Kirk Cameron Launches 100-Day Plan to Pray for America’s Restoration
By Movieguide® Staff
GROWING PAINS actor Kirk Cameron announced a 100-day plan for the country as President Joe Biden rolls out his plan for his first 100 days in office.
“Rather than waiting for someone else’s 100-day plan to unfold and bite our nails to see what’s going to happen, let’s get on the offense and roll out our own 100-day plan,” Cameron told fans on his new series of Instagram post called “American Campfire Revival.”
Cameron’s initiative comes after President Biden signed over 30 executive orders during his first week as America’s leader. One new policy stands out as problematic to Christians across the country: an executive order that allows boys who identify as transgender to compete in girls-only sports and enable trans-identified students to enter opposite-sex areas at schools.
Part of Cameron’s plan includes releasing daily videos on Instagram to pray for the country.
Cameron maintained that America is built on godly principles and claims that “TV shows and educational curriculums want to completely twist and pervert the true history of this godly nation.”
Cameron added: “People will want to talk about how America was really nothing but a collection of deists and rich people and prison convicts and religious outcasts and adventurers and opportunists, who simply came over stole land from other people, used slaves to clear forests purely for their own gain and then just stumbled across the natural resources of the land, and that is how America became great. Well, that’s not true, not true at all.”
Cameron noted that people have fought for biblical principles throughout the life of the church and America. It is paramount that Americans revisit their nation’s history, Cameron maintained.
“God says it’s absolutely necessary, in order for us to have a new birth of freedom and blessing in the nation, to go back and remember how we lost it in the first place,” Cameron said.
In each of the Instagram videos, Cameron prays and plans to continue to pray each night over the course of the 100-day event.
Cameron has raised controversy over in-person events leading up to Christmas and the New Year.

Actor Kirk Cameron took to Instagram to respond to the vitriolic backlash he received for participating in caroling protests leading up to Christmas.
“It really is upsetting to me to read the comments from people who are saying such evil, truly nasty, terrible things to me and about me and about my family,” Cameron said in a video. “It’s really shocking that people have come to this. If you know anything about me, just my past my, my life, my priorities, what I’m about, you know that I love people and I care about people I would never ever do anything to intentionally harm anyone.”
Cameron made the video after multiple people, including the mayor of Thousand Oaks, California, accused the actor of “un-Christian” and “disrespectful” behavior.
“When I’m out Christmas caroling, I’m not trying to endanger people, I’m outside under the stars giving people hope, hoping that they catch a sense of God’s goodness and his faithfulness and, and that they will be able to use common sense and good judgment,” Cameron said.
