We thank God for our wonderful volunteers who facilitate our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) project every year. Some of you have been with us from the beginning. Can you believe this will be our 10th year encouraging and praying for our state leaders? CWA of Virginia is known at the capitol as, “The group who prays.” What a testimony!
If you have not participated in our EAL Program in the past, know that this program is focused solely on prayer and encouragement to our state legislators. Starting the second week in January of 2018 our EAL participants simply pray for an assigned legislator every day of the eight week legislative session and send a postcard once a week to their assigned legislator with encouraging words letting them know that they are being prayed for each day. This is not a lobbying effort but a ministry to the legislators. Whether a legislator is a believer, non-believer, conservative, liberal, democrat, republican, independent, or other, they are in desperate need of prayer.
Each year, we recruit over 100 volunteers to help us out with our EAL program, and this year is no different. Ideally, we would have 143 volunteers to cover 40 Senators, 100 Delegates, Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General. Will you volunteer for this inspiring ministry?
Once signed up, participants receive a packet near the end of December or beginning of January. The packet includes instructions, the name and biography of their assigned legislator, and eight CWA of Virginia EAL postcards.
Year after year, we receive many letters of appreciation from the legislators expressing their gratitude for the many postcards of prayer and encouragement they received.
Sign up today by e-mailing me at [email protected] or call me at 434-525-6705. I will need your name, address, phone number, and how many legislators you would like to encourage.

Praying along with you,
CWA of Virginia
