Welcome and thank you for checking out our site.
Simply said, this is not about a person or a political party. In today’s environment it may not even be P.C. However, Presidential Uplift is about praying for God’s will - for our country. The country that was founded on freedom of religion, freedom of speech & liberty and justice for all. The country where our currency states “in God we trust.” We are “one nation under God.” The country that has a national prayer. Oh you didn’t know? It’s surprising how many Americans don’t know. We can’t teach it to our children any longer in schools & how many do you think are getting it at home? Staggering statistic.
The country that when I grew up, we went to bed with the national anthem playing at the end of the day when broadcasting stopped. This was the standard ritual in households all across the country, in the beginning of simple tv. It was the typical end of the day, giving honor to our country & our veterans. Remember them? Our veterans, they are the ones who kick tail & protect us. The country where, as school children we could pause at the beginning of the day to lift up our country with the Pledge of Allegiance. And a moment of silence to observe prayer in the religion in which you and your family worshiped. No judgement. You remember don’t you? The Pledge of Allegiance. When it wasn’t politically incorrect or a bad word. Geeez, what has happened to us, our country in the name of being politically correct? And the country where people from countries not as great as ours, could come here and follow their dreams. Create a new life. The "American Dream." And they were/are accepted to do so. And we weren’t second best, we simply were arm and arm with these new pioneers. Just like the ones that founded our country. All of our ancestors... who wanted to speak our language & still keep their own. Where every life mattered. Well, no so much for the American Indians, but I digress.
Presidential uplift is about praying for god’s will - for our presidency
No matter of the political party, the gender, the race or the religion. Quite frankly, and I know I’m not alone with this, no matter which way the election goes, we are definitely going to need to keep praying and lifting up our next president.
So if this humble, little initiative, PresidentialUuplift ~ Pray God’s Will, causes one person to pray, then mission accomplished. Two? I’m ecstatic. Three? Things will begin to happen. What? I don’t know. But it’s not in our hands, when his will is done.
We are at a pivotal moment in history & we understand that the principles our country were founded under are under attack. It will take a tremendous amount of prayer to get us through this. I believe we simply should Pray for God’s Will for our country. And after the election, continue praying, for our president, whomever that shall be, for they will need it. As will we all.
Pray on. Pray strong. God bless. You. Yours. And our great country.
“Where two or more or gathered, I am there also.”- Matthew 18:20
Please share with your family, friends, church and neighbors . No matter gender, race, religion, or political standing, we are in this together.
Much love, peace & prayers to you.

Dear heavenly Father, we come to You today as a humble people desperate for Your supernatural intervention on behalf of our beloved nation. First, we thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed on our land, blessings that have allowed us to bring so much good and benefit to not only our own citizens but also to the rest of the world. The very ideals upon which this country was founded were based on biblical truths, no matter how some try to rewrite history to deny that very fact today.
This is why our hearts are so broken over how You continue to be marginalized and dismissed by both our people and our institutions. We are also saddened by the fact that Your people have contributed greatly to the spiritual apathy that now engulfs us. Our satisfaction in remaining religious without being fully committed to living out the truths of Your Word has caused us to become co-conspirators with the forces of evil that are destroying us as a society.
It is for this reason that we personally and collectively repent of our carnality and recommit ourselves to becoming visible and verbal disciples of Jesus Christ. Enable us, by Your Spirit, to no longer be secret agent Christians but rather to publicly declare and live out Your truth in a spirit of love so that You feel welcome in our country once again.
Thank You for Your promise to hear our prayers when we call to You with hearts of repentance and obedience, which is how we are appealing to You today, Father. On behalf of Your church, we affirm afresh the priority You are to us that You would fill every dimension of our lives as we seek to bring You glory through the advancement of Your kingdom in our personal lives, our family lives, and in the lives of our churches and our government leaders. We confidently invite heaven’s intervention into all the affairs of our nation and we praise You in advance for Your answer.
In Jesus’ name we pray.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer.
