Cayce—A member of Cayce Baptist Church felt compelled to approach the church’s deacons with a proposition. The proposition arose from inner concern and a perceived calling which led to a call for nationwide participation.
“She felt burdened about it,” said Dale True, pastor of Cayce Baptist Church, “We want godly leaders. We want America to come back to God.”
The call is for a simultaneous prayer effort for the upcoming presidential election on July 3, a date strategically selected before the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. People living in the Eastern Standard Time Zone are called to pray at 2 p.m., people in the Central Time Zone are called to pray at 1 p.m., people in the Mountain Time Zone are called to pray at noon and those in the Pacific Time Zone are called to pray at 11 a.m.
Church deacons took the idea and ran with it, sending out about 2,000 flyers promoting the prayer initiative. The church voted to fund all the expenses necessary to get the word out.
“We want to call America back to prayer and call America back to God,” added True.
Participants are also encouraged to pray for America’s young people. The congregation of Cayce Baptist feels strong concern over today’s news that the younger generation will have to deal with as they get older.
“The issues we’re seeing in the media today we would never have thought of when I was young,” said True, “Our nation needs to be investing in our young people. They’re not just our future, they’re our now.”
Cayce Baptist is having a meal after their church service on July 3 and then will begin praying for revival at 1 p.m. since they are in the Central Time Zone. (WR)
