Endings and Beginnings

Dear Prayer Warrior,

  We have been blessed throughout this year with your gifts and prayers. As 2023 comes quickly to an end, we praise God for allowing us to serve you for another year. We know that 2024 is going to be important, and we pray for a transformation of hearts across the nation in the new year.

“And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.” Ezekiel 11:19-20

  The Presidential Prayer Team is unlike any other. It is the most effective, efficient, and largest full-time prayer ministry for our country, reaching more people with less cost than most other ministries as we wisely and efficiently put to good use your spiritual investment dollars. Because you are a trusted friend of this ministry, we want to remind you that your investment can reach even further as it’s matched dollar-for-dollar, right now.

  Some friends of this ministry have gotten together to match all one-time gifts or monthly gifts. Right now, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by these generous friends. But this offer is only good for 3 more days until midnight, December 31… so you need to act now!

Your donation helps us cover our four primary operational costs:

  • Our website and email servers, which we 100% independently maintain
  • Security monitoring to protect from hacking and digital attacks
  • Building maintenance and electricity
  • Feeding our writers, staff, and their families

   Since 2001, we have been there every day providing you and millions of others with informational prayer needs, prayer leadership, resources, and encouragement. We hope that we can count on you to faithfully support us with your best one-time gift or monthly faith commitment. When you give, you’ll know that you are equipping us to undergird the leaders of our country with a firm foundation of prayer, which is needed more than ever during these critical days in our nation.

   Faithfully yours through Christ,

  Jim Bolthouse
  President

P.S. Thank you to so many who have already given at this time. Including our faithful “Watchmen” who give every month and provide the fortification we need to make it through each year. Monthly giving is one of the easiest ways to stay connected to us throughout the year, and is also included in our match, which will cover all of 2024.





The 2023 Year-End Matching Challenge has concluded.

Thank you to everyone who contributed and helped us reach 75.3% of our goal! Any remaining phone, mail, and web donations will be counted toward the final match as we process them this coming week. We are exceptionally blessed by everyone who has prayed for us and those who have selflessly been able to contribute. You can still give any time. Your prayers and generosity are appreciated.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. – Ephesians 6:12

Key Questions and Answers

Q: Who can join?
A. You and everyone who prays! We encourage you to invite family, friends, and church members to join. They can text INFO to 772911 for full information. (U.S. and Canadian cell phone numbers only at this time.)

Q: Does this work on any smart device or phone?
A: Pray First will work with any registered phone device that has a 10-digit number (U.S. and Canada with active SIM/eSIM). It is not compatible with third-party messaging systems that do not require a phone number. This allows us to use the largest text messaging providers for near-instant sending, to reach millions of cell phone across the country.

Q: When can I expect my first text message?
A: You will receive an immediate response confirming that you are now a Prayer First Responder. Regular text notifications will begin early October when the system goes live.

Q: What should I do when I receive a message?
A: When a prayer text message arrives on your phone, take the matter before the Lord. You will be joining a vast community of prayer warriors who received the same message and praying with you at the same time.

Q: What if I prefer to receive email?
A: If you are signed up to receive daily and/or weekly emails from the prayer team, those will continue with no interruption. This is simply a new service aimed at providing timely prayer needs to your fingertips as quickly and effectively as possible. Email can sometimes be slowed by service providers, or even blocked, and this service will ensure unfiltered delivery.

Q: How often will I get a text message?
A: You may receive 1 or 2 per week, with up to 8 messages per month. Messages will be limited to local daytime hours.

Q: Are there any fees? 
A: This is a free service for all who participate, and most cell phone providers offer free texting. We trust God’s people will see the impact value this service and support our costs – as they have over the past 22 years.

Q: What if I need to stop for any reason?
A: You can opt-out at any time by simply replying STOP to 772911. And you can rejoin again later at your convenience.
