 Government Leaders Call the Nation to Prayer through PrayUSA Initiative

 An extraordinary, nationwide prayer initiative spearheaded by government leaders was birthed on March 7, 2015 at the LIFFT America Religious Liberty Summit (Leaders Inspiring Faith and Freedom To America) in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Summit was convened by the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation along with Congressman J. Randy Forbes and Senator James Lankford, co-chairs of the Congressional Prayer Caucus.

Representing 25 different states, 16 members of Congress and 36 state legislators gathered to coordinate a tactical strategy to effectively challenge the growing anti-faith movement in the United States. The consensus among participants was that people of faith can no longer be silent as our nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage is being compromised by an anti-faith narrative.

The highlight of the Summit was a commitment by government leaders to call the nation to fervent and humble prayer. In a solemn and historic ceremony, all who were present signed a Call to Prayer for America Proclamation.

The Call to Prayer for America Proclamation has been signed by hundreds of national, state and locally elected officials, as well as thousands of citizens. Copies of the Proclamation are being read by national and state government leaders in churches across America.

Now, Pennsylvania is participating in this historic opportunity to join with thousands nationwide who are participating in this growing movement. As has been done throughout our nation’s history, Pennsylvania pastors and government leaders are uniting Christian leaders of both government and church in humble prayer for mercy. Senator Stewart Greenleaf and Rep. Rick Saccone will be participating in the PrayUSA PA event sponsored by the Pennsylvania Prayer Caucus Network and the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation.
This is not just a prayer meeting. Please don’t miss this important gathering.

 “This is an timely and exceptional movement of uplifting prayer that is being spearheaded by our government leaders in order to see freedom endure.” – Lea Carawan, Executive Director

 “Prayer is an act of faith that has unified the nation since our inception. Corporate prayer can bring unity, despite disagreements, by reminding us that, while we may disagree about what paths or policies will best continue to support and secure our freedoms, we must also recognize where we have shared motivations to preserve that freedom. Beyond our differences, we can be one voice, united in prayer as we strive to overcome the challenges that lie before us.” – Congressman J. Randy Forbes, Founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Prayer Caucus

 Rep. Rick Saccone, co-chairman of the Pennsylvania Prayer Caucus, or Abby Abildness, State Director of the Pennsylvania Prayer Caucus Network is available for interviews. Contact Kristi Makin at 757.546.2190 x 706 or at
