Marching for Life Prayer Warriors

By | Virginia | No Comments

By Dorana Sylvia, CWA of Virginia’s Stafford Prayer/Action Chapter Leader

 

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the love and joy I experienced at the Virginia March for Life. It was refreshing to see so many people in prayer, both young and old, marching with the common goal of celebrating life! I rejoice that I was able to have my three sons and my mother join me on this special day with my Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia family.

 

The Lord moved me to share my testimony, with many at the March, of having once been a late-term abortion ultra-feminist activist. I had believed the lie, yet God had a plan for my life. The common question was, “What made you change?” My response was a simple one, “Jesus Christ and the prayers of faithful Christians.”

 

God strategically placed in my path to get my attention survivors of abortion, children who had been conceived through incest, and rape victims who had kept their babies. How could I ever again advocate for abortion?

 

The people I met at the Virginia March for Life are those warriors who continue to pray for the lost and for God to save and restore those affected by abortion. While at the March, I never heard an insult toward women who have had abortions or were considering abortion. The message was clear: God is love, He is a forgiving God, women are not alone in their pregnancy, and God alone owns life.

 

The Enemy may try to come after our families and our children, but he is no match for my Savior, the Hope of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Concerned Women for America Coordinates Prayer Vigil at White House Condemning Abandonment of Americans, Women, and Children in Afghanistan

Washington, D.C. – The nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, Concerned Women for America, will gather a coalition of faithful female leaders on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, outside of the White House in Washington, D.C., to pray for the ongoing human rights crisis unfolding in Afghanistan.

WHO: Speakers include:

  • Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America CEO and President
  • Charlotte Ponticelli, Former Senior Coordinator for International Women’s Issues at the U.S. Department of State, Member of U.S. Afghan Women’s Council and American Council on Women, Peace, and Security.
  • Mercedes Schlapp, American Conservative Union Foundation Senior Fellow
  • Mariam Ibrahim, Sudanese Religious Freedom Activist, arrested and sentenced to death for her Christian faith
  • Andrea Bottner, former U.S. Department of State Director for the Office of International Women’s Issues and Senior Advisor, Independent Women’s Forum
  • Alyssa Farah, visiting fellow with Independent Women’s Forum & former White House Communications Director and United States Department of Defense Press Secretary
  • Tina Whittington, Executive Vice President, Students for Life
  • Jenna Ellis, Host, Just The Truth at Real America’s Voice News

WHAT: Prayer Vigil for Stranded Americans and Afghani Women and Children

WHERE: Lafayette Square in front of the White House

WHEN: Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. EST

WHY: To lift up the innocent in prayer and demand the White House protect the innocent. The focus of the prayer vigil/press conference will be to demand the rescue and protection of Americans stuck in Afghanistan and safety for Afghan women and children,  particularly dependents of our allies. Concerned Women for America CEO and President, Penny Nance provided the following statement:

“The footage and testimonials out of Afghanistan are horrific. Americans are stuck and women and children are in crisis. Interpreters who worked with us are being tortured to death, Afghani women are pleading for rescue from the Taliban, burning anything that shows their accomplishments, and handing their babies over razor wire to British soldiers out of despair. Women and young girls in Afghanistan will now be forced into a life of oppression. They will face brutal violations of their most fundamental rights and face death, sex slavery, and other grim situations at the hand of the Taliban. Leaving those who worked alongside U.S. troops for the last 20 years behind to face life under the Taliban is surely a death sentence. We must find a humanitarian solution that ensures the safety of women and children while ensuring that America is kept safe. We are witnessing the worst crisis and failure of foreign policy leadership in recent history. Concerned Women for America has a long history of working to protect women and children with a deep focus on religious freedom, educational opportunities, true empowerment and opportunities, and a commitment to ending sexual exploitation. We will not look away. The world is watching, and we will be praying for a miracle to save lives. The Biden Administration’s abrupt departure strategy will impact America’s reputation and safety for generations to come.

Media are invited to attend and asked to RSVP to Jacklyn Washington at [email protected] A mult. box will be made available for approved media personnel.

Fox News Op-ed: Nance: What I learned from FBI’s ‘assessment’ of me, my organization

By | CEO, FBI, National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

Last week, Concerned Women for America (CWA) reported in this press release on the FBI’s unjustified targeting of CWA.

Penny Nance, CWA’s CEO and President spoke out on the FBI targeting in a Fox News op-ed and had this to say, “We should all be worried about the ability and hubris of a politicized FBI to invade and target American citizens and organizations out of favor with those in power … We call on Congress to clamp down on the trampling of our civil liberties using perhaps well-intentioned but overly indulgent rules. The American people deserve better. We demand better.”
