Dear Friend,

We are excited to continue our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program into 2019!

Our EAL program is one of CWA of North Dakota’s most valued programs. EAL is a program of encouragement and prayer for our state legislators. It is not an expression of political or public policy views. The goal is to simply uplift the legislator and to remind him or her that they are being prayed for regularly.

This is how it works: You commit to adopting a legislator and praying for him or her daily during the 2019 legislative session beginning in January. Each week you will send your assigned legislator a CWA provided postcard pre-printed with a Scripture verse. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service and note your prayers for him or her. Finally, add a postcard stamp and mail the card.

As CWA of North Dakota’s EAL Coordinator, Karen Anderson, is committed to continuing to oversee this wonderful ministry. She desires to not only encourage our legislators but to also encourage YOU!

Karen’s message to our volunteers: “I am honored to oversee this program. We have received wonderful feedback from legislators. Many have responded to your prayers and encouraging postcards over the years with words of appreciation. Your efforts encourage and build bridges. We hear back from both conservative legislators as well as those who do not typically agree with CWA.  As a part of this effort, I know you too will be energized and blessed!”

Are you interested?  Now more than ever our leaders need our prayers and encouragement. 

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 2:1-2)

We are looking for your commitment today! Please reply by calling me at 701-331-9792 or email Be sure to specify the number of legislators you would like to adopt, your name, address and email address. You will receive your postcards and instructions just prior to the opening of the 2019 North Dakota legislative session early in January.
