Believe it or not, it’s already that time; Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Maine is already getting the Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program set up for the 2017 Legislative Session. We are excited to see what God is going to do this year as we offer up to God prayers and supplication for our state legislators
“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)
We plan to have a packet for each of the 150 lawmakers in the House of Representatives and 35 lawmakers in the Senate. That’s 185 encouragers we will need to cover one for each legislator. These individuals simply commit to pray, send a post card to an assigned legislator once a month, and encourage them throughout the 2017 Legislative Session. Consider getting the whole family involved. It was neat to see how many couples participated last year by each taking a legislator and sometimes their children, too!
As you know most of the lawmakers appreciate our prayers on their behalf, knowing their daunting task in the halls of the Maine Legislature needs it. We have many Christian men and women who have stepped out to serve us in Augusta because they were called by our Creator. It is heartwarming to hear their stories of being called. We must not let them down, but uphold them in prayer and encouragement and let them know we are doing it for all the legislators. Whether a legislator is a believer, non-believer, conservative, liberal, democrat, republican, independent or other, they are in desperate need of prayer. This 2017 Legislative Session, CWA of Maine plans to deliver those prayers.
Please contact us to let us know you will answer the EAL call. We will then send you an EAL packet as soon as the election is over. We will send you the biography of an elected official instructions and postcards. All for free!
Please be praying for the EAL program. Pray that it has a great impact this year on each individual legislator. Pray the funds will come in to cover every one of the legislators.
