President's Day Challenge

"Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those whom in Thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth."
16th President Abraham Lincoln

America Remembers

President's Day marks an important reminder of why we need to pray for our president and be thankful for the blessings that God has bestowed upon our country.

Former Presidents Washington and Lincoln remain the two most recognized leaders during this holiday, but President's Day is now commonly seen as a day to recognize the lives and achievements of all of America’s chief executives.

"Let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help."
35th President John F. Kennedy

America Prays
The presidency has changed dramatically since the days of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. But our presidents are still drawn to prayer and frequently recognize the sovereignty of God over this country. 

"So we pray to Him now for the vision to see our way clearly, to see the way that leads to a better life for ourselves and for all our fellow men, to the achievement of His will, to peace on earth."
32nd President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Pray with us:
We know that You alone know all the details of the past, present, and future. We are in awe and grateful for your blessings and mercies upon this country. We pray for President Trump, that he would recognize that his authority has been instituted by your will. Grant him wisdom and a humble heart as he leads. Remind us that our identity and our eternity are with You, and help us to set our minds on you and keep our hearts open to your will. We ask that you use our gifts to better each other and our country, all to honor you. May we, as a nation, be the hands and feet of Christ to show the world your love. Amen.

America's challenge:
Ultimately, this country and this ministry belong to God. We are here because we believe that it is our calling to serve all of our members and to blanket all of America with prayer for the protection of this country, the president, and leaders. From now through Monday, February 18th, as we reflect on the providence of God for America, we are challenging you to ask God what part he wants you to play in this ministry. Please pray with us over these next few days, and if so led, please consider giving to show your support for what we are doing.
