Senators and representatives have the hard job of balancing the competing interests of their constituents. Send a note of encouragement and prayer to your members of Congress today.
Every member of Congress begins the new term with high ideals and objectives – members run for office because they want to create positive change in their communities and their country. But political pressures can creep in and pull them away from their original aspirations. Though you may not always agree with your members of Congress on issues or their decisions, as Christians, we are called to pray for our leaders. Most of them claim some kind of faith – 88.2 percent of Congress is Christian and nearly 97 percent is religious.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people —for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
1 Timothy 2:1-2
Send a note of encouragement to your members of Congress letting them know that you are praying for them. Thank them for the work they do and remind them to keep the needs of children around the world in mind as they make critical decisions.

Remind them of the needs of children who are impacted by their decisions, not only here in the U.S., but around the world.
