CT Capitol Prayer Walkers
April 2018 Newsletter
Robin Hansen, Lucy Snow – Team Leaders
Praise God and thank you for your faithfulness in praying for our state … and there is a lot happening!
First … we are revamping the ministry of the CT Capitol Prayer Walkers. Nothing dramatic – just tidying up a little. For over 10 years, Lucy Snow has been the Coordinator of this ministry. She has done an incredible job, but it is a lot of work, so as of 2018, Robin Hansen will be co-coordinating with Lucy. Robin has been a prayer walker for over 4 years & is thrilled and excited to come alongside & partner with Lucy to help share these responsibilities.
In the next couple of months, we will be creating a new brochure, hosting a “Info Session” at the Capitol, renovating our web page on the House of Good Hope’s website, and doing a radio interview on Christian Radio Station WIHS, 104.9FM. Details to follow…
We will also be creating a newsletter that will contain current prayer needs and other information. The Newsletter will probably be every other month (we’ll see)
And … we are working on a Facebook page – stay tuned!!

67th Annual National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer events will take place in over 160 locations throughout our state & throughout the day at various times. Get involved & tell others! Attend one of more events and make a public witness for Jesus! For the nearest location(s) to you visit www.nationaldayofprayer.org
CONNECTICUT PRAYS – This is part of New England Prays, the Prayer Initiative to have New England covered in prayer 24/7/365 until Jesus returns. The goal is to have our state covered in prayer by uniting churches across Connecticut to participate. There are currently over 25 churches across our state that are involved! Maybe YOUR church wants to get involved? For more information &/or to get your church involved, visit www.ctprays.org
CT Capitol Prayer Breakfast – On Tuesday, April 24th the Connecticut Capitol Prayer Network, along with several State Senators, are hosting the Connecticut Capitol Prayer Breakfast at the State Capitol. All State Senators and State Legislators are being mailed official invitations. (this event is not open to the public)
Personally invite YOUR Legislators by writing a note, sending an email or calling their office — they are much more encouraged to attend if they are personally invited by the very people they represent!!
1. PRAY God will raise up bold, born-again
Christians to serve in our State Government!!
2. PRAY Christians will spread the word about this year’s election & VOTE!!
3. PRAY for supernatural intervention at each event on the National Day of Prayer! And for great weather!!
4. PRAY hundreds of churches across CT will get involved with Connecticut Prays!!
5. PRAY every state citizen personally invites their Representatives AND that every single state legislator attends the breakfast & joins as we pray in the Name of Jesus!!
6. PRAY God’s protection and wisdom for Peter Wolfgang and the Family Institute of CT.
7. PRAY for God’s protection for local Christian Radio Station WIHS – 104.9FM. PRAY for His wisdom and guidance for the WIHS Board of Directors!
