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

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.

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism

They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.

The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
