We are very excited about an opportunity to advance the PrayUSA Initiative through a wonderful new partnership with Emmy-nominated actress and executive producer, Roma Downey. Downey is best known for her nine seasons on the hit CBS television show, Touched by an Angel, and more recently, for a number of faith-based projects. Along with her husband, Mark Burnett and through their organization, Lightworkers Media, Downey has produced two well received series, The Bible and A.D.: The Bible Continues, as well as the movie, Son of God. Her career has spanned nearly 27 years and she works seamlessly on both sides of the camera. Downey’s newest project, Answered Prayers, is a TLC series that highlights inspiring and real stories of individuals who have experienced the power of answered prayer.
Please take a moment to watch this short video message from Roma inviting you to join her, along with nearly a thousand government leaders and over a hundred thousand fellow citizens in the PrayUSA movement that is spreading all across America.
The PrayUSA: Government Leaders Calling the Nation to Prayer Initiative is becoming an amazing success story, as nearly 1,000 government leaders and115,000 citizens have already answered the call to prayer for America. If you haven’t done so already, why not add your support by signing the Prayer for America Proclamation. We are believing for a million voices who are willing to stand up for our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage and to earnestly seek God’s hand of mercy and grace.
Encourage your own church to schedule a PrayUSA Sunday – to invite a local or state leader to read the Proclamation and then have the congregation sign it and commit to praying in humble petition for God to heal our nation (2 Chron. 7:14). Everything you need is right here.
Government leaders and pastors—shoulder-to-shoulder and in complete unity—makes a bold statement to directly challenge the misapplication and distortions regarding the “separation of church and state” argument—a false narrative that has hindered Christians from exercising their constitutionally protected religious freedoms within the marketplace of ideas.
While we celebrate and need advocates and supporters like Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, and from Congressmen and Congresswomen, from Senators, Governors, Mayors and other government and ministry leaders…your voice also matters and is just as critical—“For the body is not one member, but many” (1 Cor. 12:14). Every person who calls Jesus Christ, Lord…every signed Proclamation, every gift and especially, every prayer offered to God on behalf of our country, is critical if we are to win back America and stop this rapid descent into a growing amoral abyss.
If we unite…if we do this together, we may yet see a turning of the tide. With all my heart, I’m confident that God hears your prayers for your life, your family and loved ones and for our nation. Keep praying. Keep trusting. Keep believing.
