Did you know that, in 1982, leaders in the Illinois General Assembly began the process of establishing a Prayer Room in our Capitol building?
Click here to read the amazing 15-year effort of legislative leaders who persevered and overcame opposition by one organization in particular to keep the prayer room from being installed.
Regrettably, when the West Wing of the Capitol was remodeled in 2013, the Prayer Room was removed and the area transformed into a Hearing Room.
Currently, the North Wing of our Capitol is being remodeled, and members of the Illinois Legislative Prayer Caucus (ILPC) are spearheading an effort to restore a Chapel within our Capitol Building.
As Chairman of the ILPC, Rep. Brad Halbrook will be filing HR495 in the Illinois House of Representatives during the upcoming Fall Veto Session to restore a Chapel. This is an important effort and no doubt will be met with strong opposition; and, we may face a battle over the issue. But as Romans 8:31 encourages us – “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
We know the fight to KEEP FAITH IN ILLINOIS is real. In this age when attempts to push God out of the public square are encountered at every turn, your name added to the list of those supporting this effort to reestablish a Chapel in our Illinois State Capitol is crucial.
We ask you to join us and become one of the many who actively chooses to KEEP FAITH IN ILLINOIS! Add your name in support of the initiative and share this information with your family, friends and networks!
