In 2004, while in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Bishop Dante Veluz established the Philadelphia Christian Leaders Fellowship (PCLF) which
was committed to regularly pray For the leaders in the Body of Christ and the government, particularly the US President. The Holy Spirit then prompted him to do
the same in the Philippines and tus established the Presidential Intercessors Network (PIN) to pray for the President of the Philippines, the other government
officials as well as the whole nation. He then designated the Jesus, the Heart of Missions Team (JHMT), through Ptr. Raquel Sto. Domingo to spearhead PIN in the
Philippines, with him as the Founding Chairman, with the GOALS of
Establishing a National Prayer Movement for the government with the specific task to pray for the President, the Vice-President, the Cabinet members, the other
branches of the government and local government offices nationwide.
Establishing a daily or weekly Prayer Watch at Malacañang Palace, the Senate and the Supreme Court and other Courts and local governemnt offices nationwide.
Establishing a daily prayer chain among the churches, concerned groups and individuals and through an online website and the social media for PIN worldwide.
Conducting PIN Prayer & Intercession Conferences & Christian Leaders Summit meetings nationwide amd overseas upon request.
Ptr. Raquel lost no time and so launched the Presidential Intercessors Network at the Kabayan Hotel on July 15, 2004, together with
with partner churches who committed to pray daily for then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, the Vice-President, branches of government and all other
government officials. That same year and the year after, PIN held several Prayer Seminars in different places to rally and raise up intercessors to pray for the
leaders of the land.
With the hand of God, through former Sec. Maria Isabel Gonzales Tobias, PIN was given a prayer room at the Executive Building in Malacañang Palace and
was therefore closer to the subject of its prayers - the President.
In December of 2007, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo accepted PIN's invitation to be personally prayed for during the Prayer Camp in Iba, Zambales where
the network of churches gathered, prayed and encouraged the President and her team of government officials. During the term of President Benigno Aquino III,
PIN was also given the oppportunity to regularly pray for the President in front of Malacañang Palace at the church of Commissioner-Butch Belgica.
Today, at another crucial time in Philippine history, PIN is renewing its commitment to earnestly pray for President Rodrigo Duterte, his Vice President,
his Cabinet, the Senators, the Congressmen, the Court Judges and all other local officials of the land. We pray that our officials, especially our
President will submit himself to the guidance of the Almighty God, so that God can use him our leaders to effect change in our society and the nation as a whole.
