“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”  I Timothy 2:1


It is time to recruit “encouragers” for our Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Dakota Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) campaign for the 2020 South Dakota legislative session. This is our 21st year of Encourage-A-Legislator, and many of you have been dedicated encouragers with us from the very beginning. We appreciate your faithfulness.

We live in challenging times. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that much prayer is needed to restrain the enemy’s assault on our culture. Prayer is also needed to help encourage and sustain our state legislators. Here are a few comments we received from legislators regarding EAL:

“Better than gold!”

“It truly is a blessing to learn that our efforts are being covered in prayer!
We all need the grace, wisdom, and discernment that only the Lord can provide.”


Will you commit to adopting a legislator and praying for him or her daily during the three-month session beginning in January? Each week you will send your assigned legislator a CWA-provided postcard pre-printed with a Scripture verse or inspirational quote. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service and note your prayers for him or her. Finally, add a postcard stamp and mail the card on a specified date.
Your efforts will encourage and build bridges with the conservative legislators as well as those who do not typically agree with CWA of South Dakota. Your benefit as an “encourager” is that you are energized and blessed to be a part of this effort.
Click here if you wish to participate in our EAL campaign. Be sure to include your name and physical mailing address.  You will receive your postcards and instructions before the opening of the 2020 South Dakota legislative session early in January.
God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action.
