The Prayer Warriors Team consists of people of many faith traditions who recognize that the battle for freedom in America is more than political or even cultural. There is a spiritual war being waged for hearts and minds of the American People and for the very destiny of the nation.
A key issue at stake is whether the Founders' understanding of humanity as designed for freedom and endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights will be upheld by our Constitution. Those who would undermine the foundation of our country hold that truth is malleable, the law is arbitrary, and rights can be granted or withheld at the whim of political elites.
Spiritual battles cannot be fought without prayer. So we are asking God to raise up a massive army to commit to pray for the COS movement and the nation.
When you join the Prayer Warriors team, you commit to praying for the following:
Political success. We boldly ask for divine providence for the COS effort in terms of grassroots growth; favor in political, social, and media spheres; and victory in passing the COS legislation.
Spiritual faithfulness. We seek Christlikeness - integrity, charity, humility, servanthood, unity, and righteous living - among the COS leadership and volunteers, both in our private lives and in the realm of political engagement.
Strategic warfare. We stand against spiritual forces of evil that blind our fellow citizens to truth and foster deception, confusion, and conflict.
A new Great Awakening. A nation built on freedom requires citizens who hold the truths of human worth and personal liberty to be self-evident as our Founders did. This will only be the case when the hearts of the American People across the nation acknowledge our Creator God and submit to the teaching of his Word in which we find those truths. We call on the Lord to accomplish this through a move of his Spirit - revealing truth, changing hearts, and drawing people to faith.
We will help you pray meaningfully and specifically by sending you the following resources:
Emails with strategic information (usually sent twice a month)
A monthly prayer calendar
Invitations to prayer teleconferences

“I’m convinced that the battle for our beloved nation is not simply a political struggle but one rooted in deep spiritual conflict. As such we cannot battle it only with political strategies, but we need to use spiritual weapons—the most powerful of which is prayer. Without the blessing and empowerment of Almighty God, America is doomed. My desire is that through prayer, we in Convention of States would position ourselves to be a movement that can be blessed and used by God.” Sharon CorrellTexas
“The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12 that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places. I'm very pleased to join others in the Convention of States Prayer Team in praying for righteousness to return to our nation. We don’t take sides about persons or political parties. We fervently pray to God that He would make our nation worthy of the Convention of States and many other blessings.” Terry HainesMichigan
“I have believed and seen the power of prayer and been the recipient of its power. To pray for our country, our liberties, and for God’s will is the greatest honor I have as a patriot. Because He leads me to pray, I then must follow for Lord knows so much more than I. ‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’ He is the greatest power and without him we cannot win. ” Edna KruegerTexas
“We are quite convinced that we are following God in this COS fight to restore what He led our Forefathers to create on the American Continent. Not every Founder acted for strictly righteous reasons. Surely none were totally righteous, but there is no doubt that God worked His righteousness in them, to accomplish His purposes, for His country, His plan for the world, in spite of human means or intentions.” Paul WestIdaho
We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare.As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.
No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.
Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.
This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.
The treatment is also clear.
The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments.
Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.
I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine.
It’s the only way that we can return the practice of
medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the
heavy hand of a distant, national government.
