How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? (Romans 10:14)
We all know how important “heart change” is – for the individual and for society.
One of the ways we plant the seed of God’s Word in the hearts of those on Capitol Hill is through our Bible Reading Marathon! The Annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon is exactly that – a time when the entire Bible, Genesis to Revelation, is read out loud and without interruption from the famous West Terrace of the Capitol Building itself; the same location where the President of the United States takes the oath of office!
Faith & Action has been a co-sponsor of this unique event for 28 years. This program is vital because it enables all those in and around the Capitol building to hear the Word of God. It is our hope and prayer that the Lord will use this outreach to plant the seed of faith into the hearts of our leaders and their staff here in Washington, D.C.
Please start praying for this year’s event, which starts on April 29th, and goes to May 3rd, the National Day of Prayer. You can be a part of this unique and powerful event by praying for us, volunteering to come and read, and by supporting the event with your very generous, tax-deductible contribution!
If you’re interested in participating in the 29th Annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon please contact [email protected] or call Terry Shaffer Hall at 202-441-6455.
Thank you again for all you do to help us share the Gospel in Washington, D.C., and thank you for caring about every one of our leaders (and their staff too) in the nation’s capital.
On Behalf of Your Faith & Action Ministry Team,
Mrs. Peggy Nienaber
Vice President of Operations
