Presidential Prayer Team

Several years ago, I was part of a group of people that voluntarily prayed for the president and other leaders daily, and it is called the "Presidential Prayer Team." I enjoyed being a part of it, but as my mothering and homeschooling responsibilities became more overwhelming, I had to back out of it. I still try to pray for the president and leaders often, but I am not part of the PPT anymore.

This information is from their website:

Who is The Presidential Prayer Team?

Since 2001, The Presidential Prayer Team has been the source millions of Americans have turned to for encouragement and inspiration to pray for America, our President, our national leaders and our Armed Forces.

We are a national ministry dedicated to a focused mission of encouraging, inspiring and practicing PRAYER on behalf of our President, nation’s leaders and our troops. We also seek to be a catalyst in the development of a robust prayer lifestyle. We do this by finding and PROVIDING tools to encourage prayer – through email, web, mobile phones and other communication tools. Ultimately, we believe that prayer will TRANSFORM our nation, one heart at a time.

We believe that Almighty God who rules over the affairs of men…and who moves in response to the prayers of His people. So, with unflinching devotion, members of The Presidential Prayer Team are working everyday to raise the shield of prayer over our beloved country.

Please consider joining our membership – it’s free! When you do, you’ll join the largest group of intercessors in America, and we’ll provide you with an extensive variety of tools and resources to assist and support your prayer life. Join Here

I enjoyed the website and its prayers that they suggest, and they way the PPT sent out frequent reminders to pray. There are many Christian leaders that support and are involved in the Presidential Prayer Team. If you feel so burdened, and are interested, please check out their website and join the PPT. It is a wonderful organization, and prayer is a powerful tool. Even if I don't agree with the president, I can still pray for him, and God can use him. 

There are many Bible verses about prayer, but here are a few that relate:

"...If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."  2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
