By | Kansas | No Comments

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas is currently seeking a coordinator to oversee our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program. Do you see the value of focused pray? This position might be for you.

About the EAL Program
EAL is a meaningful program of encouragement and prayer for our Kansas legislators while the Kansas legislature is in session. It involves participants praying for and sending postcards of encouragement to an assigned legislator. EAL is designed to provide encouragement to the legislators with no mention of legislation or policy. Whether Republican, Democrat, Independent, conservative, or liberal, the goal is to uplift the legislator and to remind him or her that they are prayed for regularly.

Responsibilities of the EAL Coordinator

The EAL Coordinator prepares the EAL packets of postcards and instructions and then mails them to the EAL participants. She also communicates with the participants throughout the legislative session.

Are you interested in learning more about the position of EAL Coordinator? Contact me at 785-260-5659 or [email protected]. I am happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.

“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.” – I Timothy 2:1-2

Please join me in praying that God will provide someone to fill this rewarding role.

God bless you,

By | Kansas | No Comments

Concerned Women for America of Kansas is excited to report that the Value Them Both (VTB) Amendment has passed out of both the Kansas House and the Senate! The amendment places limits on the abortion industry here in Kansas and keeps the Kansas legislature in control of abortion laws.

The VTB Amendment will be placed on the August 2022 primary ballot. A majority of Kansans respect the value of life, and now we will have the opportunity to cast our vote in support of life next year!

We are very grateful to the legislators who voted “yes” to advance life here in Kansas We are also grateful to each of you who prayed and took action on this issue over the past several years.

Let’s pray: Dear Heavenly Father, we praise Your name today for the passage of the Value Them Both Amendment. You are the creator of life, and Your desire is that each life is protected – from conception to natural death. It is through Your power and You working in the hearts of the legislators that this amendment passed. How grateful we are to You for the mighty work You did in Kansas! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Time to Sign up for the 2021 Encourage-A-Legislator Program
Kansas Legislative Session

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”  – James 5:16

It is time to recruit encouragers for our Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Program for the 2021 Kansas legislative session. We thank God for our wonderful volunteers who have participated in our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Program in the past. I know you made a difference in those legislative sessions. Thank you!

If you are new to CWA of Kansas, EAL is a program focused solely on prayer and encouragement for our 165 state legislators. Your efforts encourage and build bridges with the conservative legislators as well as those who do not typically agree with CWA of Kansas. Your benefit as an encourager is that you are energized and blessed to be a part of this effort.

Here are the details:
Starting the second week in January of 2021, our EAL participants pray for an assigned legislator every day of the legislative session. And once a month, participants send a CWA furnished postcard to their assigned legislator with encouraging words, letting them know that they are being prayed for daily.

This year we are asking participants to commit to the entire session. The session typically runs from January through May 2021. Will you volunteer for this important prayer ministry?

Once signed up, participants receive an EAL packet. The packet includes postcards, instructions, a calendar mailing schedule, the name and biography of their assigned legislator, and 10 CWA of Kansas EAL postcards.

Take Action:

  • Sign up today by contacting Encourage-A-Legislator Coordinator April McCoy by e-mail ([email protected]) or phone (785) 220-4850. April will need your name, physical mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, and how many legislators you would like to encourage. (You may do more than one.)
  • Please forward this to friends and family who you think may be interested in participating.  

Please Pray: Dear Father, please inspire CWA members and friends to become a pray-er and encourager for Kansas’ legislative body. May each legislator be thoroughly encouraged and drawn closer to Yourself as they are encouraged and prayed for daily. All praise and thanks. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kansans: A Few Things You Can Do

By | Kansas, States | No Comments

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 NKJV

So much is happening around us that can cause people to wonder, “what in the world is going on?” We are watching friends and fellow Kansans lose their livelihoods out of no fault of their own; we know people who have contracted the coronavirus, and there appears to be an all-out assault on our civil liberties, especially our economic and religious liberties.

Few can argue the fact that leading up to COVID-19, there was an increasing apathy toward the things that matter to God. Our state and nation have traded the goodness of God for what the world has to offer.

I don’t know about you, but Gov. Laura Kelly’s strong-arm governance model of ruling over businesses, churches, and the citizens of Kansas and recent events such as Luke Aichele, a barber from McPherson, Kansas, who was threatened with arrest for opening his shop in order to feed his family has stirred in me an even deeper commitment to want to make a difference in Kansas and our country.

Take Action:

  • Pray for the Kansas state legislature that will be meeting for a one-day session on Thursday, May 21. Please pray that the governor and legislature will seek to do what is in the best interest of Kansans.  Much prayer is needed for this one-day session.
  • Contact your state senator and representative before Thursday, May 21, and let them know you are praying for them. Some have had sickness and even deaths in their families. Locate your two legislators here. Enter your information in the left panel under Find Your Legislator. Be sure to let them know you are with Concerned Women for America of Kansas.
  • Send this e-alert to family and friends.

Please Pray: Dear Father, please hear our cry as we plead for the opportunity to reopen our state so that businesses can once again be open, and all Kansas can go back to work.  We pray for Gov. Laura Kelly, who seems to think the strong arm of the government and ruling over the people is the correct way to govern. Show her, Lord, that freedom means the ability for citizens to govern their own lives in the safest possible way so they can earn a living.  We also pray for our legislators, especially the leadership of the House and Senate as they come back on May 21.  Give them wisdom and courage to do what is in the best interest of our state.  Amen

Psalm 37:1-4.  “Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;  for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

God is in charge!

Kansans: Tell Gov. Kelly It’s Time to Open the Churches

By | Kansas | No Comments

According to a local Topeka television station, Gov. Laura Kelly announced she will not extend the stay at home order past May 3. She met with business owners to discuss this plan. This is great news!

Regarding the restrictions for mass gatherings, Gov. Kelley plans to be “less restrictive, ” and Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas hopes this includes places of worship. As you recall, Gov. Kelly issued Executive Order 20-18 the week before Easter. Many believe that she singled out churches while carving out broad exemptions for 26 types of secular activities from this gathering ban, including bars, restaurants, libraries, shopping malls, retail establishments, and office spaces.

The U.S. Constitution is not under a “stay at home order,” and the Bill of Rights cannot be quarantined. A crisis is not the time to allow leaders to shred the Constitution. CWA’s CEO and President Penny Nance and CWA’s General Counsel Mario Diaz just published a great piece on this very idea: The Constitution was Made for COVID-19.

Take Action
Contact Gov. Kelly and respectfully tell her to allow churches to reopen as a part of her re-opening of the state.

Gov. Kelly’s contact information:
Phone: Statewide: 877-579-6757; Local: 785-296-3232 | Online contact form

Please join me in prayer
Lord, we pray for Gov. Kelly.  We pray that personal feelings will not enter into her decisions, that she will see the path clearly to stick to what is constitutionally correct, and end this apparent vendetta against religious organizations.  1 Timothy 2:1-2 says, “I exhort you therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”  I pray we will be patient in our cry to You and sing of Your glory as King David did in Psalm 57.  Amen.

Kansas: Introducing CWA’s Constitution 101 Class!

By | Kansas | No Comments

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  – Ronald Reagan.


While many of us are staying home and/or homeschooling, Concerned Women for America (CWA) is providing a great learning opportunity for teens, pre-teens, and adults. CWA’s General Counsel, Mario Diaz, Esq., has created an educational and entertaining series on the U.S. Constitution.

Mario takes us on a journey to understand America’s founding documents and the principles which guard our liberty. Part I focuses on the Declaration of Independence by way of an introduction to the concepts that undergird the U.S. Constitution.

Action Item: Tell Gov. Kelly to Shut the Abortion Clinics!

By | Kansas | No Comments

Why are abortion businesses like Trust Women still operating?

Currently, across the United States, including Kansas, services that constitute essential health care for women, such as routine Pap smears, mammograms, and pelvic exams, are being postponed in order to reduce everyone’s risk of exposure to COVID-19 and to conserve scarce medical resources. Yet, the abortion industry is open for business as usual.

On March 18, 2020, Vice President Mike Pence issued a mass gathering ban exceeding 10 people according to this directive. While many healthcare agencies have ceased their non-essential medical, surgical, and dental procedures, the Trust Women abortion clinic insists on business as usual while consuming Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other equipment that COVID-19 patients need.

Immediate Action Needed

#1. Please contact Gov. Kelly and Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Lee Norman.  Urge them to join other states by closing abortion clinics and redirecting PPE and other medical equipment to our state’s much needed coronavirus response. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Kansas.

  • Gov. Kelly: (785) 296-3232 | Online form
  • Sec. Lee Norman: 785-296-1500

#2. Forward this email to family and friends.

Please pray:  Dear Father, we ask that you move on the hearts of Gov. Kelly and Sec. Norman to seek You in all things, especially with regard to this issue of life.

“Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.”
Proverbs 31:8-9

Thank you for taking action at this critical time.

Choose Life Plates are Still Available

By | Kansas | No Comments

I am writing today to give you a status update on the Kansas Choose Life License Plate project and to ask for your assistance. As a reminder, the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) will begin production and issuing the specialty tag when we reach the threshold of 1000 preregistrations for the tags. We are nearly halfway to meeting the KDOR requirement.

Click here to read more about the license plate project.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas has set a goal to sell 125 additional specialty plate registrations by May 30, 2020. Thank you to all who have purchased the specialty plate. If you have not done so, consider the value to the pro-life movement in Kansas if cars across the state had the Choose Life tags. Choose Life America has this to say about the license plates:

  • All states allow specialty license plates to promote and/or raise funds to support various non-profit organizations within their state.
  • The Choose Life plate is now in 32 states and the District of Columbia and has raised over $28 million for the cause of life and adoption in those states.

Take Action Today! 

  • Print and fill out the back panel of the brochure, or go to chooselifeplate.com, to obtain a Choose Life license plate!
  • Encourage others to do the same! Print off or order brochures to distribute. Go to our website and print off the Choose Life brochure or email us to order brochures.
  • Involve your church! Approach your pastor to find out if you can distribute the brochure in church.

Pray with me that we will find favor in new areas of advertisement. May the Lord provide an increase of people willing to join this effort. Galatians 6:9 says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Thanks for all the help of organizations, newspapers, and individuals who not only ordered the tag but who are promoting the plates. Let’s do it again! The job cannot be done without you.

Blessings,
Barbara Saldivar
State Director

Follow-up on February 19, Day of Fasting and Prayer

By | Kansas | No Comments

Nearly 500 people participated in the February 19, prayer rally for the unborn in Topeka. We felt the presence of the Lord at the rally and committed ourselves to look to Him instead of ourselves to get the Value Them Both Amendment passed.  The House and the Senate galleys were packed with prayer warriors.  At noon we all gathered in the rotunda and prayed.  I had the honor to represent Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas as I lead a prayer for women and babies – the true victims of abortion. To God, be the glory for He put that prayer on my heart.

Update on the Value Them Both Amendment
As I reported here, the amendment passed the Senate but failed to get the necessary 84 votes in the House. However, President of the Senate, Susan Wagle (R-District 30 ) and Speaker of the House Ron Ryckman (R-District 78) are still committed to passing the amendment, as are many senators and representatives.

What can you do?

#1. Letters to the editor on the importance of passing the pro-life amendment are critical. Legislators do read what is printed in their local newspapers (both printed and online). Will you commit to writing a letter to your local newspaper today? Here are some helpful tips:

  • Adhere to the printed guidelines for letter-writing provided by the publications.  These guidelines are usually printed near the column on a daily or weekly basis.  Letters normally should be no longer than 250 words.  Remember that editors reserve the right to edit your letter.  They may edit one word, or they may cut your most important paragraphs.  But don’t get discouraged!
  • Keep your letters simple, direct, and well-reasoned.  Expressing your anger is fine, but avoid hysteria. Be careful to avoid unproven assertions or you will jeopardize your credibility.
  • Cover the topic of the life amendment only.  Do not try to discuss more than one issue, or your letter will lose effectiveness.
  • At the bottom of the letter, sign your name and give your address and daytime telephone number.  Editors will not publish anonymous letters, and most will call to confirm that you wrote the letter.
  • Write while this issue is hot!  Don’t delay writing your letter.
  • Use short quotations from authoritative sources. For background information on the amendment, click here and here.

#2. Please forward this e-alert onto friends, family, and acquaintances.

Join me in prayer:  Father in Heaven, we thank you for our faithful CWA of Kansas members who have been praying, coming to the Capitol, and calling, writing, and emailing their legislators. We continue to ask You to soften the hearts of the legislators who are voting against this pro-life amendment. Lord, we ask that You make a way for this amendment to come up for another vote in this session. Thank you, Father. Amen

Thank you for all you have done, especially the prayers.

Blessings,

Calling on All Prayer Warriors – Pray for the Unborn on February 19!

By | Kansas | No Comments

As I reported in an earlier alert, the Value Them Both Amendment failed to pass the House last week. While we were very disappointed with the outcome of the vote we will not give up!

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas is joining with intercessors around the state to pray of our state and for our legislature. While we were praying together about what God would want us to do, the Lord brought Deuteronomy 30:19 to mind: “I call heaven and  earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  Therefore Choose Life,  that both thou and thy seed may live.”

So, we have declared next Wednesday, February 19, a day of prayer and fasting day on behalf of our state and for the unborn.  We are also calling on 1,000 prayer warriors to come and pray at the state capitol on February 19!

Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, February 19
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Kansas State Capitol, 8th and Van Buren, Topeka

Join me in prayer:  Father in Heaven, we thank you for the favor the amendment has had with the Speaker of the House, the Senate President, and so many legislators.  We pray for those who seek to thwart Your plans in protecting life. We put our trust in You as You are always in control.”

Please forward this e-alert onto friends, family, and acquaintances.

Thank you for all you have done, especially the prayers.

Blessings,

One Step Closer: Kansas Senate Passes Pro-Life Amendment!

By | Kansas | No Comments

The Kansas State Senate passed the Value Them Both Amendment (HCR 5019), moving Kansas one step closer to reversing a radical 2019 Kansas Supreme Court abortion ruling. The amendment was crafted to restore to the people of Kansas, through their elected officials, the ability to limit the abortion industry.

The Value Them Both Amendment is now in the House for consideration.

Last year, five activist judges sitting on the Kansas Supreme Court struck down a 2015 ban on the dismembering of children still in the womb. These five activist judges ruled unconstitutional a law that outlawed the medical “practice” of dismemberment abortion where “doctors” knowingly dismember a living unborn child by extracting the unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus.

For more information on the bill:

Please Join Me in Prayer: Father, we thank you for the favorable passage of the Value Them Both Amendment from the Senate. Thank you for the legislators who stood firm and voted yes on the sanctity of life. We now ask for your hand of favor as the amendment is voted on in the House. “I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.” – Job 42:2

For Life!
