“Pray for America” Rally Tour Launches

The National Day of Prayer (NDOP) observance on May 2 is just the beginning of this year’s efforts to engage, encourage, and equip millions in prayer. Beginning on Memorial Day, May 24—just three weeks after the National Day of Prayer—the first Pray for America Rally Tour will be launched.

Aboard a specially decorated tour bus, the NDOP team has a vision of carrying a prayer challenge from community to community, state to state, and coast to coast. At each stop they will set up tents and tables, audio and video equipment—and pass out helpful resources. Their hope is to engage many people in prayer at each stop. They will also meet with governors, mayors, pastors, and churches—praying for them and promoting the need for fervent prayer in their communities.

The tour will begin in the northeast states, with the New England route going through six states and 12 communities, for a total of 917 miles. The stops include Boston and Springfield, MA; Providence, RI; New Haven and Hartford, CT; Brattleboro, Montpelier, and Burlington, VT; Concord and Manchester, NH, and Portland and Augusta, ME. Sponsors have come forward to fund this route.


Depending on additional sponsorship, a second route of five states, ten communities, and 1,069 miles will take the bus tour from New York City through the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. That route will culminate in Philadelphia. With more sponsors, the bus tour has the potential of traveling through 24 states beyond the New England route.

“Can you imagine the impact to our nation if thousands of churches, in hundreds of communities, take the challenge to stand boldly in prayer for America—all year long?” asks John Bornschein, vice chairman of the NDOP Task Force. Other ministries have already made a commitment to join the tour, including Joni and Friends with Joni Eareckson Tada, Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah, and Harvest Crusades with Pastor Greg Laurie.
