NASHVILLE -- State Representative Mark Pody (R-Lebanon) and additional members of the Tennessee Legislative Prayer Caucus are excited to announce plans to launch the PrayUSA initiative across Tennessee. The Legislative Prayer Caucus has begun the process of identifying communities across the state that are willing to host legislators for a PrayUSA Sunday event.
Nationally, congregations are scheduling time on Sunday mornings where government leaders attend gatherings to read the Prayer for American Proclamation, share a brief video, and allow members to sign the proclamation.
Last January, Tennessee's state lawmakers joined with citizens in the old Supreme Court chambers of the state capitol for this exact purpose. Now, the group is hoping to take this initiative into religious communities across Tennessee in order to encourage others to pray unceasingly for our beloved nation. From the halls of Congress and state capitols across the United States, elected officials are calling on citizens of this country to humble themselves and pray.
The PrayUSA initiative is a tremendous opportunity for individuals and congregations across Tennessee to get involved. For more information, please contact Representative Pody's office at 615-741-7086.
