1. NC VALUES VOICE: Live with Congressman Richard Hudson (last episode)

Earlier this week we had the last episode of “The NC Values Voice”, a weekly 30-minute interview by Executive Director, Tami Fitzgerald, with a special guest. The NC Values Voice aired on Facebook Live and www.ncvalues.org/voice on Wednesday night at 7:30pm. Our goal with these programs is to inform and motivate our statewide coalition members with current, relevant information.
 
On our last Election Edition of The Voice, we interviewed Congressman Richard Hudson, who is running for re-election in North Carolina's 8th Congressional District. Richard is running for his 5th term in Congress, where he has served the people of Concord and central North Carolina since 2012.

2. BREITBART: American Faith Leaders: Barrett 'Dream that today became a reality'

"In North Carolina, Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of NC Values, said Barrett’s confirmation is 'a fulfillment of President Trump’s promise to appoint pro-life judges who will carry out the Constitution and laws as written, without contorting the law to reach a desired outcome.'

'There is no one more qualified to sit on the Supreme Court than Justice Barrett,' Fitzgerald added, citing her originalist and textualist judicial foundation. Additionally, however, she said Barrett’s Christian faith and devotion to her family make her an appealing choice.

'Having a mother of seven serve in such a high-profile office is proof that women don’t need abortion to succeed in life,' she said."

WEEKLY PRAYER: OFFICIALS

LORD, you also have instructed us to pray for our governing officials, and we come to you in the spirit of this petition. We pray for our national government and its executive, legislative, and judicial servants. May they indeed be servants unto the people, and govern in a manner that protects liberty and virtue. In the same spirit, we pray for public servants across our state and local governments. May they all heed your mandate in Romans 13:4 to be in positions of authority as "God's servant" and for the "good" of the public. They govern in what we confess are difficult times. Between the COVID-19 pandemic, the civic unrest, the hostile political climate, and the opposition of international opponents such as China, they are much in need of your incalculable wisdom. May they plead with you to give it to them, and may your grace respond in kind.

Protect we, the People, from this virus, and help quicken our social, physical, emotional, and economic recovery.


Amen
