Find Room 219


In God We Trust 300x225 Find Room 219
Blog post Boomer54 Mark

My wife and I attend our rather large church on Saturday nights, we feel this allows for more room for guests at our 3 Sunday services. Our guest speaker, U.S. Congressman, Louie Gohmert, from Texas shared with us about Room 219 and about the call to America to return to our Judeo-Christian roots.

If you have lately been disheartened by the non-Christian agenda of this current Administration. Specifically, at the beginning of President Obama’s term in office, where in Turkey, he proclaimed that America was not a Judeo-Christian nation anymore. Then take heart that there are politicians in Washington that are committed to protecting our freedom to publicly pray and express our faith in God; and restoring Judeo-Christian principles to their rightful place in the marketplace of ideas.

There is a concerted effort to expunge every vestige of God from government and the influence that the Christian Faith had on establishing the principles upon which our liberties were secured. The Court’s continued bias towards secularism- defined as the rejection or exclusion of religion or religious influence – and against Faith’s influence in public discourse creates a hostile environment for citizens that desire complete freedom of expression in regards to their faith’s role in public discourse and shaping public policy.

Furthermore, this bias has created an environment in public education where the historical facts regarding the role Christian Faith played in forming our Republic has been all but eliminated. The result being a generation deprived of the truth concerning the importance of Faith’s influence in the marketplace of ideas.

What is

In 2005, Congressman Randy Forbes of Virginia began unifying other Congressional Members and leaders to stand against this national threat; believing that through trust in God, prayer, and strategic action we can preserve and protect our religious freedom. To that end Congressman Forbes obtained a strategic room in the Capitol, Room 219, in which Congressional Members could convene before every session to pray for our country. This room is a place where members of Congress meet weekly to seek the face and hand of God for Divine wisdom and intervention in our government affairs.

These Members later formed the Congressional Prayer Caucus – an official caucus of the U.S. Congress – to formally acknowledge the important role that faith in God and prayer plays in American life and history and to stand as a sentinel to guard the right of individuals in America to publicly pray and express faith in God.
