We are seeking intercessors for the CWA of Illinois Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Project for the 2016 General Assembly Session in Springfield.  This is the 100th Illinois General Assembly.

EAL is a program of encouragement and prayer for our Illinois legislators. It involves:

  1. Sending a postcard every month and praying earnestly for a randomly assigned legislator
  2. CWA will provide the pre-addressed postcards that contain a Scripture, Founding Father quote, and prayer.
  3. Participants sign their names and put a stamp on the cards.
  4. Some participants may feel led to pray for more than one legislator. (Just let me know)

Depending upon this year’s response, CWA of Illinois also plans to send postcards to Illinois County Board Chairpersons.

Legislators throughout the nation have expressed gratitude and appreciation for those who have encouraged and prayed for them through the Encourage-A-Legislator Project.

Prayer moves the Hand of God in the affairs of this nation. In fact we are commanded to pray for those in authority.

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior”- 1 Timothy 2:1

If you would like to participate in the CWA of Illinois Encourage-a-Legislator Project, please call 815-297-2918 or e-mail me at
