Reading Time: 2 minutes

Where do people in leadership go for ministry? Pastors often struggle in this area. How much more our government officials?

Recently I was introduced to the ministry of Alabaster House and the director, Kimberly Genau. This unique ministry outreach needs our prayer AND they are looking to train others.

I first met Kimberly about a year ago when our mutual friend, Tracy Bost, introduced us. IFA readers know Tracy and her husband, Mike Bost (IL-R) as they have taken a bold stand for righteousness and justice in our nation.

(They have been featured on IFA and Tracy is behind the prayer initiative in which people can write their prayers for the president on 3 x 5 index cards and send to him.)

Kimberly recognized the stress on the marriages and families of people in high-level positions. She started Alabaster House in an effort to serve government leaders and their families.

She has worked on Capitol Hill for over twenty years first with Dr. D. James Kennedy, leading Bible studies and outreach events. Her work on Capitol Hill has continued and extended through Alabaster House,  in which she and her husband provide ministry to government leaders and their families through retreats, prayer appointments, chapels, and evening gatherings.

One member of Congress told Kimberly that while he meets with many people on Capitol Hill, he observed that nearly all have an agenda, and it’s very rare to find someone like Kimberly and her husband, who just want to be a true friend.  The mission of Alabaster House is to provide spiritual resources to government leaders and their families through confidential prayer, biblical devotionals, and friendship.

Are you interested in becoming trained and then praying for our governmental leaders?

On June 2, Alabaster House will host an Exclusive Equipping Event (EEE), an immersive one-day workshop held in the halls of Congress designed to equip and instruct intercessors and pastors how to pray practically for our government leaders.

It will include a session with a panel of congressional members and member wives to hear their struggles and how we can come along side to pray for them. In the afternoon, attendees will divide into small groups to head to member’s offices on Capitol Hill and pray behind the scenes. EEE concludes with an afternoon reception.

This is a one-day event from 9:30-4:00 p.m. If you are interested you can register online by clicking here.

Please remember to pray for Kimberly, her husband, and the ministry of Alabaster House. Also, please pray for the leaders in government they are ministering to–that the seeds of the Gospel, wisdom, and peace will produce a great harvest in their lives.

Thank you, Lord God, for the ministry of Alabaster House, who have direct contact with our congress persons and government leaders for prayer, encouragement, friendship and any other ways they can support and guide. Thank you for strong Christians like the Bosts and the Pences, and many others who are in the trenches of “warfare” every day in trying to keep our government and our nation on the track of following the Constitution and the precepts of your word, oh Lord. Father God, strengthen and encourage them, lead and guide them, granting wisdom and discernment; Protect them by the power of your spirit because of the grace, love and mercy you provided through Jesus Christ, your son. Thank you and praise you, Lord, for your people who are on the front lines and in the trenches; may they bring recognition, acknowledgement and glory to your name, who you are and what you have sacrificed for us.
