“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
We are setting up our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Program for this coming state legislative session once again. Our prayer is that those who took part last year will be willing and eager to do it again this year and that we will have many new encouragers as well.
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 month to their assigned legislator with encouraging words letting them know that they are being prayed for each day. The 2016 legislative session goes from January to April. 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 2016 legislative session, CWA of Maine plans to deliver those prayers.
Once signed up, participants receive a packet with the name and biography of their assigned legislator, four CWA of Maine 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 Maine.
Sign up today by e-mailing me at [email protected] or give me a call at 207-345-1200. 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,
CWA of Maine
