Pray for more voices for life among our elected officials. Pray for Christians who are elected officials to be encouraged in their personal faith and emboldened in their public service.
In this confidence let us hold on to the hope that we profess without the slightest hesitation—for he is utterly dependable—and let us think of one another and how we can encourage each other to love and do good deeds. (Heb 10:23-24)
This year IFA spearheaded a new prayer initiative at the March for Life called iPRAYforLIFE. Hopefully, you have seen the advertisements and many articles about pro-life issues in the last few weeks. We have an incredible story to share with you.
Last Thursday’s Informer Email asked you if you had prayed for Representative Katrina Jackson, who serves in the Louisiana State House. Many of you posted heartfelt prayers for her HERE. She was one of the elected officials who spoke at the March for Life.
On Friday morning before the March, a group of IFA staffers were waiting in our hotel lobby to meet up and walk over to our prayer tent. We started talking with a woman who was walking through the lobby about her lovely outfit. When she said she was speaking at the March, we realized that it was Representative Jackson. We introduced ourselves and told her that we were praying for her, and not only us, but also that we had sent an email to nearly 90,000 intercessors who were praying for her as well.
We showed her the email and she was literally taken aback. She was deeply encouraged. Her prayer partner was unable to accompany her to the March—we told her that she had a prayer team of 1000 partnering with her (that’s how many of you committed to pray during the March for Life).
We also prayed with her right there in the hotel lobby.
God orchestrated this “chance” meeting for her encouragement and for our confirmation that He indeed is hearing our intercessors’ prayers and using us!
