PHOENIX, Ariz. -- The Presidential Prayer Team, the national prayer ministry for America and its leaders, announced today that its "Pray the Vote" campaign has engaged thousands of Americans across the nation who are praying for the midterm elections each day leading up to November 6, 2018.
With the 10-day campaign fully underway, more praying Americans are signing up daily to find community with those seeking God's will in America and vote according to His leading.
The Presidential Prayer Team has hosted "Pray the Vote" since 2004, urging Americans to pray for the country's present and future leaders during the election process. "Pray the Vote" is founded on the belief that praying for candidates, whether national or local, and for voters, provides discernment to ensure America might wisely choose leaders who are ready to respond and act on the will of God.
To join the campaign, Americans can visit PraytheVote.org to sign up for a specific time to lift the election up in prayer and opt-in to receive daily e-mail prayer reminders. The campaign site also includes the ability to find and identify political candidates across each state so they can be prayed for by name.
"With our country so deeply divided, and with the gap seemingly growing ever wider, there has never been a more urgent time to unite in prayer for our leaders, our country and ourselves," said Jim Bolthouse, President of The Presidential Prayer Team. "During this election year and as you vote, we encourage you to pray that you and others may vote according to His leading. God allows us the opportunity to help accomplish His will and voting and steering our country for the better is an important and powerful way to do that."
Faithful Americans can sign-up to pray at any time through November 6 and access tools and resources to encourage others to join by visiting www.PraytheVote.org.
