Dear Friends,

The opening of Louisiana’s 2018 Legislative Session is on Monday, March 12, and Concerned Women for America of Louisiana will unite to water the ground with prayer as we walk in and around the Capitol. It is a strategic opportunity to set the tone of this year’s session.

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Our Prayer Walk will focus on establishing God’s righteousness in Louisiana government as we pray the Scriptures in alignment with CWA’s Seven Core Issues:
Sanctity of Life
Religious Liberty
Family
Protection from Sexual Exploitation
Education
National Sovereignty
Support for Israel

We will pray that the outcome of every piece of legislation will be in line with Scriptural principles.  We will pray for the health and wholeness of the men and women who sacrifice time and effort to govern our great state.

We invite you to join us as we walk and pray.  Please make plans now to attend and be sure to invite a friend.

In addition to the prayer walk, you will enjoy meeting with CWA of Louisiana leaders and other members, learning how to engage your legislators, touring the Capitol, being in the House or Senate chamber as the session opens, watching Gov. John Bel Edward’s opening address and a free lunch provided by one of our generous donors specifically for this event.
