Issue 598 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said President Biden’s administration is looking for “substantive dialogue on arms control” with both Russia and China as the U.S. faces “near-peer” nuclear powers for the first time in history. 

Pray for administration officials as they seek arms control talks between the U.S., Russia, and China. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative James Comer of Kentucky has written to President Biden urging him to nominate inspectors general for the Departments of State and Treasury and for the Agency for International Development. They have been without the official “watchdogs” for years which is “holding back efforts to ensure the federal government is working as efficiently as possible on behalf of the American people,” he said. 

Pray for the secretaries and directors of agencies in the government who are lacking inspectors general. 


The Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee held a hearing focused on childcare workers and access to childcare for families that included testimony from a number of witnesses from the childcare and education fields. The committee sought to discover whether families could afford childcare without a renewal of funds from the American Rescue Plan. 

Pray for members of the Senate committee as they consider introducing legislation to provide childcare funding to families. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

District Court Judge Andrew Tipton granted an injunction against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) temporarily blocking their new regulations against pistol-stabilizing braces. The injunction applies to people employed by the State of Texas, its agencies, and all members of the Gun Owners of America. 

Pray for members of the federal judiciary as they deliberate many cases on subjects that challenge the Bill of Rights.
