Wednesday, May 4

Today, the U.S. Olympic Teams will be hosted by President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden on the South Lawn of the White House. Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff will also participate in the celebration.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated of the event, “The President and the First Lady will welcome Team USA to the White House to celebrate their participation and success in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games and Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.” 

The first lady led the delegation to the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which were delayed a year due to the pandemic. The U.S. had staged a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics held just months ago due to human rights violations toward Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president, vice president, and their spouses as they host Team USA at the White House.
  • For the president and his administration to turn their hearts toward the Lord regarding the sanctity of life.
  • For wisdom for the president and congressional leaders as further aid to Ukraine is discussed.
  • With gratitude for the continuing emergence of the nation from the pandemic.
