Prayer is Important

Prayer changes things because the God to whom we pray is all-powerful and all-loving.  Ask God to change the hearts of all Americans.  Ask God to turn their eyes and to direct their desires to His will. Ask God to change our nation by changing our people. We implore you to pray daily for our leaders and for the people of our country.

We counted down the weeks, from July 4th, 2016 until election day on November  8, 2016, with inspiring videos of prayer and faith.   Watch some the videos and find out…

Which Presidents Prayed and Professed Faith in God?

Presidents throughout our nation’s history have prayed to God and invoked His name and His will to direct them and to bless our country.

Watch as Presidents proclaim their faith, and evangelists speak about true hope.  Then pray for God’s mercy and grace upon our country and that He be the One who leads and directs our country’s elected officials.

Christian evangelist, apologist, author and speaker, Alex McFarland prays for our nation. Alex is also the co-host of a daily radio program, Exploring the Word, on American Family Radio.  Pray with us now for our country.

“Almighty God. As we stand here at this moment, my future associates in the executive branch of government join me in beseeching that thou will make full and complete our dedication to the service of the people…” — President Dwight Eisenhower, 34th President, 2nd Inaugural Address 1957

The 200th anniversary of the Presidency was observed as George H.W. Bush took the executive oath on the same Bible George Washington used in 1789.  “…my first act as President is a prayer. I ask you to bow your heads: Heavenly Father, we bow our heads and thank You for Your love…” — President George H.W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, Inaugural Address January 20, 1989

Likewise, before the Democratic Convention, Franklin Graham called upon the people of our nation to pray.  Join with him in praying for our nation and its leaders. Prayer is important and prayer changes things.  For information about a prayer rally near you, visit Decision America Tour 2016.

“The peoples of the earth face the future with grave uncertainty, composed almost equally of great hopes and great fears.” — President Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States, Inaugural Address 1949.

“…with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.” — President John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, Inaugural Address 1961

“From the day of our Founding, we have proclaimed that every man and woman on this earth has rights, and dignity, and matchless value, because they bear the image of the Maker of Heaven and earth…. History has an ebb and flow of justice, but history also has a visible direction, set by liberty and the Author of Liberty…”—Pres George W. Bush, 41st Pres of the United States, Inaugural Address, Jan 20, 2005

Before the Republican Convention, Franklin Graham called upon the people of our nation to pray.  Join with him in praying for our nation and its leaders.  Franklin Graham has been holding prayer rallies nationwide this year.  He will continue to do so until the election. For information about one near you, visit Decision America Tour 2016.

Our Nation is in TROUBLE!

No hope in the Democrats!

No hope in the Republicans!

←  Hear this short lesson from the book of Nehemiah, shared by Franklin Graham at the Decision America Tours 2016.

Where is our hope?

Will Our Nation Continue to be Blessed?

We Need God More Than He Needs Us

Our country was founded by men and women who believed in God and His Word.  “Where did we begin to lose sight of that noble beginning?”

7,900 people!  293 prayed to receive Jesus!!!

In Almighty God!

Pray to the God of Hope

All the Answers to All the Problems

Why do we make it so difficult?  Listen to this former President, who spoke of the simplicity and importance of truth.

Decision America 2016, Columbus OH

On 10/06, my husband, a friend, and I (Shari Abbott, Reasons for Hope* Jesus) drove to Columbus for Decision America 2016. It was an amazing experience to join with thousands of Christians, and Franklin Graham, to pray for God’s mercy for our country and His provision for our future. Pause to Pray for our nation, its leaders, and all Americans.  AND…Get out and VOTE on 11/08/2016.

Pray with Dependence &

Pray with Confidence

We desperately need God. He is our only true hope! Take time to pray asking for His guidance as you consider casting your vote.  Remember, it is God who raises up leaders and deposes them (Daniel 2:21). Seek His will and trust that our future is in His hands.

We Will Never Abandon Our Belief in God  

Which president said, “We Will Never Abandon Our Belief in God?” (This video captures his words)  We know there is sin and evil in the world. We know that we are to stand fast on the truth of God. When hate groups rise up, we must denounce them following a pure and simple command Jesus gave us.

Measured By Our Words

Read the words of President Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States. At his inauguration, he spoke of the importance of remembering the faith and values of our country’s founding fathers.  At the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, he spoke boldly of the fate of America, if we abandon the principles upon which our country was founded and forget the words of faith in the Declaration of Independence.  Read now the words of this President and be inspired.

Billy Graham:  If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

The Scriptures are our source of wisdom.  May they also be our guide in all things. Listen as Billy Graham prayed at a past presidential inauguration.

 You Can Make a Difference


Election Day


We invite you to Pause to Pray with us. Thank God for the mercy and grace He has bestowed upon our country and its people.  Be diligent in sharing the gospel of saving grace with all who do not know Jesus. And be an encourager to your brothers and sisters in Christ.  We live in difficult times, but we know that with God all things are possible…even changing the direction of our country.

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 4:2)

If you missed our 4th of July video, Why I love America by John Wayne, watch it now.  Remember, America is worth fighting for and worth praying for. Ask God to direct our nation back to Him by turning the hearts of our people to Himself.

Watch Here!


Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
