The Equality Act

A Day of Prayer & Fasting

I know how busy you are, and I know you don’t have much time to spare. But this message is too important, and the consequences are too critical, so I’m asking for just a few minutes of your time. Will you watch the video below?

If you haven’t heard about it yet, the U.S. Senate is currently considering the radical—and deceptively named—Equality Act. In my opinion, it should be called the Advancing Sexual Rights Act. This act is disturbing for a number of reasons, but it’s especially hazardous for your duty and your calling to practice conscientiously as a healthcare professional.

At CMDA, we want to make it clear that we are never in favor of discriminating against any patient. In our mission statement, we make it clear that we bring glory to God by caring for all people who come to us for healing and comfort.

If you haven’t already done so, I strongly encourage you to visit and take 10 seconds of your time to send a pre-drafted email to your senators urging them to vote against the act.

CMDA’s leadership has been praying against this bill’s passage for a long time, and we feel led by the Lord to join together as the body of Christ and set aside Monday, March 29 as a Day of Prayer and Fasting for our nation and for our nation’s leaders. I hope you will join me and spend the time petitioning God to move mightily and miraculously within our country and prevent the passage of this bill, if that’s His will.

Acts 4:31 says, “After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”

So on Monday, March 29, I urge you join me in praying and fasting for God to open the eyes of our lawmakers to see the deception of this bill, and for God to move the minds and hearts of each senator and give them courage to stand against it.

Thank you for praying during this challenging time and for partnering with your like-minded colleagues through CMDA.

Praying with you,

Mike Chupp, MD, FACS
Chief Executive Officer
