We are in a David and Goliath moment. The Goliath of big businesses has sent an open letter to the state legislature urging legislators to “do nothing” on HB 25, a bill that will codify UIL rules in Texas law to ensure students play sports according to their sex assigned at birth. You can read more about Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas efforts on girls’ sport here and here.
The third Special Session of the Texas legislature is winding down, so it is critical that the House vote on SB 25 early next week. If our lawmakers don’t act quickly and effectively, their inaction will place approximately 300,000+ girl athletes in Texas public schools 7-12 at risk to compete against biological males.

Please Pray: “Lord, we ask that You would fortify our Texas policymakers and to follow David’s example to have faith in God and stand up against the Goliath of big businesses. I Samuel 17:45 says: ‘You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock.’”
“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time, we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.” Galatians 6:9-10 (The Message)
