Abby has tremendous influence in her home state of Pennsylvania, the Keystone state. She prays weekly with Senators in the state capitol, and as a result of these prayer times, God has moved mightily in the lives of senators and through them as they promote justice and healing in Pennsylvania through legislative means. She is also on the executive committee and is the National Prayer Coordinator for America For Jesus, a national event to be held in Philadelphia September 28 and 29. This event is designed to call America back to her destiny as One Nation Under God and to fan the flames of revival in America for the Third Great Awakening! Abby carries the heart of William Penn who founded Pennsylvania and is America’s first Founding Father. The United States Constitution is modeled after William Penn's First Frame of Government written to establish the "holy experiment" which came to be known as Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania carries the covenantal root to establish godly government to be a holy example to honor all men and bring freedom and justice for all. The government of Pennsylvania is destined to serve as a holy example, to not only our nation, but to all nations. Abby carries Kingdom authority and influence to bring about, through government, liberty and justice throughout Pennsylvania, into the US, and unto the nations!
