Pray for Our Interim Committee Meetings and Bible Study at the West Virginia State Capitol

Every month our legislators gather in Charleston for three days of interim committee meetings. Each lawmaker is assigned to one or more committees in order to work on various issues throughout the year.

In these meetings they deal with a variety of topics, many of which will be taken up during next year’s regular session.This month's interim meetings will be held on May 14 - 16.

During the interim meetings, Capitol Commission provides Bible studies for our legislators and elected officials at the capitol. Our study for this month is entitled "Only Christ Can Make Us Clean" from Numbers 5:1-4 and will be held on Tuesday, May 15.

Please pray for our legislators as they gather for these meetings:

Pray for safety as they travel.

Pray for them as they take this time away from their families and jobs.

Pray for them as they deal with many issues important to our state.

Pray that our Bible study and other aspects of our ministry will be a challenge and encouragement to our leaders.

You can learn more about the legislative interim committee assignments and meetings at the West Virginia Legislature web site.

Capitol Bible Study: "Only Christ Can Make Us Clean" (Numbers 5:1-4)

From the notes of next week's Bible study at the West Virginia state capitol:

"We would be hesitant to visit the governor, senate president, house speaker, or other important leader with dirty clothes and in need of a shower and shave. How much more should we dread entering God’s presence with sin and uncleanness in our lives? All of us are tempted to believe we are good people. When we truly begin to recognize how holy and pure God is, then we begin to understand how sinful and unclean we are before Him. It is then we realize we need a Savior who can cleanse us from our sin."
