Faith in Motion

Dear Prayer Warrior,

  It’s been two weeks since the National Day of Prayer. As I began praying along with others in the National Prayer Room, I felt rejuvenated in my zeal for pursuing God’s Will for my life. We streamed 426 hours of member prayers as all 50 states tuned in. Over a quarter of a million people joined us online that day, and countless more in churches and events across the nation. Seeing so many lifting their voices to our Heavenly Father was a good reminder that God is in control of our country and future. God is good and we are truly blessed!

  If you were one of the many who participated, we invite you to take our short survey on our National Day of Prayer guides. Please let us know your thoughts so that we can provide the best resources to you each year.

“This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.” 2 Samuel 22:31

   We are officially less than six months away from the national election and we are turning our full attention toward Pray the Vote. The staff has already been preparing as we will be guiding on important issues and key needs for the 2024 elections.

   If you have not given before, or maybe it has been a while, now is a great time because the month of May is historically a slower month for donations. Perhaps the busyness of school years coming to a close, planning ahead for the summer, or maybe Memorial Day escapes, we get it, life gets busy. But pause now and prayerfully consider helping us with a gift as we continue our work serving you and this country for prayer and help us prepare our nation for Pray the Vote!

   Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement. God bless.

  Jim Bolthouse

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).

A: If you are signed up to receive daily and/or weekly emails from the prayer team, those will continue with no interruption.
