What Sets Us Apart? Prayer and Action! Learn More.

What sets CWA apart from other organizations?
Our emphasis on prayer and action at the grassroots.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord …and who labors fervently in prayer. The greatest force for change on behalf of our families and country is indeed prayer and the responsibilities that come with our citizenship in a free country. All the resources of God Almighty are at our disposal, and He rules in all the affairs of men, and nothing is too hard for Him.

The essential balance between the two 

One only needs to read or listen to a daily news report or social media to recognize the destruction that is taking place.  Whether it be the increased violence in America, the rabid assault on the family, or the barrage of attacks on the leaders God has placed over us, we need to execute the power of prayer and then take the necessary action to back up our convictions.
 
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” (2:24).
 
These elements are crucial to restoring our states and nation and to preserving our families. Truly, our 400+ Prayer/Action Chapters and Home Teams nationwide are the lifeblood of Concerned Women for America.

So how can you make a difference?

CWA’s Prayer/Action Chapters and Home Teams provide the perfect vehicle for you to stay engaged in local, state and federal policies as part of a united prayer and action network.
 
Ephesians 6: 18 and 20 provide one of the Scriptural foundations for Prayer/Action Chapters: “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints … for which I am an ambassador in chains, that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Prayer/Action chapters enable members to:

  • Be alert and informed on the issues (Ephesians 6:18b);
  • Pray about these issues (Ephesians 6:18a);
  • Act on those issues (Ephesians 6:20).

It’s easy to become a CWA Prayer/Action Chapter Leader or Home Team Captain. Simply join CWA if you’re not already a member and submit a leadership application. Upon approval of your application, we will send instructional materials to you. I will provide training and help prepare you to become the confident leader of a successful Prayer/Action Chapter.

Here’s what Prayer/Action Chapter Leaders from around the country have said:
 
“I was just praying about the next thing God wanted me to do, and I know that it is with CWA. He has made that very clear.  I believe the time is narrowing when He will return, and we must do everything within His will to work His plan.”
 
“It is an exciting time to make positive change. … I’m inspired, energized and full of hope by the unequivocal voice of the country.  It’s time for action.”
 
“I believe that this election let us know how important it is for Christians to stay involved. The Lord has been persistent in His message to me. My argument was time, but He has allowed me to see that this is a priority.  We must preserve our Christian nation for future generations.”
 
Remember, your prayers, personal involvement, and action are vital to the future of our children and of our nation.

“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Do you want to make a “powerful and effective” investment in the state of Georgia? Consider participating in the annual Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Prayer Project sponsored by Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Georgia.  The program is designed to be simple, yet effective, as we pray for the hearts and minds of our legislators and their families.

We are very excited to be embarking on our fifteenth year of prayer and encouragement, and we want to invite you to join us! If you are new to CWA, the EAL project consists of sending postcards of encouragement and a commitment to pray for a state legislator(s) during the 2018 Georgia legislative session. The EAL Prayer Project is not used for lobbying purposes.

The EAL Prayer Project impacts state legislators in two ways. First and foremost, it intensifies and ensures consistent prayer for each legislator. Second, it encourages and builds bridges with the conservative legislators, as well as those who do not normally agree with CWA. As prayers are offered on behalf of the legislators, and as they receive your postcards, hearts are changed and encouraged.

CWA is prayerfully seeking faithful volunteers so that each of the 236 legislators will be individually prayed for during the 2018 legislative session, which begins January 8 and continues through March. CWA will provide the postcard. All you have to do is provide the stamps and a commitment to pray and encourage.

If you would like to participate, please e-mail CWA of Georgia’s state office. Specify whether you would like to pray for one or two legislators and provide your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.

I cannot think of anything more powerful than praying for those in authority, as they are responsible for making policy decisions that impact our daily lives. This is a great project for churches, homeschoolers, women’s groups, and more!  I hope you will join us!  

We are looking for your commitment today. Your packet will be mailed to you this January.

Can Prayer Make a Difference? Absolutely!

EAL postcard“The fervent prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16

Do you want to make a “powerful and effective” investment in the State of Georgia? Consider participating in the annual Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project sponsored by Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Georgia.

We are very excited to be embarking on our thirteenth year of prayer and encouragement, and we want to invite you to be a part! If you are new to CWA, the EAL project consists of sending postcards of encouragement and a commitment to pray for a state legislator during the 2016 Georgia legislative session. The Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign is not used for lobbying purposes.

The Encourage-A-Legislator Prayer Project impacts state legislators. It does this in two ways. First and foremost, it intensifies and ensures consistent prayer for each legislator. Second, it encourages and builds bridges with the conservative legislators as well as those who do not normally agree with CWA. As prayers are offered on behalf of the legislators and they receive your postcards, hearts are changed and encouraged.

Daily our volunteers will pray for specific areas of need for their assigned legislators. For example they will pray for:

  • Wisdom and strength to uphold God’s principles
  • Family unity
  • Suppression of weariness, depression, and pride
  • Wise and Godly decisions

CWA is prayerfully seeking enough faithful volunteers so that each of the 236 legislators will be individually prayed for during the 2016 legislative session (January 11 – end of March). CWA will provide the postcard; all you have to do is provide the stamp(s) and a commitment to pray and encourage.

If you would like to participate, please e-mail CWA of Georgia’s state office. Specify if you would like to pray for 1 or 2 legislators. Please provide the following information:

Name
Address

We are looking for your commitment today. Your packet will be mailed to you mid-January, 2016.

We cannot think of anything more powerful than to pray for those in authority; those who make public policy decisions that impact our daily lives. I hope you will be a part!
