Highlights from the recent Call to Pray observance in Springfield are the focus of this week’s Illinois Family Spotlight. IFI is partnering with Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall to assemble pastors and faith leaders at the state capital, on a regular basis, to pray. In a display of unity in the body of Christ, pastors came from churches throughout Illinois to praise God, confess our corporate sin, and petition Him for His continued blessing on our land.

The Lord laid it on the hearts of these pastors to pray for the Church and local churches; the advance of the gospel; a nationwide conviction of sin, repentance and revival; an increase in righteous and godly public servants at all levels of state and federal government; our depraved national culture and more.  As you listen to these impassioned prayers, we hope you will be encouraged, and that you will commit to lifting up these concerns in your daily prayer time with the Lord.
