“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
With the state legislature beginning this week, our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Project will be in full swing by the end of the month. We need encouragers to pray for our 76 State Legislators, our four U.S. Members of Congress, our Governor and Lt. Governor. Our prayer is that each and every one of them will be covered in pray and encouragement this legislative session.
If you have not participated in our EAL Program in the past, know that this program is focused solely on prayer and encouragement to our state legislators. Participants simply pray for an assigned legislator every day of the legislative session and send a postcard once a week to their assigned state legislator with encouraging words letting them know that they are being prayed for each day. We will do monthly Prayer post cards for our U.S. Members of Congress, Governor and Lt. Governor the rest of the year. The state legislative session goes until May 3. This is not a lobbying effort but a ministry to 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 legislative session, CWA of Hawaii plans to deliver those prayers. If you have participated before, please join us once again.
Once signed up, participants receive a packet with the name and biography of their assigned legislator, and a sufficient number of Hawaii EAL postcards, suggestions to write on the postcard (optional) and the dates on which to send the postcards.
Seen or unseen, prayer always has a significant impact. Year after year, we receive letters of appreciation from the legislators expressing their gratitude for the many postcards of prayer and encouragement. They often communicate how they need and want to be upheld in prayer as they serve the people of Hawaii.
Sign up today by e-mailing me at [email protected], or call 808-965-9834. I will need your name, address, phone number and how many legislators you would like to encourage.
Please forward this on to friends and family who you think may be interested in participating.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Praying along with you,
Barbara J. Ferraro
CWA of Hawaii
