Equal Rights Amendment

Equal Rights Amendment Update
We are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

Vision 2020 - Week 21 - Rep. Jeanne M Ives (R) and Rep. Christine Winger (R)

Recently, I heard a pastor tell the story of a United States Senator.  The Senator told the pastor, "I feel like the church prayed me into this Senate seat but now they have left me to do the job on my own."

Have we, God's people, done just that?  Have we prayed that God would put Godly men and women in our city, county, state and federal government offices and then failed to cover them in prayer?

Perhaps it's time to renew our commitment to pray for them!

Will you join us in praying that God will give our Godly leaders boldness and courageous to fight courageously each day for a government that honors God in their words and their deeds?

Will you step up to be a guardian of our cities and our state?  Will you be the watchman on the wall?  Will you be the prayer warrior and the superhero that Illinois is so greatly in need of today?

Vision 2020 would like to invite you to join us in praying for our state legislators.  We will send out information about a couple different state representatives each week for you to pray over.

Consider sharing this information with your ministry partners, your church family, on your website and/or your Facebook page.

We know that prayer changes things.  And we know that NOTHING is impossible with God. So let's join our hearts and voices together and petition heaven on behalf of the great state of Illinois!

Some of our legislators need prayer that God will open their eyes and change their hearts (or move them out of their positions) and some need prayers that they will have the strength, courage and boldness to be able to stand firmly against the opposition as they fight for life and family values.

The godly people in the land are my true heroes!
I take pleasure in them!
