Concerned Women for America of Virginia participated in the February 13, March for Life in Richmond. Forty-two busses and an untold number of cars drove in for the event. Turnout estimates ran from 1,000 to 2,500.
Prior to the rally and march, we visited legislators. This session has been difficult for our like-minded legislators, and our purpose for the day was to be an encouragement. We prayed with Delegates Byron, Walker, and Austin, and Sen. Suetterlein. We spoke briefly with Delegate Gilbert but missed seeing Sen. Newman. At each office, we prayed Colossians 1:9-12 over our legislators.
“For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.”
