Please Encourage Sens. Thune and Rounds to Continue Their Support for Judge Kavanaugh

By | South Dakota | No Comments

Dear Friend,

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12) 

What sets CWA apart from other organizations? It is our emphasis on prayer and action at the grassroots.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord … and who labors fervently in prayer. The greatest force for change on behalf of our families and country is indeed prayer and the responsibilities that come with our citizenship in a free country. All the resources of God Almighty are at our disposal, and He rules in all the affairs of men, and nothing is too hard for Him.

Stop Now, Pray and Act
Pray: Pray for our U.S. Senators. Pray for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Chairman, Senate Judiciary Committee and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), Senate Majority Leader. Pray that the schemes of those attempting to discredit Judge Kavanaugh would be thwarted. Pray for the Senate as a whole, may Judge Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed.

“The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good. As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. The heart of the wise inclines to the right but the heart of the fool to the left. Even as he walks along the road, the fools lack sense” (Ecclesiastes 9:17- 10:3a).

The Bible tells us “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

The armor of our warfare hangs on prayer and is activated by prayer. “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18).

Act: Contact our Sens. John Thune (R) and Marion Rounds (R) and urge their continued support for Judge Kavanaugh.

God bless you for your prayer and action,

Linda Schauer
State Director

Time to Pray and Act on Behalf of Judge Kavanaugh

By | Hawaii | No Comments

Dear friend,

Balance between both prayer and action is vital for all believers.  James speaks of this when commending heroes of the faith, “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone,” (James 2:24). Let us keep this in mind as we consider the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Time to Pray and Act on Behalf of Judge Kavanaugh
The circus continues with regards to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U. S. Supreme Court.  As you know, his opponents continue to promote confusion and hysteria about Judge Kavanaugh’s character day after day.

CWA CEO and President Penny Nance wrote about Christine Blasey Ford’s recent accusation against Kavanaugh in USA Today: Kavanaugh, too? Christine Blasey Ford’s Account is Missing Key Details of Assault.

Our own U.S. Senator and Judicial Committee member Mazie Hirono (D) has been outrageous in this process, demanding, “men of this country and the men in this committee” need to “just shut up and step up.” This is unacceptable! CWA’s Doreen Denny, Director of Government Relations, had a great comeback to Hirono’s comments, Sen. Hirono Should Step Up for Justice.  (Note that since the writing of this article a date of this Thursday has been set for the accuser to testify.)

Please continue to contact Sens. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) about this nomination, despite their public statements of opposition to Kavanaugh.  Just as with nominations to lower courts, the opposition is attempting to obstruct this nomination by using delay tactics.  If our senators don’t hear from us and only hear from the other side of the debate, they’ll be able to say that we don’t appear to care or have given up on this nomination. Please do not give them reason to oppose President Trump’s second nominee to our highest court in the land.

If you don’t do it, who will?

Take Action:

  • Call and email both of our Hawaii Senators Brian Schatz (D) and Mazie Hirono (D), and politely ask them to confirm the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Hawaii.

Sen Schatz: email and call 202-224-3934 (D.C.) or 808-523-2061 (Hawaii)

Sen. Hirono: email and call 202-224-6361 (D.C.) or 808-522-8970 (Hawaii) As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, please ask Sen. Hirono to both vote for the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh as committee member as well as when it goes to the Senator floor for a vote.

  • Please send this e-alert to friends and family and also encourage them to both pray and act.

Please Pray: “Dear Father, thank You for Your mercy on our nation. We pray right now that You will lead the senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to continue that mercy. Help us thirst for justice and remember its true meaning. Forgive us for perverting it and seeking our own prideful ways, instead of what is truly good and true. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Do You Want to Conduct a Voter Registration Drive at Your Church?

By | Missouri | No Comments

On November 6, we will each have the opportunity to vote for those who best represent our views at the county, state and federal levels. As Christians we want individuals holding public office who will make decisions regarding laws and public policy that build the family, not tear it down. The election ballot in November will have both candidates and issues on it that will need careful consideration by we who want to protect the unborn, definition of the family, religious rights and more.

Deuteronomy 1:13 says, “Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men, and I will appoint them as your heads.”  May we make every effort to do the same.

Have you moved since the last time you voted? Or, have you never registered to vote? No problem! You simply need to do so by October 11 in order to vote on Tuesday, November 6.  Click here to do. Mark November 6 on your calendar.

Are you ready to go a step farther?  Are you ready to make an impact beyond yourself?  Please encourage your pastor to allow you to hold a voter registration drive in your church so the members are both encouraged and ready to vote on November 6. The IRS guidelines indicate that a church may sponsor or conduct a nonpartisan voter registration.

Concerned Women for America of Missouri has prepared a free Voter Registration Drive packet for our members and friends. The packet includes instructions and materials on how to conduct a voter registration drive as well as the materials needed. We suggest churches host voter registrations on the weekends of September 29-30 and Oct. 6-7.

Everything you need to coordinate a registration drive is below except for voter cards that you need to order in time to have a September 29-30 and Oct. 6-7 drive.  The link is below, titled “Voter Registration Application Form.”

If you have any questions and/or would like to host a voter registration drive, please contact me.  I am happy to assist.

Voter Registration Drive Packet:
Letter to the Pastor – Email or bring a copy of this with you when you ask your pastor/church if you can do a voter registration table at your church.

September 21 Prayer Action Alert – Both Faith and Action

By | Washington | No Comments

Dear Friend,

Balance between both prayer and action is vital for all believers.  James speaks of this when commending heroes of the faith, “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone,” (James 2:24). Let us keep this in mind as we pray and act on the items in this Prayer Action Alert.
 
Time to Pray and Act on Behalf of Judge Kavanaugh
The circus continues with regards to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U. S. Supreme Court.  As you know, his opponents continue to promote confusion and hysteria about Judge Kavanaugh’s character right up to the last minute. Concerned Women for America in Washington, D.C., has thoroughly vetted Judge Kavanaugh and is pleased that President Trump nominated him to this important position. CWA CEO and President Penny Nance wrote about the recent accusation against Kavanaugh in USA Today: Kavanaugh, too? Christine Blasey Ford’s Account is Missing Key Details of Assault. Please continue to contact Sens. Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Maria Cantwell (D-Washington) about this nomination.  Just as with nominations to lower courts, the opposition is attempting to choke this nomination by using delay tactics.  If our senators don’t hear from us and only hear from the other side of the debate, they’ll be able to say that we don’t appear to care or have given up on this nomination. Please do not give them reason to oppose President Trump’s second nominee to our highest court in the land.

If you don’t do it, who will?

Take Action:

  • Call, text, e-mail, and write Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, and politely ask them to confirm the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America. Click here for Sen. Murray’s contact information and here for Sen. Cantwell’s.
  • Please send this e-alert to friends and family, and encourage them to both pray and act.

Voter Registration
Consider taking voter registration forms (check your local library for the forms) to your church and setting them up in an area where you can remind people of the responsibility of Christian citizens to vote.  People can also register online at https://weiapplets.sos.wa.gov/MyVoteOLVR/MyVoteOLVR. The registration deadline for the November 2018 election is Tuesday, October 8.

 A Call to Prayer for CWA Members: International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church 2018
On November 4, the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, CWA will join thousands of Christians all over the world in praying for those who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. Will you join and pray with us? As Americans, God has blessed us with a country abounding in prosperity and founded on freedom of religion, belief, and conscience — all of which we enjoy and continue to fiercely defend. But, in our busy and full lives, sometimes we forget that our sisters and brothers in Christ around the world are being persecuted for the same beliefs and endure political, economic, social discrimination, beating, imprisonment, and even tortuous death.

Stand Strong with Kavanaugh

By | California | No Comments

Thank you so much for your commitment to pray and take action on issues affecting California and our nation. Today I ask that you join with me to pray and act on behalf of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is imperative that we do all we can for this outstanding nominee, for the sake of our great state. Because California has some of the most liberal laws in the country, Judge Kavanaugh getting confirmed could have a huge impact on pushing back some of our unconstitutional laws.

As you know it is our Senator that caused much of the confusion around which the Senate Judiciary Committee currently finds itself. It of course was Sen. Feinstein (D-California) who brought Christian Blasey Ford’s alleged sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh to the committee only days before they were to vote.  Why didn’t she immediately bring it to their attention when she received it back in July? Why didn’t she ask questions during the appointed questioning and interviewing period? She could have questioned Judge Kavanaugh during her private interview with him, let along during the confirmation hearings, where over 1200 questions were asked of Judge Kavanaugh.

We would never want to overlook, diminish, or accept the abuse of women in any form. As advocates for women we do not condone any male taking advantage of any female.  Yet, the evidence before us is missing key details, therefore making it more than suspect. Ford may have experienced something awful, but not knowing when and where, conflicting details with the notes of her therapist and having never reported the alleged situation to the authorities in over 35 years, makes her account suspicious.

Please take a moment to read CEO and President, Penny Nance’s response in the USA Today: Kavanaugh, too? Christine Blasey Ford’s Account is Missing Key Details of Assault. Plus, watch her on The Ingraham Angel with Laura Ingraham on this issue.

We must wisely take into account the person accused. Judge Kavanaugh has gone through FBI vetting and has a stellar record at work and in his personal life.  Kavanaugh said, “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”

Until definitive evidence is provable, his impeccable public record of judicial prudence and the preponderance of evidence for his personal integrity requires the continued support of CWA of California for his appointment to the United States Supreme Court.

It is imperative that our Senators know where we stand.  They are getting a lot of kodos for their actions, they need to now hear from us.

Please take action:

Contact both of our Senators.  Respectfully let them know what you think of this situation.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of California.

Sen. Kamala Harris
Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Please pray: Pray for both our senators.  Pray their eyes will be open first and foremost towards the gospel. Pray their schemes to discredit Kavanaugh will be thwarted.  Pray Kavanaugh will be confirmed quickly.

Time to Pray and Act on Behalf of Judge Kavanaugh

By | Illinois | No Comments

Dear Friend,

We are in a spiritual battle for the soul of America!

We are reminded: “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

“Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm” (Ephesians 6:10-13).

Attempts by the Democratic Party, the liberal media, and pundits to discredit and thwart the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh increase with the latest being an accusation concerning an alleged sexual misconduct as a teenager.  I would never want to overlook, diminish, or accept the abuse of women in any form. Yet, the evidence before us suggests this accusation just does not fit with the well-attested character of this man. Read Penny Nance’s excellent response to this allegation on usatoday.com, Kavanaugh, Too? Christine Blasey Ford’s Account is Missing Key Details of Assault.)

For the eight years that Obama was in power, the Democratic Party, knowing their agenda and ideology would not pass muster in the legislature, appointed liberal judges to legislate from the bench.  This is one of the main reasons our nation finds itself in such a quandary.

This nation was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles.  It is grounded in truth, and only by adhering to God’s truth will our nation remain free. That is why the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh and the election of conservatives to legislative offices on all levels is so important.  Having an individual that respects the constitution is crucial; it will determine the direction of our country for generations to come.

It’s time to pray. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord … and who labors fervently in prayer. The greatest force for change on behalf of our families and country is indeed prayer and the responsibilities that come with our citizenship in a free country. All the resources of God Almighty are at our disposal, and He rules in all the affairs of men, and nothing is too hard for Him.

“Prayer is an effort of will.”  ~ Oswald Chambers 

Pray:

  • Pray for our U.S. Senators, Dick Durbin, and Tami Duckworth. Pray that the schemes of those attempting to discredit Kavanaugh would be thwarted. Pray for the Senate as a whole, may Judge Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed.
  • Pray for President Trump and Vice President Pence. Pray that the Spirit will bestow upon them every spiritual gift that is needed to govern our nation.  May they look to God for wisdom, courage and strength.
  • Pray for our legislators. Pray for laws to reflect Biblical principles and follow the intent of the United States Constitution.  For God-given wisdom in legislation and courts. For righteous leaders with integrity.
  • Pray that God’s Will be done in the upcoming elections. Pray for a safe, honest election and that ballots cast will be credited to whom it was intended.  Pray for righteous leaders with integrity to be elected to office.  Pray that Christians will uphold their duty to vote and that they will vote their values, not their party.

It’s time to take action. James speaks of the importance of taking action when commending heroes of the faith, “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone” (2:24).

Act: Even if you’ve already contacted our U.S. Senators, Dick Durbin (D) and Tami Duckworth (D), be sure to both call and email their offices again today.  Ask them to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Let them know that you still support the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh and that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Illinois.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D): email and call (202) 224-2152
Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D): email and call (202) 224-2854

Sen. Collins Deserves Better!

By | Maine | No Comments

Our Senator, Susan Collins (R-Maine), and her staff have been under attack from the far left regarding the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.  My op-ed regarding this issue was published in the Kennebec Journal recently, Senator Collins Deserves Better.

Since that time, the accusation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh has been the left’s latest last-ditch effort to delay and ultimately destroy the candidate’s chances for confirmation.

Both Sens. Collins and King (D-Maine) need to hear from you again.  The other side has made their message clear. It is imperative that our Senators know where we stand.

We would never want to overlook, diminish, or accept the abuse of women in any form. Yet, the evidence before us suggests this accusation just does not fit with the well-attested character of this man.

During his 25 years of public service, Judge Kavanaugh has been vetted by the FBI six times and never has a red flag been raised. Sen. Feinstein (D-California) kept this information to herself from late July until just now. The timing is not coincidental.

Unlike Sen. King (D-Maine), Sen. Collins voted to confirm President Trump’s last nominee, Judge Gorsuch.  Our hope is that she will vote for Judge Kavanaugh.

Please Take Action:

  • Call and email both your senators, even if you contacted them recently. With this new development, it is important for them to know that you still support Judge Kavanaugh.  Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Maine. Sen. Collins’ contact information is here and Sen. King’s is here.
  • Send this e-alert to friends and family and encourage them to both pray and take action on Judge Kavanaugh’s behalf.

Please Pray: Redouble your efforts in prayer for truth and justice in this matter.  Pray with me, “Father, we pray You will protect Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family with Your presence in a strong and recognizable way during these days of extreme pressure.  We ask for truth to prevail and for the ultimate confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States.  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.”

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O, Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).

For more information and help with calling or writing to your senators, please visit Concerned Women for America’s Women for Kavanaugh web page.  

Unless there is more to this charge, we simply should not — cannot — abandon Judge Kavanaugh at this important hour.  You are called for such a time as this.  Thank you!
