After Only 5 Months, 'Pause to Pray' Radio Feature Now Airing on 225+ Stations Nationwide
The Presidential Prayer Team
March 7, 2019

PHOENIX, March 7, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- The Presidential Prayer Team, the national, nonpartisan prayer ministry for America and its leaders, announced today the rapid growth of its "Pause to Pray" radio program, a daily one-minute feature dedicated to praying for a different national leader, which is now airing on 229 stations across 40 of the 50 states after launching in October 2018.

"Pause to Pray" was designed to create opportunities for Americans across the country to come together in prayer for the nation's leaders. It is one of the many unique products developed by The Presidential Prayer team to engage more Americans in daily prayer at a deep level.

Recent stations that have joined the program include American Family Radio, a network of more than 180 radio stations broadcasting Christian programming to more than 35 states.

"Motivating our listeners to pray for government leaders on a consistent basis can be a programming challenge. The 'Pause to Pray' radio feature is a valuable, well produced tool that helps us advance our mission to make Biblically effective contributors to the benefit of society," said Wayne Taylor, General Manager, Mars Hill Network. "We're thankful for the opportunity to partner with The Presidential Prayer Team in its tireless efforts to motivate believers to petition God on behalf of those who lead our nation."

"With each new radio station added to our affiliate network, our message of prayer for the leadership of this country can be heard by an increasing number of listeners," said Jim Bolthouse, President of The Presidential Prayer Team. "We've consistently received feedback that this feature is unlike anything else currently on the radio, and we're honored to have the opportunity to connect people through prayer."

Radio stations can access the free program through the Amb-OS system or make a direct request for the feature online via the program website at

The Presidential Prayer Team will be providing an opportunity for station managers and broadcasters to listen to and learn more about "Pause to Pray" at its upcoming attendance at the National Religious Broadcasters Conference in Anaheim, CA, from March 26-29, 2019 and the Christian Music Broadcasters Momentum Summit in fall 2019.
