Sixty days from September 6th will be the November 4th, 2014 mid-term elections - and in Illinois, voters will decide whether current statewide officers will be re-elected to office. So will members of the U.S. Congress, one member of the U.S. Senate, all the Illinois House and one-third of the Illinois Senate.
A group of patriots, including the Huntley Tea Party group, is organizing a prayer effort for the time leading up to the election, organized by Catherine Portera. Ms. Protera wrote in an email, "In 2012, 40 days before the election, we began to pray together for our country. With all that is happening in our world, in America and in each state, this year we will begin our prayers 60 days out from the election."
Those interested in joining the group in daily prayer, contact Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be placed on the group's list.
"Every day an email prayer will be sent that we can say together," Catherine wrote. "It is suggested that if possible to say your prayer sometime in the morning between 7:00 - 10:00 AM CST. If that is not possible, send up your prayer when you can as will many across the country living in different time zones. Prayers will come from a variety of resources. Your reflections and prayers are most welcome."
Catherine encourages sharing her invite with friends and family.
"Together we will ask God to intervene as we desire to bring America back to IN GOD WE TRUST. Let us ask for blessings for truth in media and campaign information, for honesty and integrity in voting methods and renewal and restoration of Constitutional principles and freedoms."
