The efforts of special interest groups increasingly are pressuring members of Congress to pass legislation that is not in the best interests of our nation.

The National Association of Evangelicals therefore authorizes officers and staff to prepare proper items of communication on behalf of the National Association of Evangelicals to be sent to every member of Congress and which will embody the following:

1. Recognition and understanding of the pressures to which our elected representatives are exposed.

2. Our conviction that governments are ordained of God and thus we pledge the prayers of millions of evangelical Christians on their behalf as they attempt to carry out their constitutional responsibilities.

3. Our belief that the problems facing our country demands decision based on moral principles and that only by resolutely following such a course of action can we prevent what we believe to be an inevitable breakdown in society as we have known it.
