America is waking up today after having taken part in one of our most cherished rights – election of our leaders by the people. Thank you for engaging in prayer and exercising this privilege.
I want to congratulate the Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and the American Prayer Caucus Network who were overwhelmingly re-elected. It is clear that Judeo-Christian values and religious freedom are a high priority in the hearts of citizens.
Congressman Mike McIntyre, co-chair of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, has retired from office but not from the goal of protecting God’s rightful place in our nation. He said it best,“We know that the true source of power cannot be found here in the Halls of Congress, or in the Oval Office, or in the West Wing, or in the chambers of the Supreme Court, but only on our knees before the One who is the true source of power.” The CPCF is looking forward to a continued relationship with Congressman McIntyre.
The newly elected leaders will now have an opportunity to serve the people of this nation for such a time as this. Now is the time to double our efforts, to pray for our elected leaders, to support every effort to ensure religious freedom is protected and America’s policies reflect the Judeo-Christian values on which it was founded.
The CPCF will continue to unite, equip and mobilize like-minded government leaders and praying citizens for a concerted effort to reverse the dangerous, secular trend in this nation. Our Founders and other great leaders engraved in America’s history have laid the groundwork for success: 1) invite God to intervene in the affairs of men through prayer, 2) live and lead according to the principles that promote self-government and cultural engagement, 3) trust in God to guide America through challenging circumstances.
