Congress Returns from Recess

Lawmakers set eyes on President Biden’s first 100-day legacy. 

Congressional members returned to the Capitol this week to begin the next legislative session expected to round out President Biden’s first 100 days in office. Many of the president’s priorities including his infrastructure plan and budget proposal are expected to be on the docket. On Monday, the Senate began a new session following a two-week-long break. The House of Representatives will end its three-week-long break on Tuesday. 

The need for bipartisan cooperation was reflected in Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s message to his colleagues as they returned to the Capitol. Senator Schumer wrote, “We will try to work with our Republican colleagues on a bipartisan basis when and where we can. But if they choose to obstruct, rather than work with us to deliver for American families, we must make progress nonetheless. Failure is not an option.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the legislators of both houses of Congress would seek God’s guidance as they deliberate on the bills they craft.
  • For God’s will to be accomplished as Congress and the White House strategize the future of America.
  • For the Lord to give Congressional leaders wisdom on how to direct their members.
