Issue 558 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

President Joe Biden has not yet released details on how he plans to pay for the cancelation of thousands of dollars of debt for student loan borrowers. The administration estimates the plan will cost around $140 billion. The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania released analysis showing that debt cancellation alone will cost up to $519 billion for ten years, and the overall cost could rise to more than $1 trillion. 

The Environmental Protection Agency is designating some toxic industrial compounds used in cookware, carpets, and firefighting foams as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, known as the Superfund Law. 

Pray that the president and administration officials would seek God’s wisdom regarding programs and regulations and their impact on inflation. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas wrote to Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra requesting that “all records and information related to Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins” be preserved after Dr. Fauci gave notice that he will leave his role as head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as White House chief medical adviser at the end of the year. 

Representative Claudia Tenney of New York has suggested term limits for bureaucrats serving in government. Her comments followed the announced resignation of Dr. Anthony Fauci from the NIH, where he has served since 1984. “Maybe that’s one of the solutions we should have,” Representative Tenney said.  “Maybe we should revisit some of the ideas of people staying too long and not really doing the job they need to do.” 

Pray for members of Congress and the oversight they have of the federal bureaucracy. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

A federal judge in Maryland dismissed a lawsuit filed by parents over a school district’s policy that permits school officials to withhold information about students’ gender identity from their parents in some cases.

The Fourth U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that the Americans with Disabilities Act protects trans-identified individuals and that a prison policy requiring inmates to be housed based on their biological sex violates federal law. 

Pray for judges in America’s courts who are ruling on gender dysphoria and other sexuality issues.
