How different would America be if we, Christians in America, consistently followed the simple instruction of God’s word to give thanks for and bless our leaders in prayer (1 Timothy 2:2)? The stakes are even higher than the mere moral condition of modern American society. 1 Timothy 2 tells us that our ability to fulfill the great commission hinges on our praying and giving thanks for our leaders in government. Learn how to pray for our leaders in, “A Call to Pray for our Leaders”!
A number of conservative groups and pro-life leaders are quick to argue that if an Article V “Convention to propose Amendments” were held a doomsday scenario would unfold that would certainly lead to a mass rewriting of our constitution and the ultimate destruction of our nation. However, such dramatic arguments logically beg a question: why did the very founders, so often cherished by these exact same critics, include a key provision in the Constitution that exists as, per critics, a dangerous national “self-destruct” button?
The hypothesis of this research is that an Article V “Convention to propose Amendments,” is a vital part of our constitutional democracy, intentionally included by the authors of the Constitution, and can be clearly understood in light of the very American political thought that lead to the creation of our Constitution. Of the hundreds of amendments suggested, of the few that actually were proposed, all have been proposed pursuant to Article V via the United States Congress—not one has been proposed via an Article V Convention to propose Amendments. However, in the 1980's, under the leadership of Ronald Reagan, this nation came within two states of making history.

Additionally, it is statistically demonstrated that a key factor of pro-life attitudes in Christians is the amount of time spent in prayer. Surprisingly, this prayer factor exceeds the influence of both race and gender.
