Georgia Woman Launches Project for Christians to Pray Over the 2020 Election Cycle

365+ Prayer Project

A Southern Baptist layperson is asking Christians to register online for a prayer emphasis she launched to cover the 2020 election cycle with prayer and fasting.

The 365+ Prayer Project online website allows volunteers to register to pray and fast at least one day through Nov. 3, 2020, for national and local candidates and elections in all 50 states, project founder Kim Strickland of Blackshear, Ga., told Baptist Press Wednesday (Nov. 13).

“What I really want is anyone who has just a heart for intercession for America,” she said, “if they can reach out to a family or a friend who also has a heart for America in another state, and to bring the 365+ Prayer Project to that state, that is what we really desire, just for more people who have a heart for interceding for America to be saturated in regions across the country.”

Strickland has enlisted a few Georgia pastors and the Piedmont Okefenokee Baptist Association (POBA) to help, including fellow Christians at Bridge Community Church in Blackshear.

To have Christians in every state fasting and praying at least one day each leading up to 2020 governmental elections, with volunteers on each day, is the project’s goal. All participants in each state would fast and pray on election day.

“We have to saturate the country,” she said. “We have to hold hands with other states. And it shows that we’re in unity together, all of us who love God and who want what’s best for our country, for us who have a holy rage against what we know is the enemy trying to divide us.”

She encourages prayer “that America will return to holiness, that America will be one nation under God, that America will no longer be divided, that America will be a country that our Lord Jesus Christ can smile upon.”
