Convention of States!


National Day of Prayer in Kingston, MA

Published in Blog on April 18, 2024 by Matt May

Not far from the very ground where the document that would become known as the Mayflower Compact was signed, Convention of States Foundation (COSF) is hosting this year's National Day of Prayer gathering and celebration.

The event will take place on May 2 at Sacred Heart High School in Kingston, Massachusetts, from 4:00-6:30 p.m. ET. The school is located at 399 Bishops Highway in Kingston. 

The location is fewer than five miles from Plymouth, where the signatories to the Mayflower Compact established on this continent the principles of ordered liberty, equality under the law, and the Judeo-Christian ethic on November 11, 1620.

This year's National Day of Prayer theme -- "LIFT UP THE WORD/LIGHT UP THE WORLD" -- is derived from 2 Samuel 22: 29-31. 

Toni Shuppe, Patriot Academy regional director and Constitution coach, will be a featured speaker at the event and deliver her testimony.

Convention of States Action (COSA) regional director and Massachusetts state co-director Michael Arnold, who also serves as a deacon at nearby Chiltonville Congregational Church, will offer a prayer.

COSA co-founder and president Mark Meckler underscored the significance of the event.

"The National Day of Prayer is very important," he said, "because the nation needs to return to regular prayer. It is a reminder that the nation was founded by families who believed in God, and God's hand in its founding and protection. It must remain so if we are to prosper in the future."

Other scheduled speakers who will elaborate on this year's theme and the importance of prayer in our nation include:

Leo Martin, co-founder of the The Jenney Interpretive Centre in Plymouth, Massachusetts, who has educated audiences across the country about the Pilgrims and the founding of the United States.

Rev. Dr. Paul Jehle, senior pastor of The New Testament Church of Cedarville in Plymouth.

Michael King, director of community alliances at the Massachusetts Family Institute.

Neil Eaton, senior pastor of New Hope Chapel in Plymouth. 

Michelle Gallagher, author of the Forefathers Monument Guidebookthe beautifully-rendered book that details the story of the Pilgrims and the design and construction of the National Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth. 

The event promises an afternoon of reverence, reaffirmation, and rededication to the words in 2 Samuel 22 and the Mayflower Compact the latter of which reads in part:

"Having undertaken for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and of one another, combine ourselves in a civic Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Offices, from time to time as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience."

There is no cost to attend the event in Kingston. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by visiting this link to register

We hope to see you in Kingston on May 2.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
