Issue 602 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

The new chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Jason Owens, said improving morale among Border Patrol agents will be his biggest challenge. He stated that agents have felt overwhelmed and underappreciated. 

Pray for Border Patrol Chief Owens and for the men and women of the Border Patrol. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative Wesley Hunt of Texas introduced a resolution to dedicate July to recognizing pride in America. “I urge ALL my colleagues to join in this effort to celebrate and memorialize our history,” he said of “American Pride Month.” 

Pray for members of Congress as they consider the resolution to recognize patriotism. 


The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee released a report showing that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security ignored a “massive amount” of intelligence that showed the “true scope of protests” planned for January 6, 2021. The report stated that both agencies downplayed or ignored known plans. As a result of these findings, Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana called for an investigation by an independent third party. 

Pray for senators as they consider an independent investigation into the lack of response by federal agencies to the threats that existed ahead of the events of January 6. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court refused to take up an appeal from a charter school in North Carolina that was seeking to preserve a dress code that required girls to wear skirts. The court allowed an earlier ruling by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled against the charter school’s dress code. The Fourth Circuit said the dress code violated civil rights laws. 

Pray for members of the Supreme Court as they accept cases during the summer recess that they will hear in the fall term.
