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 Kentucky Legislature

The Kentucky legislature is in session from January 3 till approximately March 30 and consists of 100 House members and 38 Senate members.

Pray for the Kentucky Supreme Court

“The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” James 5:16 (BCL)

 

November 8 was a great day for many Kentucky counties. Election victories across the state offer Kentucky a reason to be hopeful as we look toward the 2023 legislative session in Frankfort with a fresh body serving our Commonwealth.

 

Unfortunately, despite the tireless efforts of Kentucky’s pro-life movement to secure protection for the unborn, Amendment 2 was defeated, and the lives of the most vulnerable Kentuckians once again face great peril.

 

On Tuesday, November 15,  the Kentucky Supreme Court will hear oral arguments challenging the constitutionality of the state’s pro-life laws that protect the unborn from abortion in all cases except the life of the mother.

 

As pro-life Christians, we know that our hope does not rest in the decisions of a court but in Christ alone. We are instructed in Hebrews 14:16 to “approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.”

 

Join me today in praying for Attorney General Daniel Cameron and his team, who is representing Kentuckians and defending the Human Right Protection Act and the Heartbeat Law against abortion advocates.

 

Let us also pray for our Kentucky Supreme Court that they will interpret the Kentucky constitution rightly and determine that the right to an abortion does not exist in the language of the Founding Fathers of Kentucky.
