What is the Capitol Prayer Initiative?
It’s easier to pray when you have a strategy. That’s what the Capitol Prayer Initiative is about. We want to provide you with strategic opportunities to pray.
There are two elements to the Capitol Prayer Initiative:
- A monthly prayer walk at the State Capitol;
- Urgent prayer requests sent straight to your phone via text message.
Texted Prayer Requests
We understand that not everyone can make it down to the State Capitol to pray in the Unicameral balcony during legislative debates or committee hearings – but we all can take time to pray right where we are.
We’ll text you our most urgent prayer requests: when critical votes are being taken at the State Capitol; when our team members are testifying before committee hearings; when we need people to take action and contact their elected representatives. You can be praying with us when we need it most.

Monthly Prayer Walk
The Capitol Prayer Walk began in 2002 when Christian senators began requesting prayer support because it had been over a decade since any pro-life legislation had advanced. Each year since the launch of the Nebraska Capitol Prayer Walk, pro-life/pro-family legislation, including the landmark Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act of 2010 has become law.
Brief updates will be provided before praying at strategic locations inside the Capitol. The Prayer Walk is facilitated by an NFA team member. We conclude our prayer time together overlooking the Legislative Chambers.
WHEN: 3rd Saturday of each month
TIME: 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
