As sessions begin in State Capitols, the Word of God is being proclaimed by your State Ministers.

Why is the Bible so important? 

"The Bible is the one supreme source of revelation of the meaning of life, the nature of God and spiritual nature and needs of men. It is the only guide of life which really leads the spirit in the way of peace and salvation. America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of the Holy Scriptures." - President Woodrow Wilson, 1911, Denver Rally.

"The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in Him for the healing of America...our country is in need of and ready for a spiritual renewal..." President Ronald Reagan, 1980, Our Christian Heritage, Letter from Plymouth Rock, (Marlborough, NH: The Plymouth Rock Foundation) p 7 

Two years later,1982, President Ronald Reagan declared the Year of the Bible  READ THAT PROCLAMATION

The Scriptures are the resource for Spiritual Renewal. They point people to the One True God and the redemption He offers.

"The Word of God is living and active, and sharper than sharper than any two edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, both of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we must answer." Hebrews 4:12-13

The Apostle Paul made clear, "How shall they hear without a preacher?"  God has called our State Ministers to open up the Word of God and guide your leaders and supporting staff to the salvation and wisdom it declares!


Pray for the Spirit of God to use the Word of God to grab the attention of each person serving in our Capitols. Ask the Lord to help them see the provision of the Lord and then to respond trusting God's promises. These public servants need our prayers for salvation, for wisdom, for courage, for humility, for moral integrity.

Hope springs forth from the Word of God! There is always great hope when our hearts look higher to heaven's throne! 

Thank you for your faithful prayer support of this ministry!
