( --Given the "chaos, anger, and division" in Washington, D.C., and the deceptiveness of the liberal news media, American Family Association President Tim Wildmon is calling on Americans to turn back to God and to pray for President Donald Trump. 

"Like many patriotic Americans, leaders at American Family Association are saddened by the chaos, anger and division in Washington, as well as outraged by the secular Left’s unending assaults against the founding principles of the republic," stated the organization in an Oct. 7 press release.

“This is a critical time for America,” said Wildmon. “We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask the Lord to protect, strengthen, encourage and guide our nation and our president. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God."

"We know that God hears and answers prayer," said Wildmon. "He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, ‘that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:2-3, NKJV).  

"To this end, AFA is asking patriotic and godly citizens to join the pro-family organization to pray daily for America and President Donald Trump," said Wildmon. "Thus far, more than 12,000 have vowed to pray every day for the nation."

The pro-family group sent an Action Alert to its nearly one million supporters, urging them to "pledge to pray for our nation and president."

“I believe that our prayers are the most effective means of stopping the malicious cancer of hatred now spreading across our nation,” said Wildmon. 

The non-profit AFA was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, then a pastor of the First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi. "The mission of the American Family Association is to inform, equip, and activate individuals to strengthen the moral foundations of American culture, and give aid to the church here and abroad in its task of fulfilling the Great Commission," states the organization on its website
