Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative Jodey Arlington of Texas, chairman of the House Budget Committee, said they are working to release a budget plan before late September. He stated, “I will not let a fiscal year go by without having our budget… We have worked with every member, every faction, every caucus of our conference, to get to a good place.” 

Pray that members of Congress will be able to have a fully developed and signed-off budget before the end of the fiscal year. 


The House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party is investigating four venture capital firms linked to China’s military and to human rights abuses.

Pray for House and Senate committee members as they consider and craft legislation regarding the findings of their investigations.
