The Presidential Prayer Team, a spiritual-warfare website out of Scottsdale, Arizona, claims to be nondenominational and nonpartisan. They boast an "honorary committee" including two chairpersons, Franklin Graham (Billy Graham's son) and Joni Eareckson Tada. The remainder of the committee includes many familiar names like John Ankerberg, Rev. Nicky Cruz (David Wilkerson's best-known convert), sappy Christian Rock singer Michael W. Smith, and televangelist James Robison.

The site went up late in 2001 after George W. Bush took office and after 9/11. The mission statement reads, in part:

"Since 2001, The Presidential Prayer Team has been the source millions of Americans have turned to for encouragement and inspiration to pray for America, our President, our national leaders and our Armed Forces. We are a national ministry dedicated to encouraging, inspiring and practicing PRAYER for our President, nation's leaders and troops."

It was initially illustrated with such disgustingly propagandistic imagery as artists' renditions of the ghosts of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln laying their hands on the shoulders of George W. Bush with all three in prayer.

Not to be accused of being a partisan site whose primary purpose was to glorify George W. Bush or anything like that, the site remained up after Barack Obama took office in 2009, but with noticeably toned-down content. The prayers for God to bless the president mysteriously disappeared, as did the drawings of dead ex-presidents laying their hands on the current president to guide his wisdom. Instead, we were treated to secure-the-border tripe like "Father, our nation's borders need protection. We are saddened by the loss of a child's life and the loss of others as they attempt to cross the heated deserts. We pray for wisdom on the part of our Border Patrol. We pray against the evils of the Mexican drug cartels. Amen."

The site previously included a "prayer wall" where anyone could post their prayer, and others could click a button saying "I also prayed" if they agreed with or prayed that prayer. At least seven occurrences of Psalm 109:8 ("Let his days be few, and let another take his office") have been posted, and the site doesn't seem to show any inclination to filter or remove such postings of imprecatory prayer directed at President Obama.

Since Donald Trump took office in 2017, the team naturally went back to supporting the President, though Trump still needs to be added to the prominent places on the site that Bush had been on.
