Giving Thanks

By | New Mexico | No Comments

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

 
2022 has been an amazing year of opportunity and open doors. The Lord has seen fit to allow 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 for Concerned Women for America (CWA) of New Mexico to increase in influence through growth in our grassroots efforts by way of Prayer/Action Chapters whose purpose is to educate on the issues, pray over the issues, and act on those issues. Our CWA of New Mexico leaders across the state have received excellent training and are making a difference in their individual communities thanks to your prayers and financial investment in our organization.

 
I would like to share one of my favorite Thanksgiving quotes. It will be my prayer for us all during this special holiday season. “I think that it is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will.” Charles Spurgeon

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 (575)770-7838.

 
Giving thanks for you,

Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project – New Mexico

By | New Mexico | No Comments

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 three-month session.

The New Mexico Legislature

The New Mexico legislature is in session from January 17 till approximately March 18 and consists of 70 House members and 42 Senate members.

Answer the Call

Sign up today to be an encourager—it couldn’t be easier!

Sign up by contacting CWA of New Mexico at 575-770-7838 or by email at [email protected] and provide them with your name, physical address, and mailing address.
