Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of being in Washington, D.C., to talk with media and government leaders about the importance of the family in the culture.
Two of my meetings were with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky and Senator James Lankford from Oklahoma. They both shared perspectives about faith and family that I believe Focus on the Family’s listeners will want to hear. We’re airing those conversations on our broadcast “Protecting Life and Family Values in the Senate.”
Our discussions weren’t specifically political, but, still, that is the Senators’ sphere of influence. Of more interest to me is their insight about living out their faith while following their vocational calling to be in government.
As you’ll hear, this broadcast isn’t to promote Democrats or Republicans, but to humanize our leaders and to highlight the challenges these men and women face every day in defending pro-family perspectives.
I encourage you to remember our leaders in your prayers. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of men and women in government and in the lives of families across the country, to correct injustices, and to help us all discern right policies that help us thrive as human beings. That’s God’s heart for all of us.
Senator Lankford said it best: “The answer to fixing all that is broken in Washington begins with lifting up families.”
I couldn’t agree more.
