CONVENTIONS DURING A NATION IN CRISIS
The pandemic has changed how we do almost everything. In this critical election year, the national conventions were already in need of prayer. Now, however, it is even truer. The Democratic Convention is happening now, August 17-20, 2020, virtually. The Republican Convention is scheduled to be held August 24-27, 2020.
During the Democratic convention this week, final platform decisions will be made. The Republican party adopted the 2016 platform in full for 2020.
You can pray this week in real-time, as the Democratic Party is formulating policy, programs, and their 2020 platform. Follow along with the daily schedule, and intercede on behalf of the Democrat Party–praying that they would honor God and His principles in their convention, and more importantly, in their platform. Click here for the new special report and pray along strategically this week. A similar special report will be available for the Republican Convention.
IFA asked Tamara Scott, the Chair of the Republican National Committee Faith Advisory Board, how intercessors can effectively pray for the conventions.
She explained the importance of seeking God about this: “While the conventions may be partisan events, seeking God’s direction and blessing is not. Our founders often sought the providence of God in their political work and we were blessed as a nation because of it.” She suggested we pray “that the platform, delegates, and speakers be God-honoring; that anyone who might plan to be a problem will quickly be exposed and their plans foiled; and that the conventions be peaceable, productive, and pleasant for all.” Her closing thoughts about praying for the conventions and elections are inspiring: “Pray this election serves as a catalyst to something much larger for God’s glory, releasing a spirit of revival, reconciliation, and restoration in our families, churches, communities, and the halls of government. For when we honor God in America, we’ll truly make American great again.”
