2008 Election T-shirts Inspire Prayers for America

BERRYVILLE, Arkansas, July 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- Vic Kennett, CEO/President of Kerusso, the premier producer of Christian-themed apparel in the U.S., has announced the start of the Pray-Vote-Pray campaign, seeking to raise awareness of the privilege of asking God for wisdom, our duty to vote, and our biblical admonition to pray for our leaders.


The 2008 US Presidential election race is building toward one of the most dramatic elections in recent history. The next President will have the opportunity to set direction on such critical issues as conflict in Iraq and the Middle East, Supreme Court justice nominations, the economy and so many other national topics.


Christians are being encouraged by church leaders nationwide to PRAY for the country, VOTE their conscience, and then PRAY for those in authority over them. Pray-Vote-Pray t-shirts reinforce this timely message and are available at Christian and general market retailers nationwide, just in time for the national political party conventions and the ramp-up to the general election in November.


"As Christians we have the privilege, responsibility, and a command from the Lord to PRAY," says Kerusso CEO/President Vic Kennett. "Remember to pray for wisdom in your voting decisions. Prayer doesn't end at the polling booth; it's just the beginning."


"We want to document these prayers, and we invite people to visit our brand-new website," Kennett continues, "where they can post or e-mail their prayers for our country. When we hit 10,000 posted prayers we will deliver these to the Presidential candidates and drive home the point that there are praying voters who are concerned about the future of our country."


"'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil,' a philosopher once wrote, 'is for good men to do nothing'," Kennett concludes. "This is a good reminder for today's Christian to do good, and vote for righteousness, so that this nation can continue to be a great nation."

CEO/President Vic Kennett founded Kerusso, the premier producer of Christian apparel, in 1987. Vic not only has a global vision, but puts work to his faith in his hometown of Berryville, Arkansas, where Kerusso employs more than 120 people and is a major contributor to the local economy.
