Be a Part of the CWA of Illinois Encourage-A-Legislator Project

Only prayer and action will turn the hearts of our legislators and Illinoisans in 2017!  Here’s how you can help!

We are seeking intercessors for the CWA of Illinois Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Project.

EAL is a project of encouragement and prayer for our Illinois legislators, not an expression of political or public policy views.  It involves three easy steps:

  1. CWA provides 12 pre-addressed postcards that contain a Scripture, Founding Father quote and prayer.
  2. Participants sign, stamp and send a postcard once a month and pray earnestly for their assigned legislator.
  3. Participants are welcome to pray for and encourage more than one legislator.

A special thanks to all those who participated in the 2017 EAL project during the 2017 legislative session.  EAL intercessors sent monthly postcards to Illinois elected officials and members of the Illinois General Assembly, as well as all Illinois County Board and Commission Chairpersons.  We received several messages from legislators expressing gratitude for the encouragement and prayers.

Prayer moves the hand of God in the affairs of this nation. In fact, we are commanded to pray for those in authority.

“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. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” (1 Timothy 2:1)
