2. NC VALUES: Our NC Federal Endorsements
Yesterday we shared with you our endorsements for the 2022 NC Federal races.
With the pressure of the Biden Administration’s radical agenda, we need representatives who will stand strong for North Carolina families and our country. If you look forward to a principled group of legislators who can help create a pro-values majority in Congress that will protect life, the family, and religious freedom, would you consider supporting these fine candidates?
3. WCCB CHARLOTTE: Abortion-Rights Group Leader Lends Support to NC Candidates
“Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of the socially conservative North Carolina Values Coalition, separately accused the legislative candidates at Tuesday’s event of extreme views on abortion, particularly on permitting late-term abortions.
The pro-abortion group Lillian’s List, which works to get pro-choice ‘women elected in North Carolina, has endorsed 25 legislative candidates. And its political action committee and members have contributed more than $150,000 to campaigns, group Executive Director Sarah Preston said.’
Over the past couple weeks, we have announced our endorsements of 80 judicial and legislative state and federal candidates.”

4. DAILY SIGNAL: FBI Agents Raid Home, Arrest Pro-Life Advocate in Front of Wife and Children
“Mark Houck, a pro-life advocate and father of seven, woke up Friday morning to a team of FBI agents raiding his home in Kintnersville, Pennsylvania. Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie, told Life Site News that 25-30 FBI agents entered their home around 7 a.m.
‘The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic,’ Ryan-Marie Houck told Life Site News about her husband’s arrest, which she and her children witnessed. She says her husband pleaded with the FBI agents to be calm, referencing the couple’s seven children.“
5. CAMPUS REFORM: Campbell University reverses course on blocking pro-life event
“Campbell University, a private Christian school in North Carolina, will allegedly now allow its Students for Life chapter members to counsel women outside of abortion clinics after originally denying the request.”
WEEKLY PRAYER: SOCIETY
Heavenly Father, we ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess: We have ridiculed the absolute Truth of Your Word and called it pluralism. We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism. We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, oh God, and know our hearts; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. In the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
