Thursday, January 27

Today, President Joe Biden will be addressing the nation alongside Associate Justice Stephen Breyer of the Supreme Court of the United States. It is expected that Justice Breyer will announce his intent to retire this summer. President Biden will speak about the nomination process as he prepares to select a nomination to fill the vacancy left by Justice Breyer.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday that the president will wait to release any official statements until after the meeting but added that the president remains committed to nominating a person of color in order to bring broader representation to the High Court. “The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that,” she said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the president as he evaluates candidates for nomination to the Supreme Court.
  • For God to be at work in the heart and mind of whomever the president selects.
  • For the Senate to have discernment and clarity as they prepare to review the nominee.
