Find Your State’s Voter Guide!

As a good steward of the God-given rights and privileges we enjoy, Focus on the Family wants to help EQUIP you with the discerning resources and solid research you’ll need before you step into the voting booth on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016 (or before with early voting).

One great resource to consider is a state-specific Voter Guide created by individual Family Policy Councils (FPC) associated with Focus on the Family. The FPC state network operates in nearly 40 states and many of these organizations produce General Election Voter Guides, which include candidate positions on key issues, such as the sanctity of human life and religious freedom.

INSTRUCTIONS: Simply click on this link (or the adjacent image), scroll down to see if there’s a Family Policy Council in your state. If so, click on the hyperlink to connect directly with the state FPC. Should you have questions about the FPC’s website or the availability of its Voter Guide, please contact the FPC directly.

AFTER YOU VOTE: Please post on your Facebook® page a picture of you with your “I Voted!” sticker, using the hashtag handle #Commit2Vote2016, or post directly on our Thriving Values Facebook page. We’ll try to repost your picture on our Thriving Values™ Facebook page, starting Nov. 1!

The daily news is filled with stories of division, violence and despair. American politics is polarized. Leadership is lacking. Change seems impossible. Can you help reverse the downward spiral of our nation?

Dr. Tony Evans offers hope: The solution to our nation’s problems and unrest isn’t out of reach. The solution is here — in each one of us as kingdom citizens.

Be assured our God is greater than any challenge — and He has promised to equip His people, the Body of Christ. In this book, you’ll discover how to respond in faith, in spite of a country and culture in decline. Here is a powerful call-to-action for concerned Christians. Here is a call for unity and restoration. And here is strong assurance that each of us has the ability to do justice, seek truth — and stand in the gap for our land.

Answer God’s call to be a world-changing kingdom citizen.

“I love this magazine! It covers important political issues in a thorough fashion from a Christian perspective, but it’s still a quick read. After filling you in on what’s going on, it tells you what you can do and exactly how to do it. I’ve got my in-laws & husband hooked on it! A must-have for any follower of Christ looking to make informed and righteous political decisions.” —Rebecca B.

FREE: Prayer Guide For Our Nation

As our nation continues on what appears to be a free-fall descent into lawlessness, there’s only one viable solution: PRAYER. And, as Christ followers, we know the first step to seeing our land healed starts with us, the Body of Christ.

LET’S GET STARTED: Please commit to pray with us daily throughout the month of October. You can follow along with us when you download our complimentary guide. Each day helps you get started by focusing on a different topic or need in our culture. And should a friend, family member or neighbor share their concerns with you about this election, why not invite them to join you in intervening on the nation’s behalf? Who knows how God might choose to use you — and them — to make Himself known!

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.— Matthew 7:7-8 ESV
