We are pleased to announce that encouragers throughout the state of Illinois have answered the call to be a part of this year’s Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Illinois Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program! The EAL packets have been mailed, and 285 state legislators, elected officials, and county board/commission chairs will soon be receiving monthly encouragement cards containing a Scripture, notable quote, and a prayer.

Thank you for the outpouring of support for this incredible project where we pray for and encourage our Illinois elected officials. We are also grateful for this year’s partnership with Illinois National Day of Prayer.

Prayer is important not only for the legislators for whom we pray but for our own benefit. Legislators’ decisions impact our lives and the communities in which we live.

Time to take action:
For those who are unable to participate in the EAL program, we still would love to have you join us in praying for our legislators and governor. Here are prayer points you can use:

  • Safety and Good Health
  • Family Unity
  • Wise and Godly Decisions
  • Suppression of Weariness and Pride
  • Godly Counsel and Sensitivity to God’s Leading
  • Salvation
  • Continued Strength in the Lord
“For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him?” – Deuteronomy 4:7

Thank you for your willingness to pray and encourage!

State Director
