Here is a sample Prayer Service you can use on Thursday!

This week is critical for preserving healthcare for low-income children, seniors and working adults. The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a “repeal and replace” healthcare bill on Thursday (March 23).

If you are willing to bring a few people to a prayer vigil, VICPP can promote the vigil to people in the area or assist with media. Please email Kim if you can help with this (Kim@virginiainterfaithcenter.org).

Here are three things you can do:

  • Call your Representative and urge him/her to oppose Ryan’s healthcare bill. Call the switchboard (202224-3121) and ask for your Representative and then leave a simple message.
  • Pledge to pray on Thursday, the day of the vote.  Sign the Pledge here !
  • Organize a prayer vigil outside one of the district offices. Here’s a list of offices where we’d love to see (and help promote) prayer vigils:
