaders, the Presidential Prayer Team – a nonpartisan, nonprofit group founded in 2001 – has faithfully prayed for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, as well as for former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

Regardless of who God has leading the country, the team is dedicated to encourage and facilitate prayer for the nation’s president, political leaders and military leaders in order to transform America into a nation that follows and honors God.

"After listening to thousands of prayers from across the nation, I hear consistent themes for truth and love for our country,” Presidential Prayer Team President James Bolthouse expressed in his group’s press release. “We believe that God directs the prayers of His people, and through this, we can perhaps gain insight into God's plans and purposes for America.”

Bolthouse – whose ministry is based in Scottsdale, Arizona – is encouraged by the collective desire of those involved in the movement to humbly surrender to God and ask for His forgiveness on behalf of the nation.

“Many prayers also include a call for repentance in asking for God's will to be done in our country for His glory, and that our leaders will stay true to godly principles consistent with His own character – as He has revealed it in His Word, the Bible,” Bolthouse continued. “It is a truly moving and spiritual experience listening to God's people pouring their hearts out – hearing that we are never alone – and I encourage all believers to join us in prayer."
