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

The Faith & Liberty Monday Report

Aug 15, 2022

What a blessing it is to be your missionaries to Washington, D.C.!

We do not take for granted either the position or the period in which God has placed Faith & Liberty in our nation’s capital. Just think of all we have encountered of late, from abortion activists protesting the Supreme Court decision on Roe to the desecration of marriage as seen in recent proposed legislation.

Faith & Liberty is not a political organization as we seek to minister to the spiritual needs of people on both sides of the aisle. But we do stand for religious freedom, the pro-life cause, marriage as instituted by God and other biblical values.

We invite you to stand with us daily, or as you are able, to bring Faith & Liberty before the Lord in prayer, that all we do will uphold God’s Word in Washington and honor His name.

Thank you for your faithful and generous support of our ministry in our nation’s capital!

Shining His light on Capitol Hill,

The Faith & Liberty team

MONDAY RECAP

  • Several women from Aglow International stopped by our Ministry Center. With a mission to lead women to Jesus Christ, Aglow is an intercultural nondenominational organization of Christian women with more than 3,500 fellowships in over 150 nations. Aglow women from across the U.S. come every month to join Faith & Liberty in prayer around the Supreme Court and Capitol. Together we are stronger. We thank them for praying for our team as well.
  • The Good News Washington Church team stopped by the Ministry Center last week. Team members are planning their Fall program on how to share the gospel on Capitol Hill. Team members have also volunteered to participate in Faith & Liberty’s Live Nativity in the past and likely will this year too.
  • Peggy Nienaber and Patty Bills worked with Elizabeth Doyle of She Leads America in planning for our upcoming “Women on the Hill Prayer Breakfast” with congressional women. This event already has over 100 positive RSVPs.
  • The Ministry Center hosts many different Bible studies each and every week. These daytime and evening studies include many young Capitol Hill staffers. New congressional staffers also are encouraged to join a local church.

COMING SOON
  • We continued our critical conversations with key leaders this week as we prepare for the U.S. Capitol Police Officer Recognition. Please pray for this important event slated for September.
  • Faith & Liberty will be co-sponsoring the “Women on the Hill Prayer Breakfast.” This will be a 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 are here in Washington.

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

Making a difference: Pray that God would open doors of active ministry and be glorified as we connect with members of Congress, key leaders, congressional staffers, interns, pastors and others. We aim to make a difference in the nation’s capital through prayer and action!

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

Celebrating freedom: We thank the Lord that freedom of speech and religion was upheld in the public square earlier this month as Liberty Counsel and Camp Constitution raised the Christian flag in a special ceremony at the Boston City Hall Plaza. This celebration follows on from the unanimous Supreme Court victory May 2. Our chairman, Mat Staver, who is also founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, argued the case before the Court.

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.
