Rebuilding One Nation Under God

Dear Prayer Warrior,

  Nehemiah was a man with a vision to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem that had been destroyed by the enemies of God’s people. He faced ridicule, threats, lies, and conspiracies. But he did not give up. In the face of opposition, he turned to prayer and asked God for guidance and protection, and he mobilized the people to work together with courage and faith.

“O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name.” Nehemiah 1:11

  Today, the walls of morality and biblical teaching are falling in our country, and like Nehemiah, we must turn to God in prayer as we seek to rebuild them. We will face opposition, but we must pray together with courage and faith, and ask for guidance, wisdom, and peace.

  God has blessed the United States, but not every step this nation has taken has been to God’s glory. The Presidential Prayer Team began 22 years ago, accepting the charge to equip believers to pray for our nation and its leaders. Together, you and many across the nation have become—and remain—the single greatest daily spiritual prayer community of the 21st Century.

  Nehemiah’s story teaches us that nothing is impossible with God. He will use ordinary people to do extraordinary things for His glory. He can turn our challenges into opportunities, so let us be inspired and motivated by Nehemiah’s example as God is calling you and me to be valiant and faithful prayer warriors in Christ!

   You have the opportunity to be counted as one of the mighty, who is part of steering the nation back to the Lord. Our commitment to you is to continually provide you with topical prayer points, information, and resources that encourage you to pray. We do all this knowing that “the prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16).

   The ability to equip this praying force across America also requires a commitment of financial resources from our members. Right now, every gift we receive is matched dollar-for-dollar. We are behind on our goal and, as you are able, you can help us stand among the mighty as we continue to be a voice for truth and biblical values in America, all for the glory of God, when you GIVE NOW.

   From myself, our Board of Directors, and our staff, thank you, mighty warrior! We pray with you and for you. May God bless you in the new year.

  Jim Bolthouse
  President

P.S. As the election season nears, we as a prayer team will begin our own campaign to prayerfully seek out men and women of God to lead this nation. With this opportunity, we can hold fast to our national credence of “One Nation Under God.”
