Prayer Challenge Issued By Texas Prayer Advocate

Prayer advocate Marlene Salcher prayer challenge

September 3, 2017, was declared a National Day of Prayer by President Donald Trump, coinciding with a Texas Day of Prayer announced by Texas Governor Greg Abbott. President and Mrs. Trump returned to Texas for the day to take part and provide additional support for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  Another Texan, Prayer Advocate and author (God Speaks to Me? Tuning into the Living God), Marlene Salcher of San Antonio recently challenged all Christians to begin a time of prayer and repentance for a new spiritual awakening in America.

As the anniversary of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, approaches, Salcher believes that the 16th anniversary is a perfect time to come together as one people and pray…not just for one day, but as a new habit. Remembering how Americans filled churches and we came together as a nation for a period of time, she believes that the power of prayer can change our nation for the better if we make this commitment.

Prayer groups like the Liberty Prayer Network’s 24/7 National Strategic Prayer Call, the Presidential Prayer Team, and the National Day of Prayer Task Force (which recently announced Dr. Ronnie Floyd as their new president) are among the groups formed to pray daily for our nation and her people. Whether you choose to join with one of these groups, a local group of believers, or to pray alone, Salcher challenges you to pray consistently. To read Marlene Salcher’s complete article, go to
