The Summit of the Americas is being held in Los Angeles, California, and President Joe Biden is traveling there today to host the opening of the event. The president will outline the Americas Partnership for Economic Prosperity that seeks to support new investments and supply chain resiliency, promote carbon reduction, and enhance the “social contract” of governments with their citizens.

White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre said of the summit, “Promoting democratic values and good governance has been a core component of the Summit of the Americas since the first Summit in 1994, with leaders at the Third Summit in 2001 articulating the principles that would later be embodied in the Inter-American Democratic Charter and pledging to further fight corruption that undermines democratic governance at the Eight Summit in 2018. This Summit, with the theme ‘Building a Sustainable, Resilient, and Equitable Future,‘ continue this tradition.“

She continued, “Our Administration and partners will push back against the threats to our democracies by fortifying democratic institutions, investing in civil society, strengthening independent media, and following through on a regional digital transformation that is transparent and equitable.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For safety for the president as he travels to Los Angeles.
  • For discernment for the president he hosts the Summit of the Americas.
  • For the Lord’s purposes to be accomplished in the outcomes of the discussions of the president with foreign leaders.
