The following news release went out this morning announcing a call for 40 Days of Prayer for the US Congress. Without a doubt the Roundtable has been among the loudest critics of the decisions of this Congress. Holding Congress accountable for their actions is all our duty and we do not shrink back from honestly evaluating the work of this Congress. However, we are called to remember that The Congress is made up of real human beings with real hearts, minds, and eternal souls. So before we go much farther into this year of inevitable confrontation and controversy we are stopping right here, right now, to begin a time of specific prayerful intercession. We invite you to join in the adventure.

American Policy Roundtable Announces 40 Days of Prayer for Congress
Cleveland, Ohio – The American Policy Roundtable today called upon all Americans to lift the United States Congress in prayer for the next 40 days. The call went out via the national radio broadcast, The Public Square®, produced by the Roundtable and aired on over 140 radio stations and translators coast-to-coast.
“Criticism of Congress is high in every city and town, but the responsibilities before this Congress are even higher” stated David Zanotti, President/CEO of the Roundtable. “In the healthcare debate alone, Congress is now facing decisions that will impact every American. These are decisions that have life and death consequences for every household.”
The Roundtable has produced a daily Congressional prayer list to help people pray through the entire U.S. Congress, both House and Senate, in the forty days between May 7th and June 15th, 2009. The list is found on the Roundtable’s homepage at www.APRoundtable.org. Over one-million visitors log onto this site per year.
Individuals, churches, schools and organizations are all being invited by Internet email blasts to participate in the 40 Days of Prayer for Congress.
The American Policy Roundtable, founded in 1980 is an independent, non-profit public policy organization focused on the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The Roundtable produces “The Public Square®” a national radio broadcast discussing a broad spectrum of public policy issues.
