We cannot allow temporary political appointees at the Department of Defense who are ideologically motivated to purge those man and women in uniform who do not agree with the cultural or political fads of the moment.”

Pray for the members of Congress as they work to do what is in the best interest of the nation and serve those whom they represent.

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals tossed out a challenge to the federal ban on bump stocks, devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at a more rapid pace.

A federal judge has ruled against a Georgia law requiring organizations and individuals who contract with public entities to declare that they will not support the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel.

Pray for members of the federal courts at every level as they deal with rights granted under the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.
