Issue 596 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said males must be allowed in girls’ sports in order to protect kids from “elected bullies.” He said, “I want to make sure kids can go to school free from discrimination, period. We have elected bullies right now going after kids. Look, it’s not a black-and-white issue: It’s very difficult; it’s very nuanced—and our proposal just ensures that all students have a fair shake.” 

Pray for administration officials that they seek to find a balance between cultural opinions and what is factual or true. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

A bipartisan team in the House, Representatives Maria Elvira Salazar of Florida and Victoria Escobar of Texas, has introduced a nearly 500-page immigration bill that would revamp the asylum process, reduce the backlog on visas, and provide a pathway to give millions of undocumented migrants legal status. 

Pray for members of Congress this year to consider in-depth immigration reforms that protect the sovereignty and security of the United States. 


At a hearing of the House Financial Services Subcommittee, the chief executives of recently collapsed regional banks were asked about their own levels of accountability for the banking failures. According to Representative Bill Huizenga of Michigan, two executives dodged the query, while one said that, in hindsight, he might have done things differently. They all cited social media as fueling the runs on the banks. 

Pray that subcommittee members dealing with the banking collapses will be able to use the information to strengthen the banking industry. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing a ban on “assault weapons” in Illinois to temporarily take effect while the case is considered on its constitutional merits in the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. The injunctive relief request went to Justice Amy Coney Barrett. 

Pray for Supreme Court Justices as they conclude writing rulings on major cases they have heard this session.
