CALLING THE STATE TO PRAYER FOR MARRIAGE
Marriage is on trial…for real. Are you ready?
On April 28, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on whether states have the right to define and recognize marriage exclusively as the unique relationship between one man and one woman.
Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council are alone in our public defense of marriage. While we wish that were different, it’s OK. We know we speak for tens of thousands of people across the state who share our belief and who stand with us.
We know there’s a great deal of confusion and fear. And we’re working to change that. It takes time and money—but it must happen.
However, right now what can and must be done quickly and without major financial commitment is to call the state to prayer for April 28. We are urging individuals, families, and churches to join with us in concentrated, focused, intentional prayer between now and the hearing.

- Pray that God will rule and over-rule in the hearts and minds of the Supreme Court justices: Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Anthony Kennedy, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan. Court observers say this decision will very likely come down to how Justice Kennedy and Chief Justice Roberts vote.
- Pray for the attorneys who are defending God’s plan for marriage—that they will have strength, health, wisdom, the very best arguments presented in the very best way, insight, courage, and appropriate boldness.
- Pray that God will confuse the minds and the words of those attorneys who are arguing to redefine marriage.
- Pray that church leaders all across the country will speak up knowledgeably and wisely on this issue, helping their people to understand this is not a political issue but a biblical issue.
In the absence of any elected official or any ministry leader calling the state to prayer, we are honored to do so. At the end of this, God may choose to allow His institution of marriage to be dishonored in our country—or He may because of the persistent and passionate prayers of His people give us yet more grace. Regardless of the outcome, our responsibility as Christians is to faithfully pray. Will you join us?
