WASHINGTON (NRB) – NRB, the nation’s preeminent association of Christian communicators, urges Christians to pray earnestly for President Biden.
Today, Joseph R. Biden, Jr. was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. NRB CEO Troy A. Miller issued the following statement:
“We earnestly pray for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris as we are instructed to do by Scripture (1 Timothy 2:1-2). We pray that God grants President Biden wisdom and strength to lead this nation.
We urge President Biden to continue the many religious liberty protections upheld by the Trump Administration, including ensuring conscience rights protections for medical professionals, creating the International Religious Freedom Alliance to confront religious persecution throughout the world, appointing a special envoy to combat anti-Semitism, protecting faith-based adoption and foster care providers, and allowing the government to provide disaster relief funding to religious organizations.
We also urge President Biden to uphold the sanctity of human life by continuing the Mexico City Policy, which President Trump reinstated and expanded to ensure that taxpayer funds are not used to fund abortion globally, preventing subsidizing of the abortion industry, ending federal funding of fetal tissue research, and ensuring treatment for those born prematurely or with disabilities.
NRB will continue to advocate vigorously for free speech, religious liberty and the sanctity of human life.”
NRB is a nonpartisan, international association of Christian communicators whose member organizations represent millions of listeners, viewers, and readers. NRB’s mission is two-fold: To protect the free speech rights of our members to speak Biblical truth, by advocating those rights in governmental, corporate, and media sectors; and To foster excellence, integrity, and accountability in our membership by providing networking, educational, ministry, and relational opportunities.
