About the Initiative
“One generation shall praise Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts.”
– Psalm 145:4
Alliance Defending Freedom is dedicated to the mission of keeping the doors open for the Gospel and preserving freedom for future generations. ADF recognizes the importance prayer plays as a catalyst for changing law and culture because without Christ nothing of lasting significance can be accomplished.
This is why ADF has launched the Generational Wins Prayer Initiative: to mobilize and equip 5 to 10 million Christians to consistently and fervently pray for freedom’s future. We are convinced that when the Church dedicates itself to unceasing prayer that not only will we see the preserving of freedom’s future, but we will also experience a great spiritual awakening and societal transformation.
What is a Generational Win?
Achieves a significant victory
changing the law and culture of the
nation for a generation.
Is sustained by deliberate action
so that the victory endures for
generations to come.
- An Example -
Thirty-five years ago, homeschooling was thought by officials in many states to be illegal. Our society did not welcome homeschooling and supported the theory that it should be illegal. Today, homeschooling is recognized as legal in all fifty states. Our society believes that homeschooling is a valid educational option for families. That is a generational win.
These are ADF’s Five Generational Wins:
