No Other Explanation—God Worked a Miracle, as Christian Voters Spoke Loud and Clear
American Pastors Network: Renewing Our Nation Will Begin on Our Knees in Prayer and With a Commitment From Pastors
PHILADELPHIA—Christian voters were a much sought-after voting bloc in this historic election, as Americans elected Donald Trump as the nation’s 45th president last night. Today, the American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) released the following statement.
“When the polls are so off and the pundits get it so wrong and we can see no other explanation for a Donald Trump victory, we can rest assured that it is God who worked a miracle,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “We knew and prayed that at the end of the day, a win—should God provide one—would be humanly impossible and all would have to thank God for His doing.
“The vote of the American people was an overwhelming call for change, a rejection of corruption and pushback against the enemies of Christianity and freedom, such as Islam, globalism and the establishment,” Rohrer continued. “The process for renewal of our nation, however, must be led on our knees in prayer, as we humble ourselves before God and seek His blessing. It also involves a commitment by the pastors in the pulpits of America to once again preach the whole counsel of God and reteach our people that the biblical principles that made America great are the same principles that can restore and heal our nation—one nation under God.”
Rohrer hosts the daily, live, one-hour “Stand in the Gap Today,” the news and commentary radio program from APN that airs on about 425 stations nationwide daily at noon ET. Leading up to the election, Rohrer shared his “Voting Integrity Checklist,” a series of questions he developed for himself to use during nearly 20 years in office as a legislator.
APN recently launched the new “We Will Stand” initiative to help mobilize and encourage pastors to preach biblical truth about all issues, as well as unite pastors in their calling to stand boldly for truth. Pastors can sign the “We Will Stand” pledge and commit to preach passionately, pray fervently, encourage their congregations and engage as a minister together with civic leaders. Information about “We Will Stand” is available at www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net.
APN offers pastors numerous online resources that help clergy choose sermon topics and find information for other church ministries. With some free and some paid resources, topics include abortion, apologetics, creation, the cultural crisis, economics, education, the environment, history, homosexuality, Islam and marriage, along with many others.
The American Pastors Network is the largest, national network of pastors who believe in the authority of scripture; who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to public policy; who are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders; and who are mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process on a non-partisan basis.

The American Pastors Network is a Ministry Program Affiliate of Capstone Legacy Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian Public Community Foundation registered nationwide). APN’s daily short radio feature, “Stand in the Gap Minute,” airs on approximately 290 stations, “Stand in the Gap Weekend” airs on nearly 180 stations and the live one-hour show, “Stand in the Gap Today,” airs on about 425 stations nationwide.
