OUR FUTURE - PRAY FOR OUR NATION
less than 24 hours away from the end of what well may be the
most momentous campaign in our history.
Very soon, voters across the United States will be going to the
polls to elect a president, 33 Senators and the entire House of
Representatives. In 11 states, they'll also be voting on
constitutional amendments banning the travesty known as gay
The stakes could not be higher. Everything from the course of
the war on terrorism, to the economy, to protection of the
unborn, to the sanctity of marriage, to our right as Americans
to publicly acknowledge God could well hinge on the choices
voters make tomorrow.
Since our founding in 1998, Vision America has preached the
necessity of Christian voter participation. For Christians,
voting isn't an option, but a sacred duty. We cannot stand idly
by and watch as our society devolves into Babylon with
For the past year, we've urged our Patriot Pastors to register
voters and to educate their congregations (from a Christian
perspective) on the vital issues this election revolves around.
But there's more we can do.
Please e-mail and call as many people as possible and remind
them of the importance of voting. In the 2000 election, if fewer
than 1,000 votes had gone the other way in Florida, Al Gore
would have carried the state and been elected president. Many
pastors have more than a thousand people sitting in the pews at
a typical Sunday service.
By all accounts, this election could be just as close. In a
number of swing states, the presidential candidates are in a
dead heat, or separated by half a percentage point in the polls.
Experts tell us that the outcome will be decided by which side
does a better job of getting its people to the polls.
Homosexual activists, feminists, the abortion lobby, militant
secularists and their allies will spare no effort to turn out
like-minded voters. We dare not do less.
For Patriot Pastors and other concerned Christians, tomorrow's
focus must be on bringing out a huge Christian vote. Citizens
who understand that our nation was founded on Biblical precepts,
grew to greatness with Biblical precepts, and cannot long endure
without Biblical precepts, must vote in record numbers.
We can also pray that this people will be saved - that America
once again will be one nation under God.
Our efforts alone are insufficient. In times of trouble (in such
times as these) our greatest leaders - Washington, Lincoln and
Reagan, among others - urged the American people to humbly
beseech the Almighty for deliverance.
We need to pray and vote; vote and pray. In the words of the
World War II song: "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. And
we'll all stay free."
The outcome of this election is in our hands, and in God's
hands. By our commitment, our efforts and our prayers, we can
prove that we are worthy of redemption.
Please pass on this message to your friends, family, members of
your church, colleagues and anyone else you feel would benefit
from these words.
Postscript: Instead of our usual Tuesday and Thursday schedule,
this week's Patriot Pastor Alerts will come to you on Monday and
Wednesday. You'll receive the next Alert the day after the
