Southern Baptists, the largest Christian denomination in the U.S., are putting together a massive pre-election prayer vigil.
Southern Baptist churches will be praying for 40 days before voters head to the polls. The upcoming vigil is slated to begin September 24 and end on November 2.
The daily prayers are asking for: God's guidance in voting, the election of more godly Christians and for public officials to be protected from Satan's attacks.
So far, more than 1,300 churches have already signed up for the prayer campaign, according to the head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Rev. Richard land.
"Our vision statement is an American society that affirms and practices Judeo-Christian values rooted in biblical authority," Land said. "America will be better off if people who are voting are seeking God's guidance."
