September Prayer/Action Alert: Watch and Stand Fast

By September 24, 2019Washington
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Benjamin Franklin gave this advice, “A Nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved.  It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” This quote supports what our Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” America rose to greatness because our Founders built this nation on Judeo-Christian principles – principles that promote and protect individual rights. We must preserve these rights for future generations.

Register Today for October 19 Event: For Such a Time as This
We invite you to attend CWA of Washington’s upcoming event on Saturday, October 19 – an event to equip you to be a 21st Century Esther “for such a time as this.” These were the words Esther’s Uncle Mordecai used to encourage her to stand before the king to protect God’s people. We invite concerned women and like-minded men!

The event topics are the “War on Christians” and “One Nation Without God.” We will hear from State Rep. Luanne Van Werven (R-Lynden) and enjoy a drama presentation by Faith Heroines.  Our event will begin with a delicious lunch, followed by an exciting afternoon intended to educate and encourage you to be on the winning side of today’s spiritual battle to preserve and protect our families.  You must pre-register for the event and to reserve your seat for lunch. The deadline to register for the event (including lunch) is Saturday, October 12. If you just want to attend the event (no lunch), the registration deadline is Thursday, October 17.

Please contact me by e-mail or phone (425-869-1923) for more information and to register for this event.  You may also mail a check made out to Concerned Women for America with “CWA of WA meeting” on the memo line to P. O. Box 143, Woodinville, WA 98072. Cost per person: $25 with lunch (11:00 a.m.) or $5 attendance only (Noon).

Please pray that concerned Christian citizens will engage in the spiritual and cultural battles happening all around us. Pray for our nation to remain “One nation under God.”

We have several volunteer opportunities with CWA of Washington:

  • Do you desire to see our country radically affected through the energized efforts of prayer warriors? Consider starting a Prayer/Action Chapter in your community or forming a social media and email team to communicate CWA of Washington alerts by volunteering as a Home Team Captain.
  • Do you enjoy the legislative process and have a desire to work on family-related and pro-life issues here in Washington? Consider becoming a Legislative Liaison to coordinate our response to legislation through our state alerts, thus encouraging members to write, e-mail, call, and show up to testify on bills related to our seven core issues.

Please contact me by e-mail or phone (425-869-1923) if you have an interest in more information on joining our CWA of Washington team.
