‘My Faith Votes’ Launches ‘Think Biblically’ Video Series Designed to Bring Biblical Clarity

“According to a recent national survey, 6 out of 10 evangelicals said their faith did not influence their vote in the 2022 midterm elections. Pair that with recent Barna research that found only 4% of Americans hold a Biblical worldview and see that Christians are in desperate need of Biblical clarity on issues that matter, now, before secularism fills the void Christians left in politics and culture. My Faith Votes, a ministry committed to mobilizing Christians to engage in every election, national and local, has a desire to see an America where Biblical truths are restored in our communities and nation.” read more at My Faith Votes


  • To better equip and educate Christian voters ahead of the November election, My Faith Votes is thrilled to launch Think Biblically to bring biblical clarity, anchoring Christians with biblical truth and giving guidance on how to apply that in the public square. This free and engaging video series has participants watch the videos, engage with discussion guides, and gain an understanding of how their views on cultural issues align with a Biblical worldview. Think Biblically was designed with churches, small groups, and families in mind.
  • The six sessions focus on a key cultural topic and are taught by an expert who unpacks the issues Christians will face in culture and at the ballot box and helps them view these issues through a Biblical perspective. The modules include:
  • Think Biblically about Worldview with Dr. R. Albert Mohler
  • Think Biblically about Justice with Voddie Bauchum
  • Think Biblically about Sanctity of Life with Abby Johnson
  • Think Biblically about Politics with Dr. Jeff Myers
  • Think Biblically about Socialism with Todd Wagner
  • Think Biblically about Gender and Sexuality with Dr. Christopher Yuan
  • It takes approximately 45 minutes to watch and discuss each module, but participants are encouraged to view it at their own pace. Think Biblically can be watched on a mobile device or computer or projected onto a larger screen so that groups can watch the videos together.


Lord, thank You for Your immutable Word and the truths that it contains. Your Word gives us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3), so we pray for the daily resolve to pursue it, read it, study it, believe it, marinate in it, be filled with it, be shaped by it and stand boldly for it. May Your Word guide our thoughts and actions every day, including in the voting booth.


Think Biblically is free for a limited time. Sign up today at and get started. Be sure to share with others as well!

Trump Becomes First Former President to be Convicted of Crime

“A Manhattan jury found former President Donald Trump guilty on all counts in his hush money trial and made him the first former U.S. president convicted of a crime. The verdict on 34 charges, reached after deliberating for 1 1 hours over two days, means Mr. Trump will campaign against President Biden as a convicted felon.” read more at the Washington Times


  • The former president will be sentenced on July 11, four days before the Republican National Convention. It’s important to note that the Constitution does not prohibit a convicted felon from running for and serving as president. Trump plans to appeal, and his case may even end up before the Supreme Court. Some are calling the jury’s decision a victory for the rule of law, while others call it a contortion of the law. Christians should look to the Bible for standards of justice; among which are impartiality (Lev. 19:15) and truth (Zech. 8:16).
  • Today, we are just five months away from Election Day. My Faith Votes’ CEO Jason Yates stated, “[W]e are in the same position we were at the start of [last] week - either Donald Trump or Joe Biden will be elected President of the United States in November. The core issues, the candidates, and our focus remain unchanged.”
  • Consider the rest of Jason’s exhortation: “It’s natural to feel the urge to search for some way out of the current political turbulence, but the reality is we are in a battle that is not right vs. left but good vs. evil, and we must boldly persevere and stay in the fight to forge a new way forward. As Christians, we are called to be the light in this dark world. That begins with unceasing prayer for our nation, and it calls for an unswerving commitment to put faith into action and vote for the future prosperity of our country in November.”


“Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.” (Prov. 28:5) Lord, reveal Your truth and righteousness to me as I seek You. Use my actions, including my votes, to further justice and uprightness in this nation for the good of my neighbors. Thank You that I can always trust in Your sovereignty and goodness.

Texas Supreme Court Upholds Near-total Abortion Ban

“The Texas Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Friday to uphold the state’s near-total abortion ban, denying claims that the law risks the lives of Texans with severe pregnancy complications. ‘Texas law permits a life-saving abortion,’ the majority opinion written by Justice Jane Bland reads. ‘The law permits a physician to intervene to address a woman’s life-threatening condition before death or serious physical impairment are imminent.’” read more at the Washington Examiner


  • The court’s ruling exposes the misinformation that pro-life laws endanger women. The mother who filed this lawsuit was endangered by a medical complication and lack of intervention, but the court found the fault to be with her doctors, not the law. The Charlotte Lozier Institute has reviewed every strong pro-life state law and found that, as of September 2023, “each law reviewed does not prevent mothers from receiving the medical care necessary” to save their lives.
  • Many forget that abortion carries risks for women. The Supreme Court is expected to decide this month whether the FDA was wrong to abolish some restrictions on abortion pills that were meant to protect the mother’s health and life. We interviewed a doctor last year who personally treated many women for complications from the abortion pill regimen. Even if it carried zero risks for the mother, abortion is deadly for the unborn child.
  • According to one estimate, only 0.3% of abortions are done because of “risk to the woman’s life or a major bodily function.” Over 95% are performed for “elective and unspecified reasons.” Many voters support abortion because they think it is a woman’s right. Point people to resources like the Intersect that spread the truth and help them see the humanity of the babies we are called to protect (see Prov. 24:11-12, and Gal. 1:15).


Oh Lord, our hearts ache for the women who have lost their children, and the women who have had abortions. Comfort them, Father. Forgive our nation for not seeing every child as Your gift. Help us to love them as we love ourselves. In Jesus’ name, amen.


Your elected officials need a reminder to protect, or continue protecting, life. Send a message to your representatives in Congress, your state legislators, and your Governor, and let them know that you stand in support of life and urge them to do the same. Then share this with your friends, family, and church community.

Week of Ceremonies for D-Day’s 80th Anniversary Kicks Off with Parachute Jump Over Normandy

“Parachutists jumping from World War II-era planes hurled themselves Sunday into now peaceful Normandy skies where war once raged, heralding a week of ceremonies for the fast-disappearing generation of Allied troops who fought from D-Day beaches 80 years ago to Adolf Hitler's fall, helping free Europe of his tyranny.” read more at PBS


  • Our National Spokesperson, Lt. Col Allen West (Ret.) is jumping into Normandy drop zones on the 5th and 7th of June in commemoration of what our brave Paratroopers did eighty years ago. He said this: “Those soldiers had a clear mission then, and we, too, have a clear mission today — to put God and faith back at the center of our culture. Our cultural D-day is coming. It is time for us to hit the beaches and the drop zones. And to continue to fight for the principles and values that our faith is rooted in. We cannot allow the evils that we see taking place in America to fundamentally change our nation’s Judeo-Christian faith heritage. Today we must remember not just those men and women who served, but also remember that we have a call to service as well. Our D-day is coming, and we need to be ready.”
  • 80 years ago, D-Day was covered in prayer. Those on the home front bowed in prayer. Those in leadership, including the President, beseeched Almighty God through public prayer. Those leading on the battlefield called upon the Lord for His special providence. Today, let’s commit to pray for our nation, for freedom to be preserved, for our trust to be placed in God in these turbulent times. May we have the courage necessary to stand in our time – courage like that of those who stormed the cliffs and beaches at Normandy eighty years ago.


On June 6, 1944, President Franklin Roosevelt called the nation to “devote themselves in a continuance of prayer” for the soldiers involved in D-Day. Here’s an excerpt: “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity….They will need Thy blessings.…Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.”


Stop right now and take 80 seconds to pray for our nation. Then commit to praying for our nation every day. Prayer is powerful!

My Faith Votes— is a ministry that motivates, equips, and activates Christians in America to vote in every election, transforming our communities and influencing our nation with biblical truth.

My Faith Votes is on a mission to change this statistic by helping Christians act on their faith and vote in every election. When we pray unceasingly for our nation, think biblically about the issues, and vote consistently in every election the impact of Christians taking action from the local to the state and federal level will be unprecedented.
