Pray the Vote is a ministry of The Presidential Prayer Team. Available each election season.

Primaries for the 2022 midterm elections have already begun in some states and candidates are on the campaign trail. As America prepares to vote, how will you be praying for the nation?

Each election cycle, The Presidential Prayer Team calls for prayer over the election through Pray the Vote 2022. It is imperative that God’s people pray for our current and future leaders, and that we vote. Each vote matters and as you prepare for this election, we welcome you to Pray the Vote 2022.

Find helpful voting resources for your state, including primary and midterm election dates and voter registration information and deadlines.

Across the coming days and weeks, more will come to this important website, and we encourage you to visit often and pray with us.

Today’s Prayer and Encouragement:

Prayer by Jim Bolthouse, president of The Presidential Prayer Team

  • Activism

    Keep in step with God’s Word

    Psalm 97:10 – O you who love the Lord, hate evil!

    Are you called to be an activist?  Maybe you attend pro-life marches, or perhaps you advocate for foster children. Maybe you’ve involved yourself on one side of the other over support for law enforcement. Or you could be actively involved in the election challenges. Whatever you do, if you do these things, be sure you have covered yourself first with a clear understanding of God’s will for you and what His Word has to say.

    Proverbs 6:16-19 says, “There are six things that the Lord hates; seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” Proverbs 8:13 says, “The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.”

    God does require certain things from you: that you do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with Him (Micah 6:8);  You must not mistreat any widow or fatherless child (Exodus 22:22); you should bear evidence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23); and above all love Him and your neighbor.  Then you will actively rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances.  These are the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

    Pray With Us

    Heavenly Father, slow me down! So much has happened this year that has my emotions on edge, and I feel like I want to “do” something. My tendency is to latch on to an activity that may be worthwhile, but that has no advantage to advancing Your Kingdom here on the Earth.  Take the anxiety about the future from my mind, and let me rest at Your feet, drawn more into Your Word and into prayer. You know what is best for me and what Your plans are for this nation and our leaders. You have told me to submit to that authority, and at the same time be ready for whatever good work You assign to me. Take my urges toward activism, and make them stronger in following You. I pray it in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    • Confess if the worries of this world have taken you off the path God has designed for you.
    • Ask the Holy Spirit to nudge you when you are taking your focus off the things that God desires from His people.
    • Take the time to double-check your political or social activism against what the Bible says.
    • Ask God to make you more sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
    • Practice random acts of kindness; do one today.

Pray the Vote Challenge

Perhaps now more than any other time in our 244-year history, America is teetering on a precipice. Over the last few months we have seen chaos and unrest turn friend against friend and split families apart. These deep divisions are trying to take our focus away from God’s truth.

What can you do? Pray. Intercede for America and its leaders. Each prayer adds more threads to a great magnificent prayer blanket to cover the nation. Seek God’s provision and guidance over the United States, every state and county, every city, every church, every home and every polling place this election season. God can heal the hearts of this great nation, we have but to ask.

Today, answer the challenge and be part of this great prayer covering!

Accepted the Challenge

faithful Americans and prayer team members who have accepted the challenge to pray daily for the election and our leaders.

Final 10 days of prayer ahead of the election starts Sunday, October 25. Join us in 10 minutes of prayer each day as we cover America and the election in prayer.

I will pray daily for America. I will pray daily for the 2020 election. I will pray daily for God’s will to be done in the United States of America. I believe that God has called us to this responsibility. And I will encourage others to pray as I am able.

Pray the Vote

Sunday, October 25, through Tuesday, November 3rd.

Pray with us in the lead-up to the elections. We, as a nation, prepare to vote in the coming elections and we remain faithful to His calling and continue to pray for our existing and new leaders.

This nationwide movement is based on the knowledge that when God’s people cry out to Him in earnest and heartfelt prayer, He will bless us and our nation in ways we cannot foresee. Our prayers open a window for God to work across our land. Your prayers will change the world.

Pray with us…

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your continued grace and mercy and for blessing the United States of America. As many across the country head to the polls, we ask for Your wisdom and guidance as the nation votes. We pray that Your will is accomplished through our actions and for the results of the election to be according to Your plan.
