Saturday, July 9

Today, President Joe Biden is at his home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. He has no public events scheduled on his agenda at this time.

On Friday, former Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe was assassinated during a campaign speech in the city of Nara. President Biden phoned Japanese Prime Minister Kishida to extend his condolences.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, “The President underscored that he and the American people stand with the Prime Minister and the people of Japan in their time of mourning. The President noted the importance of Prime Minister Abe’s enduring legacy with his vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific and the establishment of the QUAD meetings of Japan, the United States, Australia and India.“

She continued, “The President noted our unwavering confidence in the strength of Japan’s democracy and the two leaders discussed how Abe Shinzo’s legacy will live on as we continue the important task of defending peace and democracy.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president as he interacts with foreign ministers and officials.
  • For safety for U.S. politicians and candidates as they campaign for the midterm elections this fall.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Blinken as he meets with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Deputy Prime Minister Don Pramudwinai in Bangkok, Thailand.
