Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

President Biden was one of many world leaders on a telephone call Sunday with Ukrainian President Zelensky in which they discussed the turmoil over the weekend involving the perplexing turned-around potential coup of Russian President Putin’s regime by the leader of the Wagner Group of paid mercenaries fighting on behalf of Russia. 

Pray for President Biden and those serving in the administration in the formulation and engagement in foreign relations, including with our adversaries. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representatives Michelle Steel of California and Brad Schneider of Illinois introduced bipartisan legislation that would make the U.S. less reliant on China and the CCP. The measure seeks to empower America’s Trade Representative to negotiate with key allies for medical goods and services and the improvement of supply chains. 

Pray for Congressional members as they consider the importance of securing essential medical supplies with less dependence on the Chinese Communist Party. 


At a House Science Committee meeting, Chairman Frank Lucas of Oklahoma cautioned Washington policymakers against trying to “win the race” for dominance in artificial intelligence by copying China’s approach. “We can maintain our leadership role in AI, and we can ensure its development with our values of trustworthiness, fairness, and transparency,” he said. 

Pray for committees in both the House and Senate who are considering risks and regulations involving artificial intelligence. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a religious management company was within its First Amendment rights by requiring employees to adhere to its religious beliefs. The judges, however, did not grant class-action status to its ruling, which means it will apply only to the parties to the lawsuit. 

Give thanks for every court ruling that upholds religious freedoms under the First Amendment.
