Congressman and His Wife Start Small Campaign to Send Prayer Cards to the White House…You Won’t Believe the Results

Published

on

While some Christians have supported Donald Trump since the beginning of his campaign, many more have had their doubts about his presidency.

The last few years have been a time for many Christians, this author included, to consider what we ought to look for in a leader and what our duty is in the political realm.

At the end of the day, however, we know who our King is, and we know that every political leader will stand before Him one day and take account of all they’ve done.

So what does the Bible ask us to do for our earthly leaders, especially those who appear to want to make sure our lives on Christians can be peaceable on this earth?

The Apostle Paul’s instructions in his first epistle to Timothy were simple:

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” -1 Timothy 2:1-3

Last year, after attending a GOP retreat, one congressman and his wife felt led to minister to the President in this way, and they were stunned to see how their small-scale plan to send prayer cards to the White House had an immense impact on the President.

CBN News reports:

When Tracy Bost, wife of Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL), first set up a PO box for people in her district to send prayers to the president, she was hesitant to go back and check it fearing no one would send anything. But to her great surprise, hundreds of prayers poured in.

“That was really a blessing to me and then I knew that God was doing something bigger than I ever imagined,” Tracy told CBN News.

Mrs. Bost said that after attending the retreat in 2017, which was met with large-scale protests, she had been discouraged to see all the ugliness and hatred. She just wanted to do something positive for the President.

“I just kept praying, ‘God what can I do? What can I do?'” she says. “The prayer card came to mind. That we could just have people in my life, friends and family members, send a little prayer of encouragement to the president.”

She could not have imagined just how successful the campaign was, however.

They set a goal of 100 prayers and asked people to send them on 3×5 notecards. Six weeks later, they had received almost 300. Her husband asked a White House liaison to deliver them to President Trump.

“I handed them to him and said look, we don’t want any [thing], just give them to him okay?” Rep. Bost explained.

A couple of months later, Bost joined a few other congressmen in the Oval Office for a bill signing.

“The president looks at me and goes ‘Bost. Bost.’ He said, ‘prayer cards!’ and I said ‘yeah, Mr. President. My wife did that and circulated prayer cards.’ And he said, ‘We use those.’ And I said, ‘Good I’m so glad, that’s wonderful,'” recalled Bost.

The president then asked an aide to grab the bag of cards off a shelf so they could take a picture.

“He said, ‘understand, we use these,’ and I turned and when I turned I ran, honest to goodness, chest-to-chest with the Vice President and he goes, ‘Mike he’s not joking, we use these,'” explained Bost. “‘They’ll be times we say okay, and we reach out and we grab them. It’s amazing that people are willing to put these together.'”

It is certainly a powerful and inspiring thing to know the President regularly refers to the prayers of those who were willing to take the time and write some down.

Save conservative media!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
