Prayer Project Right Here in Hawaii

By | Hawaii | No Comments

“First of all, then, I urge that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” I Timothy 2:1-2

It is time to recruit encouragers for our Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Hawaii Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Project for the 2021 Hawaii State legislative session. Many of you have been dedicated encouragers with us over the years. We appreciate your faithfulness.

Now is not the time to grow weary. Isaiah 54:17 promises us that no weapon forged against us will prevail. Prayer opens the keys to Kingdom power and is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us. So, are you ready to pray?!

CWA of Hawaii EAL Project is focused on encouragement and prayer for our state legislators while they are in session. It is a commitment to pray daily for a state legislator(s) and send him/her a postcard every week until the end of the session around the first of May. CWA of Hawaii will provide postcards with pre-printed Scriptures and quotes from our founding fathers, as well as a page of suggested encouraging notes for you to write. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service and note your prayers for him or her, add a postcard stamp, and mail the postcards weekly.

Take Action! If you wish to participate in our EAL project, or have questions, please contact me at [email protected]. When signing up simply provide your physical address, phone number, and the number of legislators you would like to adopt. A packet of postcards and instructions will then be sent to you.

Thank you for being a faithful supporter and member of CWA of Hawaii! You may always contact the state office with questions or suggestions. We appreciate you and all you do to keep these United States of America and our state of Hawaii “one nation/state under God!”

Respectfully,
Barbara J. Ferraro

Prayer Volunteers are still Needed! Join the 2020 Encourage-A-Legislator Program!

By | Hawaii | No Comments

More “encouragers” are needed for our Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign for the 2020 Hawaii legislative session. It is our goal for 2020 that not one legislator be left without both prayer and encouragement. Will you help us meet that goal?

Our legislators will be making important decisions on many issues that affect our state and families. Undoubtedly, much prayer is needed to restrain the enemy’s assault on our culture. Please sign up today!

About the Encourage A Legislator Program:

Our EAL program is one of our most important programs. When fully implemented, each member of our Hawaii state legislature (25 Senators and 51 Representatives), will be lifted up in prayer each week that they are in session and receive an encouraging postcard.  The EAL program is not an expression of political or public policy views. It is a program for encouragement and prayer for our state legislators. The goal is to simply uplift the legislator and to remind him or her that they are being prayed for regularly.

It’s easy! You commit to adopting a legislator and praying for them each week during the 2020 legislative session, which opened on January 15th and ends on May 6.  After praying for your adopted legislators, you need to mail the CWA of Hawaii provided postcard that is pre-printed with a meaningful quote and a corresponding Scripture verse. Simply write a few encouraging words on the card or just sign it, affix a postcard stamp and mail the card.

Are you interested? Now more than ever our leaders need our prayers and encouragement. 

Prayer moves the hand of God in the affairs of this state and nation!   I Timothy 2:1-2 commands us to pray for those in authority, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior …”

We are looking for your commitment today! Please reply by calling me at 808-965-9834 or contact me through email or regular mail, with your name and physical mailing address. I will then send your postcards and instructions as soon as I can after receiving your info.  You are needed!

Join CWA of Hawaii on January 22

By | Hawaii | No Comments

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Hawaii encourages you to join us by the Hilo Community Surgery Center, Wednesday, January 22, in support of the sanctity of human life from birth until natural death – in remembrance of when abortion was made legal all those years ago. There are approximately 25 pre-born babies aborted per week by resident abortion doctors at the “surgery” center.

Act Today!

  • Please join us on Wednesday, January 22, to show your support for the sanctity of life!  Please arrive as close to 8:00 a.m. as possible. Address: 82 Puuhonu Way # 100, Hilo. We will either be standing on the sidewalk by Komohana Drive or in the cul de sac by the driveway that leads to the surgery center.
  • Make plans now to attend and be sure to invite a friend! Consider inviting your pastor and/or members of your church. Your presence there is very important and does matter.

“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”
Psalm 139:13-16

Take a stand for the unborn because life is priceless.

For Life!

Sign Up Today: 2020 Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign

By | Hawaii | No Comments

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”- I Timothy 2:1-4


Because Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Hawaii believes prayer is crucial to revival and restoration of a nation, we are asking you to participate in our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Campaign for the 2020 Hawaii legislative session. We are so excited to see what God is going to do in the hearts and minds of our state legislators as we pray for them each day and encourage them through our weekly postcards.

Hawaii has 76 state legislators (25 senators and 51 representatives). Our elected officials need to know that people like you and me – who understand the power of prayer and what a refreshing word does for the soul – will be praying for them.

Would you commit to adopt one of our state legislators and pray for him or her daily during the sixty-day session (January-April)? In addition to praying for your assigned legislator, you will send him/her a weekly pre-printed postcard that contains a Scripture verse or quote and space for you to write a prayer or personal note of encouragement. The EAL program is never used to lobby and, therefore, is never confrontational. It is simply a great way to lift up those in authority and encourage them in their responsibilities.

CWA of Hawaii has implemented this program for many years with great success.  Legislators have responded with humble appreciation.  Faithful prayer warriors are necessary and needed. Sign up today and we will assign you a legislator and supply you with the postcards and instructions.

Any questions? Contact me at 425-869-1923 or e-mail me at [email protected].

Time to take action: 1.) Fill out this form and send in the form to CWA of Hawaii, 15-682 Puni Mauka Loop S., Pahoa, HI  96778.  Or, e-mail the information requested to [email protected]. 2.) Consider giving by writing a check to “CWA” with “CWA of HI” in the memo line. Or, give online. 3.) Then, encourage others to do the same!

CWA of Hawaii To Host National Day of Prayer Event

By | Hawaii | No Comments

Do you, or someone you know, live on the Big Island? Please join Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Hawaii in Hilo on May 2, for our National Day of Prayer event.

This year’s theme is Love One Another. National Day of Prayer President, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, said this about this year’s theme, “The vast majority of America understands America is broken. And they understand that God is the only one who can fix it. We have an opportunity to create a theme that will engage all Americans. The theme must be biblical, relevant, clear, simple, and understandable. ‘Love One Another’ accomplishes those five things. From the church house to the state house and all the way to the White House, we need to learn to love one another.”

It is time to call down the powers of heaven upon both Hawaii and the nation.

We will be praying for our state, our nation, and our president, Donald J. Trump, along with his cabinet members and White House staff. We will be praying for Gov. David Y. Ige, Lt. Gov. Josh Green, Hawaii Attorney General Clare E. Connors, our state representatives and senators, and our County Mayor Harry Kim.

Event Details:
Date: Thursday, May 2, 2019
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Wailoa River State Park, Hilo, Hawaii
Refreshments will be provided.

Background on the National Day of Prayer
The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and Senate to designate the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. President Ronald Reagan signed it into law on Thursday, May 5, 1988.

Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
