Giving Thanks

By | Colorado | No Comments

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34

 

With the arrival of November and the soon celebration of Thanksgiving all across this great nation of ours, it is only fitting that I express my deep gratitude for you, and our CWA members.

 
2022 has been an amazing year of opportunity for Concerned Women of America (CWA) in Colorado. This open door in Colorado allows us to engage with our elected officials through the building of relationships as a result of prayer, office visits, telephone calls, emails, and work in the field. The Lord has made a way to increase awareness that CWA of Colorado desires to educate on the issues, pray over the issues, and act on those issues. Our CWA of Colorado Prayer Action Chapter Leaders across the state have received excellent training and are committed to making a difference in their individual communities due to your prayers and financial investment in our organization.

 

I would like to share a line from one of my favorite hymns. Andre Crouch sings it so well
My Tribute. “How can I say thanks for the things You have done…”

 

I would enjoy hearing from you during this Thanksgiving season. Feel free to reach out to me via email at [email protected] or give me a call at (303) 903 5283.
 

Giving thanks for you,

Karen Pennington
State Director

Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project – Colorado

Encourage-A-Legislator Program

“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

The Call to Prayer

I Timothy 2:1-2 instructs us to pray for our leaders. Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program offers our members and friends the vehicle to do this in an easy and meaningful way. It ensures consistent prayer for each legislator, and it encourages and builds bridges with conservative legislators as well as those who do not normally agree with us.

 

Whether a legislator is a believer, non-believer, conservative, liberal, Democrat, Republican, independent, or other, they need our prayers. This next legislative session, CWA plans to deliver those prayers.

The Goal

The goal of the EAL program is to encourage each member of the State House and Senate by praying for them on a regular basis and sending them a postcard throughout the legislative session

 

The EAL program is never used to lobby and, therefore, is never confrontational. It is simply a great way to lift up those in authority and encourage them in their responsibilities.

The Commitment

We provide the name and address of the assigned legislator(s) and the postcards, and you commit to praying for your assigned legislator(s) daily, if possible, while the legislature is in session, and then mail an EAL postcard monthly until the conclusion of the five month session.

The Colorado Legislature

The 2023 Colorado Legislature is in session from January 9 till approximately May 8 and consists of 65 House members and 35 Senate members.

Answer the Call

Sign up today to be an encourager—it couldn’t be easier!  Sign up by contacting CWA of Colorado at 303-903-5283 or by email at [email protected] and provide them with your name and physical mailing address. Be sure to specify how many legislators you would like to encourage. They will then enlist you as an encourager and send you a packet of postcards and instructions in early January.

Spread the Word!

Please encourage your friends and family to sign up.

 

Consider making this a family project by involving your children.

Roe vs. Wade is Overturned! CWA of Colorado Responds

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Concerned Women for America of Colorado
Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade 

 

Parker, Colorado – Colorado stands ready to welcome women and unborn children. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Colorado calls on our citizens, members of the Colorado Legislature, and the Executive Branch to strongly support a culture of life that protects all. 

 

CWA of Colorado State Director Karen Pennington, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision:

 

“The Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe. Thank you, Justices, for your tireless work on behalf of women and unborn children. Over 60 million unborn baby deaths later, the Court has finally recognized that states are free to protect life in the womb.

 

“It is up to us, the people of Colorado, to do our part. We must now work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life. Colorado now must stand ready to welcome women and unborn children by providing the support necessary for their wellbeing.

 

“The Dobbs decision will allow the citizens of Colorado to debate and discuss this issue with their state legislators. Decisions about abortion going forward will be made by Coloradoans, not by judges. That is something worth celebrating!”
