Balance between both prayer and action is vital for all believers. James speaks of this when commending heroes of the faith, “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone,” (James 2:24). Let us keep this in mind as we pray and act on the items in this Prayer Action Alert.
Time to Pray and Act on Behalf of Judge Kavanaugh
The circus continues with regards to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U. S. Supreme Court. As you know, his opponents continue to promote confusion and hysteria about Judge Kavanaugh’s character right up to the last minute. Concerned Women for America in Washington, D.C., has thoroughly vetted Judge Kavanaugh and is pleased that President Trump nominated him to this important position. CWA CEO and President Penny Nance wrote about the recent accusation against Kavanaugh in USA Today: Kavanaugh, too? Christine Blasey Ford’s Account is Missing Key Details of Assault. Please continue to contact Sens. Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Maria Cantwell (D-Washington) about this nomination. Just as with nominations to lower courts, the opposition is attempting to choke this nomination by using delay tactics. If our senators don’t hear from us and only hear from the other side of the debate, they’ll be able to say that we don’t appear to care or have given up on this nomination. Please do not give them reason to oppose President Trump’s second nominee to our highest court in the land.
If you don’t do it, who will?
- Call, text, e-mail, and write Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, and politely ask them to confirm the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America. Click here for Sen. Murray’s contact information and here for Sen. Cantwell’s.
- Please send this e-alert to friends and family, and encourage them to both pray and act.
Please Pray: “Dear Father, thank You for Your mercy on our nation. We pray right now that You will lead the senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to continue that mercy. Help us thirst for justice and remember its true meaning. Forgive us for perverting it and seeking our own prideful ways, instead of what is truly good and true. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
Consider taking voter registration forms (check your local library for the forms) to your church and setting them up in an area where you can remind people of the responsibility of Christian citizens to vote. People can also register online at https://weiapplets.sos.wa.gov/MyVoteOLVR/MyVoteOLVR. The registration deadline for the November 2018 election is Tuesday, October 8.
A Call to Prayer for CWA Members: International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church 2018
On November 4, the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, CWA will join thousands of Christians all over the world in praying for those who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. Will you join and pray with us? As Americans, God has blessed us with a country abounding in prosperity and founded on freedom of religion, belief, and conscience — all of which we enjoy and continue to fiercely defend. But, in our busy and full lives, sometimes we forget that our sisters and brothers in Christ around the world are being persecuted for the same beliefs and endure political, economic, social discrimination, beating, imprisonment, and even tortuous death.
