Transforming lives with Good News in the Nation’s Capital

The Faith & Liberty Monday Report

Mar 13, 2023

There’s a powerful scripture in 2 Corinthians 5:20 that speaks to our vital ministry in the nation’s capital. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the apostle Paul wrote: “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”

What does it mean to be an “ambassador”? In that role, a person is appointed by a higher authority to represent their country to another country or to a significant body like the United Nations. An ambassador must be one who engages relationally with other leaders, negotiates well and acts as a peacemaker when conflict arises.

As “ambassadors for Christ” on Capitol Hill, we not only represent Faith & Liberty, but most importantly, we represent Christ. Along with other faithful Christians on Capitol Hill, we are His hands and feet. As His ambassadors, we act on His behalf and seek to show who He is and His heart for those who don’t know Him.

We love America and believe in being good citizens, but most of all, we are citizens of another kingdom — the kingdom of God. We are commissioned by Him to seek those are spiritually lost and urge them to be reconciled to God.

Pray with us that Faith & Liberty will be effective ambassadors for Christ on Capitol Hill and through our Ministry Center. We are so thankful for your powerful prayers and generous gifts that sustain our vital ministry as ambassadors in our nation’s capital!

Lord we pray for all levels of our nation’s government, from local to state to federal. We pray that the leaders in our judicial, legislative, and executive branches will seek your face and acknowledge you in all of their ways.

Lord, we ask you to guide Faith & Liberty team according to your good and holy will. May they keep in step with your Holy Spirit daily.

Lord, we ask you to lead the Faith & Liberty team as they serve in these ways:

  • Uphold the Word of God through the Bible studies at the Ministry Center.

  • Lead the Bible study with women members of Congress.

  • Engage with members of Congress and their staff to support them spiritually.

  • Meet with and mentor young interns at this critical stage of their life.

  • Witness to what God has done in their own lives.

  • Handle every detail of planning events and activities.

Lord, we pray for each of the prayer and financial supporters of Faith & Liberty. Please meet their needs and may spiritual fruit come as a result of their praying and giving.
