I am happy to report that last week's Election-Eve Prayer Walk at the State Capitol was a tremendous success. We had a good turnout, especially considering that this was our first big Capitol Commission California event. Those attending included a number of pastors and groups from many churches throughout California and even some state legislators. Over twenty friends served as helpers, most of whom work in the Capitol community as Legislative Staff Members, Lobbyists, or State Workers. One is even a Senator's wife. It was an encouraging time of fellowship and meaningful prayer for our State and Nation. Many in attendance told me afterwards how much they appreciated it and look forward to participating again next time. Some photos from the Prayer Walk are below, and many more pictures can be viewed online here.
Now that we know the names of those whom God is sovereignly allowing to serve in office for this next term (Romans 13:1 "…For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.") let's continue to pray for each of them, especially asking God to send people to them to tell them about Christ and His will for their lives and their work, and to open their hearts to receive His word.
I look forward to meeting each of the incoming state legislators at the swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol on December 6th.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers and generous support for this ministry! This is a team effort, and we cannot do it without you.
Your Missionary to the State Capitol,
