Preparing for Prayer

Dear Prayer Warrior,

  I just finished an interview with a Christian radio network and spoke with them about the National Day of Prayer coming on May 4th. Here at the prayer team, this is one of our favorite times of the year because it brings us closer to you, our praying members. We get to hear your voices and read your prayers as we come together as a free nation. Together, we fall upon our knees and lift our leaders and the needs of our country before almighty God.

  From a simple online prayer rally in 2002, we have been blessed to grow and now be able to present a full multimedia event for you and other prayer warriors across America. This year’s online presentation will include:

  • National Prayer Video Broadcast
  • National Interactive Prayer Room
  • Guided Audio Prayer for our National Leaders
  • Leadership Prayer Checklist
  • Exclusive interview with prayer team president Jim Bolthouse on Mars Hill Radio Network
  • Printable Prayer Guide (PDF)
  • Streaming Prayers of Members Across America on IPrayRadio

  Signups are open to reserve time slots in the prayer room as we strive to completely cover our nation with a blanket of continual prayers ALL DAY (30 hours across six U.S. times zones). Reserve your time slot now!

  We hope you will join us and invite your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and church. See you in the prayer room!

  Jim Bolthouse

P.S. Due to the economic conditions that are affecting many, we too are facing higher costs. For the second consecutive month, we are falling behind in meeting our budgeted needs. We seek to be transparent with you—as a prayer member—of our actual needs, and we ask that you join us in praying for God’s provisions at this time. The weight of the need to encourage prayer is ever more apparent today. We hope you will pray for us and our vital role of continuing to highlight prayer needs, deliver devotions and national updates, and provide special events like the National Day of Prayer, to millions of Americans. As of publishing this, we are just under 64% of our monthly need for April. If you are able, please prayerfully consider giving today. Thank you, and God bless.
