[Statement] My Faith Votes: As Decision Deadline Approaches, Christians Are Praying President Trump Moves US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

DALLAS — As President Trump’s six-month waiver on a decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel approaches this weekend, Christians are praying President Trump will decide to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

My Faith Votes, a nonpartisan organization that focuses on Christian voters and their interests, mobilized Christians to send a message to the president, encouraging him to move the embassy. Below is a statement from Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes:

“For American Christians, our relationship with Israel is much more than a strategic partnership. Israel is the birthplace of the Judeo-Christian faith that has made America great in the first place. And this same faith is the source of our unwavering commitment to the Jewish people and to their right to live peacefully in their eternal homeland.

“As the six-month deadline for the waiver to move the U.S. embassy in Israel approaches, we are praying President Trump will decide to move our embassy to Israel’s rightful capital, Jerusalem. Doing so would send a bold message to the world that, in a time of heightened international tensions, the bond between the United States and its ally Israel is unbreakable.”



My Faith Votes is a nonpartisan movement focused on motivating Christians in America to participate in local and domestic elections. By partnering with local churches, pastors and national faith leaders, My Faith Votes mobilizes and resources Christians to lead the conversation on the place of faith in culture and politics. Gov. Mike Huckabee serves as the organization’s honorary national chairman.
