“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone –
for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
  I Timothy 2:1

Dear CWA of South Dakota Friends,

More “encouragers” are needed for our Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign for the 2020 South Dakota legislative session. It is our goal for 2020 that not one legislator be left without both prayer and encouragement. Will you help us meet that goal?

Our legislators will be making important decisions on many issues that affect our state and families. Undoubtedly, much prayer is needed to restrain the enemy’s assault on our culture.

This is our 21st year of Encourage-A-Legislator! We appreciate the faithfulness of those among you who have been “encouragers” since our first year.

Will you commit once again to adopting a legislator and praying for him or her daily during the nine-week session beginning on January 14? If you have not participated as of yet, now is the time! Each week you will send your assigned legislator a CWA-provided postcard pre-printed with a Scripture verse or inspirational quote. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service, note your prayers for him or her, then add a postcard stamp and mail the card on a specified date.

Many legislators responded to your encouraging postcards last year with words of appreciation. Your benefit as an “encourager” is that you are energized and blessed to be a part of this effort.

Consider making this a family project in which each member adopts a legislator.

If you wish to participate, please reply by noting your commitment and providing your physical address. Postcards and instructions will be sent to you just prior to the opening of the 2020 South Dakota legislative session.

Help us recruit more “encouragers” by printing this informative flyer and providing it to your church family and friends. And/or forward this e-alert to those you think would be interested.

You are appreciated!
