Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen recently stated, “I believe by the end of next year, you will see much lower inflation if there’s not… an unanticipated shock.

After the collapse of one of the largest cryptocurrency companies last month, the Securities and Exchange Commission is being urged to increase enforcement and oversight of the industry.
