Concerned Women for America (CWA) of North Carolina has just launched our annual Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) project. This is one of our favorite projects as we look forward to sharing our prayers and words of encouragement with our state legislators, our North Carolina Council of State, our federal North Carolina Senators and Congressmen, as well as President and Mrs. Trump and Vice President and Mrs. Pence.
The EAL project truly embodies who and what CWA is. Prayer is, and always will be, CWA’s foundation as we petition our most holy God to enable us to be effective in thwarting the schemes of the enemy.
The EAL project impacts our officials in two ways. First and foremost, it ensures consistent prayer for each official. Second, it encourages and builds bridges with conservative officials as well as those who do not normally agree with us. As our humble and gracious prayers are offered on behalf of our officials, and they receive multiple encouragement cards, hearts are changed and encouraged.
Volunteers across North Carolina, representing CWA, will be mailing postcards to the elected officials named above during April, May, and June. Our goal is to plant a seed for God’s Kingdom and to reach the hearts of men and women serving the citizens of North Carolina.
We have been heartened by encouraging feedback we have received. One official shared that he kept one of the encouragement cards in his inside coat pocket and would pull it out when he needed an encouragement that someone was praying for him. We also noticed during a visit to the Capitol that an official had one of our CWA EAL postcards on the wall in his office.
Even if you do not want to send postcards, will you please pray? We know that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
If you would be interested in participating in the EAL project, please contact me by email or by phone at 704-516-0820 letting me know of your interest. I will respond with additional details. We would be delighted to have you join us in praying over and writing to our elected officials.
In Truth and Righteousness,
CWA of North Carolina
