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

The Presidential Prayer Team remains firmly committed to prayer and the biblical values upon which this great nation was founded. We are continuing our daily prayer over the 2020 election through December 14, 2020, at such time when the Electoral College cast their votes to officially determine the president-elect.

Several states are in the process of recounting, reviewing and/or verifying their vote counts. Contested states have until December 8 to finalize their results. Legal challenges may keep some states from officially certifying their election results. State voting results can project the president-elect, but the legal determination is set when the Electoral College cast their votes for their respective state*. We will continue to provide daily encouragement, verses, and prayers, as you to pray alongside fellow believers each day.


December 8, 2020:Deadline for certified results in contested states.
December 14, 2020: State electors cast their final votes for President of the United States of America* and the Pray the Vote 2020 prayer initiate comes to a close.
December 23, 2020:Deadline for certified of electoral votes to be received by the president of the U.S. Senate.
January 3, 2021**:Swearing in of 117th United States Congress. B.O.L.D. (Beside Our Leaders Daily) 2021 prayer initiative begins.
January 6, 2021:Joint sessions of Congress formally count Electoral College votes and declare election results.
January 20, 2021:Presidential and vice-presidential inauguration.
January 21, 2021:100 Days of Prayer initiative over the President of the United States and his administration begins.

*In the event of a tie in Electoral College votes or if one or more states cannot certify their results to reach a total of 270 or more votes for one candidate, the House of Representatives is tasked with choosing the president and the Senate is tasked with choosing the vice-president.
**Dates that fall on a Saturday or Sunday are subject to change per legislative appointment.

Today’s Prayer and Encouragement:

Prayer by Jim Bolthouse, president of The Presidential Prayer Team

  • A Thanksgiving Environment

    Give thanks for the nation’s freedoms

    1 Chronicles 16:34 – Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

    For many in America this year, there were be fewer seats around the Thanksgiving dinner table. Hopefully, that is just because of coronavirus restrictions, but for some it is because there are people isolating or no longer with us.  Outside the doors of your home, there are disagreements about policies and who has control over what. It may not see like a very blessed environment.

    But for Christ followers, there is a consistent Guest at your table…the Lord Himself. While you are fellowshipping with one another, be sure to fellowship with Him. Your environment may not be the one you would like, but you can still be thankful…thankful that you can have two-way communication with absent relatives, thankful that the market hadn’t run out of cranberries, thankful that a vaccine will soon be available, thankful that God is with you and has promised never to leave you. And no matter what is inside or outside, always be thankful that you live in America, the only nation in history founded on Judeo-Christian values.

    Pray that next year will see a return to your Thanksgiving traditions.

    Pray With Us

    Holy and Everlasting God, we are indeed blessed to be Americans. We are grateful for those who came before us who taught us the benefits of giving thanks, and for those among our political leaders who have designated a day on which we are to remember and give thanks to You.  It is hard for so many this year, and we pray for those who are lonely, distressed or heavily burdened. You are the Source of Comfort, and we ask that You give comfort to them this year. You are a good, good Father, and Your blessings are bountiful. We give you thanks and praise, Amen.

    • Pray that, as you count your blessings, God would reveal the many areas of your life where he has showered you with grace
    • Pray with a heart of thanks and praise.
    • Pray with thanksgiving and confess any areas where you lack gratitude.
    • Thank Him for the gift of His peace.
    • Pray for the nation in the midst of this uncertain time that all Americans would turn to God in thanksgiving and praise.
    • Pray for a transformed attitude that will bring you joy and happiness through the coming holiday season.
    • Thank Him for the powerful gift of prayer, and for the presence of His Holy Spirit.

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.
