Is It Not Conceited To Ask People to Pray for You?
ANSWER: We ask no one to pray for us! We ask everyone to Pray for US – Pray for the United States!
Part ONE: Our vision was to tear down federal government restrictions on Christian clergy that now forbid them from backing, or opposing, candidates or legislation. We believe our political leaders have become so corrupt that their work is largely evil. Thus, the US is the United States. We are asking that everyone follow biblical pronouncements and pray for our country and our leaders, that they may see the light Christ shows to anyone seeking redemption.
Part TWO: The term “US” has meant the United States of America for more than 200 years.
While we can understand that some well-intentioned people may think the US refers to our organization, just the opposite is the fact: our organization is dedicated to US – the United States, even though we are a duly organized not-for-profit Christian religious organization.
To our knowledge we are the only Christian church dedicated to preserving the United Sates Constitution and our Judeo-Christian heritage.
Why Was “Pray for US” Started?
ANSWER: Our founder, Charles Benninghoff, decided that the federal government’s efforts to destroy the Body of Christ had to be countered. For more detail about how the federal government is accomplishing this nefarious task, please read our White Paper on IRC 501(c)(3).
As an ordained Elder of the Reformed Church In America, which is America’s oldest Protestant church, Mr. Benninghoff had long sought spiritual guidance and a purposeful Christan life.
Above all other worldly pursuits, he is a patriot, a combat veteran from the Viet Nam War and a devoted family man.
During numerous national crises, Mr. Benninghoff asked his church’s clergy to step up and pronounce that Godliness should be brought back into public life because the political leadership of the United States was becoming more corrupt with each passing day and emerging crises facing America from huge, long-running deficits were amoral and must be stopped. Each time he was rebuffed and told that it is not the role of the “church” to be involved in civic life.
Mr. Benninghoff refused to take these answers as anything other than self-centered delusions because he believed that if the church does not provide moral leadership our country is doomed. He also believes there is nothing in our Constitution restricting religious freedom of speech!
So, Pray for US – Pray for the United States was started with the purpose to provide protection to our glorious Constitution and to defend our Judeo-Christian heritage against all enemies foreign and domestic.
As an aside, when he sought the website name PrayFor.US, providence brought it to his mission. The original owners of the domain name, upon hearing the purpose to which the domain would be put, drastically reduced their price, making it affordable and providing the launching pad that is now our website.
