Over the past nine years, hundreds of women and men have participated in the Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) prayer project by praying for and sending notes of encouragement to our state legislators and governor. We at CWA of Georgia have been truly humbled at the faithfulness of our members to take part in this impactful postcard prayer campaign.
We are very excited to be embarking on our tenth year of prayer and encouragement, and we want to invite you to be a part! If you are new to CWA, the EAL project consists of sending postcards of encouragement and a commitment to pray for a state legislator during the 2013 Georgia legislative session. The Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign is not used for lobbying purposes.
The Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project impacts state legislators. It does this in two ways. First and foremost, it intensifies and insures consistent prayer for each legislator. Second, it encourages and builds bridges with the conservative legislators as well as those who do not normally agree with CWA. As prayers are offered on behalf of the legislators and they receive your postcards, hearts are changed and encouraged.
Daily our volunteers will pray for specific areas of need for their assigned legislators. For example they will pray for:
- Wisdom and strength to uphold God’s principles
- Family unity
- Suppression of weariness, depression, and pride
- Wise and Godly decisions
CWA is prayerfully seeking enough faithful volunteers so that each of the 236 legislators will be individually prayed for during the 2013 legislative session (January 14 – end of March). CWA will provide the postcard; all you have to do is provide the stamp(s) and a commitment to pray and encourage.
If you would like to participate please contact Tanya Ditty at [email protected]
Specify if you would like to pray for 1 or 2 legislators. Please provide the following information:
We cannot think of anything more powerful than to pray for those in authority; those who make public policy decisions that impact our daily lives. I hope you will be a part!
