Do Politicians Need Prayer?

Pray for “all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2). 

When asked, “How can I pray for you?” politicians answer: “Pray that I have wisdom to know what is right, courage to do it, and to remain strong in my faith.” That is the purpose of Project 219, an apolitical, non-partisan ministry to our elected officials. Named after room 219 in the United States Capital where people of both parties, dubbed the “Congressional Prayer Caucus,” gather once a week for prayer, Project 219 matches volunteers with Louisiana’s legislators.

Help shape Louisiana with your prayers. Go to to sign up. We want to make sure that each legislator has prayer support. The legislative session runs from March 9 to June 1, 2020.

Dr. Lloyd Harsch, Professor of Church History and Baptist Studies, directs the Institute for Faith and the Public Square.
