Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

The Faith & Liberty Monday Report

Jul 25, 2022

It was a relatively quiet week near our Ministry Center in the nation’s capital, for which we are thankful. Although the pro-abortion protests outside the Supreme Court have subsided, the battleground for life in the womb has moved from the Court to Congress and to the states.

Faith & Liberty has always stood for the lives of the unborn and will continue to do so. Knowing that the enemy of our souls seeks to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10), we won't let our guard down in this quest for life. We are ever aware of the wiles of the devil (Eph. 6:11).

We are thankful, too, for the opportunity to set apart some time to spend with the Lord and each other in our upcoming Prayer Retreat. Truly, we have many serious concerns for our country to bring to the Lord as Faith & Liberty team members join in prayer and fasting. We will also be thanking God and praying for YOU. What a blessing you are!

MONDAY RECAP
  • Our Bible studies continue to draw congressional staffers who are growing in their understanding and application of the Word of God. This week was no exception!

  • Aglow International Prayer Teams have continued to visit the Ministry Center, praying for our city, our team and for our ministry on Capitol Hill

  • Peggy Nienaber participated in the final International Religious Freedom Summit Steering Committee meeting to recap the summit.  The meeting summed up with overviewing outreach to bring awareness to the ongoing persecution we as Christians face in this country.

  • Peggy Nienaber met and prayed with congressional staffers, spending time getting to know and encourage them.

COMING SOON

  • Faith & Liberty will host congressional staffers and interns for a 24-hour prayer event at the Ministry Center. We will pray for our nation, God’s guidance, unity and peace.

  • Plans are in the works to honor and thank the police who serve on Capitol Hill at the upcoming U.S. Capitol Police Recognition Breakfast.

  • Faith & Liberty will be co-sponsoring the “Women on the Hill Prayer Breakfast.” We expect 120 women to attend this special time of prayer, encouragement and fellowship with women members of the U.S. House and Senate.

  • Proponents of the Changed movement will visit Capitol Hill this fall, and we plan to connect with and encourage them while they’re here in Washington.

We must all stay tuned in to what is happening in our nation’s capital. To stay informed on issues in Washington and play your part as a citizen and a Christian, look for the Faith & Liberty emails throughout the week. We are in this fight together for the soul of our nation.



Legislation Alert:
 The U.S. House has passed a bill that attacks marriage (HR 8404), and the U.S. Senate is rushing to have a full vote soon. This bill will not only push same-sex marriage by law into every state, but it also overrides states’ rights and brings the full weight of the federal attorney general’s office to file suits. As it is written, if just one state allowed incestuous marriage, this bill would force all 49 states to recognize and respect that “marriage.”

Urge the Senate to block HR 8404 by sending a fax and adding your name to our petition. Thanks!




PRAYER CONCERNS

Life: Many lawmakers are seeking to codify abortion in federal law, and some are attempting to stop the work of pregnancy resource centers that help parents who don’t want to abort their children. Pray that state and federal leaders will protect life and end abortion. Pray also for continued protection for the Supreme Court Justices and their families.

Planning: We pray that God would lead and guide as we plan various important ministry events. We pray that our ministry will be effective and unhindered. We also thank the Lord for the safety and security of our Faith & Liberty team and property.

Ministry: Pray for the congressional staffers and interns we minister to, that they would walk out their faith in their personal and professional lives.

Our efforts to bring the Word of God to bear on the hearts and minds of our public policy makers are only possible because wonderful friends like you stand with us both in faithful prayer and in your generous financial support! Thank you!

Make a difference and partner with us.
