This is a great idea. And Brownbackers are making it happen.
If you believe in God and the power of prayer, Lonnie Berger wants you to do something for him.
He wants you to pray that Sam Brownback does well in the Iowa Straw Poll in Ames on Aug. 11.
Absolutely. I’m in.
Brownback, a Republican senator from Kansas, is running for president of the United States, and doing well at Ames could be critical for the future of his campaign.
Berger, who calls himself Brownback’s “Prayer Coordinator,” has a website called prayforbrownback.com and sent out an e-mail urging everyone to “pray that God would supernaturally activate the Christians in Iowa to pray and go to the straw poll to vote for Sam.”
Awesome. The power of prayer is indisputable. It’s time to put those hands together for our man Sam. Can I get an amen?
Also: “Pray for God to break the spiritual strongholds over Iowa that would keep Sam from being brought more into the national spotlight” and “Pray that God would use this poll to weed out those candidates that would push our country away from the Lord.”
Lastly, “Pray that God would bring Sam to the top and that his campaign would get huge national coverage in the media.”
It’s time for Brownbackers to put faith into action. The time, dear friends, is now. The Lord is waiting for your call.
Berger, who is independent of the Brownback campaign, is not naive. He knows that when it comes to the Ames straw poll there is something almost as important as prayer: buses.
So he asks that you also “pray for the logistics” of getting thousands of Brownback supporters in Iowa onto buses and on their way to Ames.
Your prayers are valuable and powerful. Let’s put them to good use.
Visit Pray for Brownback and put your prayers on the line. It’s the right thing to do. It’s the Christian thing to do. It’s the American thing to do.
Dear Lord, please give fellow Brownbackers in Iowa the strength and means they need to give Senator Sam Brownback the votes he needs to win the Ames straw poll and the upcoming caucusses. Sam is your servant. He is America’s public servant. Let him be your vessel down here, oh Lord. Let his cup runneth over.
Please bless Sam and Mary and the entire Brownback family. Help them to renew America and the world. This principled, conservative Republican will do your work here on Earth, as you well know. And we are thankful that you have given him to us. Praise be to G-d!
Brownback in 2008. And beyond.
In Jesus’ holy name,
Feel free to post your own prayers and your hopes and dreams in the comment thread. G-d will hear your prayers. And that what must be done, will be done, in His name. May the Heavenly Father bless you all.
A Reminder: Ames is less than two weeks away. The time for prayer and outreach to friends in Iowa is NOW! Just do it.
