November 11, 2010
On Monday, November 1, forty-three people gathered from five churches in front of the capitol building in Annapolis to publicly acknowledge the King of kings and pray for healing in our land. We confessed our own sin, asked for God’s will to be done the next day in the elections and lifted up our leaders to the Lord.
The First Annual Election Eve Prayer Walk in Maryland was a powerfully moving night of fellowship, friend-making, information-sharing about Capitol Commission and close to an hour of focused prayer in obedience to 1 Timothy 2:1-4. How exciting it was to see each small group move around from station to station to pray for all three branches of our state’s government, our nation, other leaders and the election. If you came, will you invite others next year? If you missed this time, will you join us for this important time of serving our Lord and our society through prayer?
Now that the results of the election are in, the focus for our ministry is taking shape for the next four years. Out of 188 seats in the Maryland General Assembly, 32 will be new members to be introduced to Capitol Commission. It will be great to welcome these folks and present our work.
Please pray for all who will serve as governmental leaders of Maryland for the next term. Pray for the staffers who face an uncertain future after their bosses lost their races. Pray for solid connections to form between new office holders and me. There’s much to do before the new legislative session begins in January.
As always, thank you for reading these updates and for praying. May you and your family enjoy the rest of this month and share special times of thanksgiving to God for His many blessings. You are a blessing to Tracy and me!
State Director, Maryland
