Georgians: Can Prayer Make a Difference? Absolutely!
“The fervent prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
Do you want to make a “powerful and effective” investment in the state of Georgia? Consider participating in the annual Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project (EAL) sponsored by Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Georgia. The program is designed to be simple yet effective as we pray for the hearts and minds of our legislators and their families.
We are very excited to be embarking on our fourteenth year of prayer and encouragement, and we want to invite you to join us! If you are new to CWA, the EAL project consists of sending postcards of encouragement and a commitment to pray for a state legislator(s) during the 2017 Georgia legislative session. The EAL Prayer Project is not used for lobbying purposes.
The EAL Prayer Project impacts state legislators. It does this in two ways. First and foremost, it intensifies and ensures consistent prayer for each legislator. Second, it encourages and builds bridges with the conservative legislators as well as those who do not normally agree with CWA. As prayers are offered on behalf of the legislators and they receive your postcards, hearts are changed and encouraged.
Our volunteers will pray daily for specific areas of need for their assigned legislators. For example, they will pray for:
- Wisdom and strength to uphold God’s principles
- Family unity and peace
- Suppression of weariness, depression and pride
- Wise and godly decisions
CWA is prayerfully seeking enough faithful volunteers so that each of the 236 legislators will be individually prayed for during the 2017 legislative session (January 9 – end of March). CWA will provide the postcard; all you have to do is provide the stamp(s) and a commitment to pray and encourage.
If you would like to participate, please e-mail CWA of Georgia’s state office. Please specify whether you would like to pray for one or two legislators. Please provide the following information: Name, Address, Phone, E-mail
I cannot think of anything more powerful than to pray for those in authority, those who make public policy decisions that impact our daily lives. I hope you will join us!
We are looking for your commitment today. Your packet will be mailed to you mid-January, 2017.
