National Issues: What Are America’s Vital Signs?
While only God can know what is in a person’s heart, the reflections of those views are often seen in his or her words and deeds.
Where a candidate stands on issues gives insight into what can be expected from his or her leadership.
In 2010 The Presidential Prayer Team conducted a survey of its members to determine which, in their opinions, were the most vital issues needing attention in America.
Just as a human body has vital signs that give insight into its current health and future well-being, there are political pulses and heart checks needed for the candidates seeking public office.
The consensus of the subscribers to the Prayer Team’s emails gave clear check points for the vitality of America politically, culturally, morally and spiritually. Those check points are referred to as Vital Signs.
