I invite you to join me in praying for our state government leaders. See for easy access to names and topics to pray. 

We acknowledge that one day: “the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.” (Rev. 11:5) AMEN!

I would love to hear from you – let me know how I might pray for you. Thank you for your continued love and support.
