A Call to Prayer


Date: April 28, 2015

Today the US Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments to ultimately answer the question – does the Fourteenth Amendment require states to provide marriage licenses to two people of the same sex? They are expected to rule June or July of this year.

NOW is the time for God’s people to unite in prayer.

Join hundreds of Nebraskans in prayer for the US Supreme Court decision on marriage through three prayer conference calls hosted by Nebraska Family Alliance. For more info about the Marriage Prayer Initiative, CLICK HERE.

We also encourage you to begin praying daily for the US  Supreme Court decision.This Marriage Prayer Guide gives a prayer topic for each day of the week.

Support Anti-Human Trafficking Bill, LB294

Date: April 20, 2015

The State Legislature is debating Legislative Bill 294, an anti-human trafficking bill TODAY. Encourage your senator to vote YES on LB 294 because it does two important things:

  1. Enable law enforcement to better fight human trafficking in the state of Nebraska by increasing penalties for pandering and solicitation of prostitution.
  2. Any assets obtained through the commission of crime under the human trafficking code would result in civil forfeiture. (More details) In other words, if someone is convicted of human trafficking, property obtained through the crime or facilitated a crime is subject to confiscation by the state and would go toward a fund for human trafficking victims.
