Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the U.S. Attorney for Delaware, David Weiss, has been named special counsel to investigate the finances of President Biden’s family. He said the appointment was “in the public interest” because of “the extraordinary circumstances” relating to the matter. 

Pray for judges, attorneys, and investigators involved in the mounting legal issues surrounding President Biden and his family as well as former President Donald Trump. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii said she would make no excuses for policies that led to the failure to activate sirens that would have warned residents of Lahaina of the flames that overwhelmed the region, destroying the historic town and killing over 100 people. She said Hawaii’s attorney general is launching a review. 

Pray for families who have lost loved ones, homes, and businesses as a result of the wildfires in Hawaii. Pray for those coordinating and participating in recovery efforts. 


The House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party is investigating a security threat posed by cellular connectivity modules that can shut down vehicles. According to the committee, the modules, which connect the internet in electric cars, as well as in tractors and medical equipment among other devices, could be turned off by China at will. 

Pray for legislators as they investigate these devices and for technology engineers who seek to overcome the threats. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case of Moore v. United States which considers the constitutionality of the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act, the constitutionality of a wealth tax, and a mandatory repatriation tax on pre-2018 profits of some companies and some U.S. shareholders stored abroad. Some analysts are concerned the case could imperil the entire U.S. tax code. 

Pray for members of the Supreme Court as they establish their docket for the coming session.
