Issue 577 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

State Department Spokesman Ned Price said the multiple unsuccessful rounds of elections for House Speaker may have an effect on national security. He said the lack of a Speaker and the resultant lack of business being conducted made it “much more difficult for the State Department to take into account the prerogatives and the perspectives of members of both chambers of Congress.” 

The State Department has informed Congress that it will reopen the U.S. embassy in the Solomon Islands. The move is intended to counter China’s increased assertiveness in the Pacific.

Pray for officials in the State Department as they implement the president’s agenda. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has expressed concern over the government’s denial of the growing evidence of injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine. He stated, “It’s enormously frustrating because I think we could have prevented so much harm if our federal health agencies would have been honest and transparent.”  

Senator Mark Warner of Virginia said he supports the U.S. investing more in artificial intelligence, quantum computing, advanced engineering, and synthetic biology in order to stay competitive in a global market. 

Pray for the newly elected leaders in both the House and Senate. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The justices of the Supreme Court announced that they will return to the practice they had before the COVID-19 pandemic of announcing their decisions in open court. They will explain their decisions when they believe it is warranted.

A federal judge reduced the amount that some groups were ordered to pay in damages from $24 million to $350,000 for their participation in a Charlottesville, Virginia rally, in August 2017. However, he kept the compensatory damages of $2 million in place. 

Pray for wisdom for the men and women who sit on the judicial benches across the United States.
