We want Americans to encounter the God who rules over their country. He is the One who gave us this promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land." As we encounter Him, we will be changed and will change America through prayer.
