An Invitation to Pray for our Nation on Election Day


Today millions will cast their vote, selecting from an array of candidates – potential leaders who will impact the direction of the United States of America. The Upper Room Chapel and the Alone With God Prayer Room are open until 4:30 for visitors and staff who would like a time and place to pray.

We encourage you to pray as you feel led by the Holy Spirit. You are also invited to pray for the Church, the body of Christ, because “as the Church goes, so goes the nation.”
