The Presidential Prayer Team will host the largest virtual prayer event in United States history on Thursday to commemorate the National Day of Prayer.
"We're going all-out in creating a virtual prayer room," Jim Bolthouse, president of the Presidential Prayer Team, says. "It's an online room, a personal online room that you can set up and you can sit there in your office, your home, anywhere with a device, phone device, a tablet or computer and participate in praying for a country."
Bolthouse says an online prayer guide will help users pray for the president and other government officials.
People can also listen to how others are praying.
"[People tell us that] it's comforting to know that when I hear somebody praying, they pray and are concerned about the same thing I am," Bolthouse says. "And it just makes the world a lot smaller when you can hear Christians with the same concerns and praying the same way. So that's part of it. It really is an experience that I hope that when they go there, they'll spend 10 to 15 minutes, a half-hour or longer, just taking time to methodically pray for our leaders of our country.
"And then of course, we'd love to have them tell their friends because the more that we get people involved, the more we're getting people to pray, and that's our goal. Our goal is to reach anyone who has a living God living within their heart to say, 'Let us help you direct your prayers for leadership.'"
