In Search of America’s Vital Signs


The Presidential Prayer Team


        Blood pressure

        These are the basic readings taken whenever you go into a doctor's office, to assess your physical well being ... to provide vital signs as to how good, or how bad, your overall health is at that time.

        Now imagine -- if the nation's vital signs were being taken right now, what would they read? And what would they really say about the spiritual health, and future longevity, of the United States?

        As we pray for our country along with you, we are convinced that America is in critical condition. The continued onslaught against our Christian values, and the nation's undeniable Christian heritage, is increasing. And like a cancer spreading in the body, this assault threatens to place our country on life support.

        One vital sign that our nation is in trouble is the concerted attack on Christian public prayer-- one that hasn't, and will not, go away just because the National Day of Prayer has now passed. Despite bold and successful public prayer throughout our nation on May 6, groups such as the Freedom From Religion Foundation (the organization that challenged the National Day of Prayer as being unconstitutional) remain stalwart, claiming in a recent video that 1) our Founding Fathers did not pray during the Constitutional Convention, 2) that the Constitution itself is godless, and 3) that George Washington did not kneel in prayer at Valley Forge.

        These groups are being heard, as evidenced by Judge Barbara Crabb's decision in April to rule the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional. However, all of us on The Presidential Prayer Team have been hand-picked and chosen by God for " ... such a time as this" (Esther 4:14) to passionately pray for our country-- and let our voice be heard in the nation!

        Throughout the summer and all the way to the mid-term elections in November, The Presidential Prayer Team will provide for you:
  1. Campaigns that'll bring us together in prayer.

  2. Ways for you to speak out against what you see happening in the courts and in the nation's capitol.

  3. Educational information about the candidates and initiatives that'll impact the political and social direction of our country.
        Today, we'd like to start by asking you to tell us what you believe the issues and concerns are that you believe has the United States in critical condition as a Christian nation. We want to know what your concerns are, why they are important, and what is the biblical reference or response to your concern. We will then publish the top concerns as the major Vital Signs that we need to pray for and take a stand about in the days to come.

Tell us what has the U.S. in critical condition as a Christian nation!

        Thank you for your prayers and financial support-- and get ready to go to our knees, and take a stand, for America!
