In 2014, our focus was on Media and Entertainment as we mobilized nation-wide prayer into these centers of influence. In 2015, our focus is on Education. The National Day of Prayer Task Force is already at work to engage prayer leaders across America to intercede on behalf of educators, students, curriculum developers, universities, schools, and more. With your help, together, we will watch God begin to radically re-align education in America. It has been 53 years since prayer was forbidden in schools and the results have dramatically impacted our nation. We have moved far from the founding principles that were the baseline for the New England Primer in 1688 and it is time to seek God so that generations not yet born may know the Lord (Psalm 78:6, 102:18). Join us as we unite in prayer for Education.
The new Pray for America Bus Rally Tour III will take our prayer team to campuses from coast-to-coast and we invite you to join with us. Look for details coming soon.
Here is a look back at the Pray for America Bus Rally II:
On September 2, 2014, the Pray for America Rally Tour II began on the east coast and concluded at the finish line in Hollywood, California for The Summons: Hollywood, October 1-5, 2014.

Tour Dates & Locations
These were the designed locations to Pray for America:
Amazing things have happened since we returned from our first Pray for America Bus Rally Tour last September where we traveled through 34 states, praying with over 101,000 people. We have literally heard hundreds of testimonies and personally witnessed an amazing stirring of the Holy Spirit among God’s people nationwide. The church is becoming more and more aware that effective, fervent, strategic prayer, is the first step in experiencing transformation and awakening in a culture that so desperately needs it!
This Year’s Focus
This year, momentum continues to grow, and keeping with our emphasis of praying for the seven key centers of influence, we’re focusing our efforts on the media and entertainment sphere. Like no other generation, we spend a huge portion of our time consuming information and ideas, allowing movies, television programming, news, and advertising – good and bad, positive and negative – to influence what we think and how we feel. Because of the tremendous influence of these messages on our lives, the Pray for America bus took to the road once again, making its way from Orlando, through New York City, Chicago and across the country to Los Angeles, stopping in over a dozen key media cities to focus our nation’s attention and prayers on this culture shaping industry.
This Bus Tour was on a mission to create a wave of prayer from the East Coast to the West Coast and on October 1-5, prayer ministries from around the globe joined us for The Summons, where we united forces in the media-epicenter of the world – Hollywood, California. Mobilizing an Issachar Army, we prayed through the streets, at studios, and with media executives, actors, writers, musicians, producers, and production workers.
