Issue 579 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

President Joe Biden is not willing to negotiate on the debt ceiling nor entertain policy concessions in exchange for lifting the government’s limit on borrowing, according to White House officials. It is an “obligation of this country and its leaders to avoid economic chaos,” White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre said. 

On the 50th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, Vice President Kamala Harris said in a speech, “We are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a land of promise. America is a promise—it is the promise of freedom and liberty. Not for some but for all.” 

Pray for God to be at work in and through the president and vice president as they lead the executive branch.

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

A bipartisan group of Senators recently visited the southern borders of Texas and Arizona. Together, they are pushing to reach an agreement on border security and immigration policies to bridge the political divides over handling the border crisis.

Representative Rick Allen of Georgia introduced legislation to close loopholes in National Science Foundation grants that are being exploited by Chinese military firms to access federally-funded research programs. The bill is known as the American Science First Act. 

Pray for members of Congress as they investigate matters that have a direct impact on the nation’s security.

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

Protesters demonstrated unimpeded outside the Maryland neighborhood home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the 50th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, marching up and down the sidewalk in front of his home and chanting, “cut his time short,” “freedom of religion means freedom from yours,” and “no privacy for us, no peace for you.” 

Pray for the safety and security of all members of America’s judiciary.
