True the Vote and Intercessors for America Launch Pray the Vote Project in Advance of Election
Largest Interactive Election Prayer Initiative in History Guides Americans to Pray for Election Integrity
HOUSTON, Texas – As early voting continues in many states, True the Vote, together with Intercessors for America, today launched the Pray the Vote Project, the largest interactive election prayer initiative in history. Pray the Vote guides Americans to unite in prayer for the election through an engaging online experience, including an interactive map displaying ballot processing center locations across the nation.
“This is the most important election of our lifetime. Now our election processes are being tested like never before,” said Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote. “We’re encouraging everyone to vote, to volunteer, and to pray for the well-being of those involved in the election process: voters, election workers, mail carriers, media, organizers, activists, candidates, and anyone else involved in supporting this historic vote. That’s why I’m excited to launch the Pray the Vote Project to empower all Americans to faithfully pray everyday for this election, for our leaders, and for all the men and women who are working so hard to support a free and fair process under extraordinarily difficult circumstances.”
“We have been praying for non-voting Christians to vote on election day – nearly 5 million prayers already, and now we are adding another important element for prayer – the integrity of the vote,” said Dave Kubal, president and CEO of Intercessors of America. “We encourage everyone to pray for the vote processing centers around the nation. Pray for truthful reporting, integrity in the counting, and accurate results.”
The interactive map allows users to pray specifically for the ballot processing locations in every state, which are listed with a yellow check mark. The dashboard shows how many other Americans are also viewing the map and praying for the election simultaneously, as well as a personalized prayer goal.

About Intercessors for America
Intercessors for America (IFA) is a 501(c)(3) ministry organization and was founded in 1973 when God impressed upon the hearts of a group of godly, respected men the necessity of prayer and fasting for the nation. The nation was experiencing a plethora of problems. The Watergate scandal, Vietnam War, Arab oil embargo, Roe v. Wade, a growing acceptance of drug use, and other challenges were changing the way Americans lived and thought. Today, IFA is still praying about the issues facing our nation, and for the leaders of our nation. Dave Kubal is President/CEO of IFA. To learn more about IFA, visit IFApray.org.
