Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Director George Koob said President Biden’s administration is considering giving “advising guidance” on alcohol consumption under which Americans would limit themselves to two drinks per week for men and one per day for women. Current guidelines are two alcoholic drinks per day for men and one for women. 

Pray for administration officials as they consider adopting guidelines for Americans that have been implemented in other nations.

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy of California said that the chamber “could” launch an impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden in the near future over the failure to produce documents. He said, “The thing that holds up whether we do impeachment inquiry, provide us the documents we’re asking…  If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for impeachment inquiry.“ 

Pray for Speaker McCarthy as he leads and navigates the business of the House. 


Representative Michael McCaul of Texas, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said Secretary of State Blinken omitted eight key documents that relate to the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan when responding to a committee request. 

Pray for wisdom for members of Congress as they seek information from officials in the president’s administration for congressional oversight. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court has been asked by a city in southern Oregon to rule on whether ticketing homeless people for sleeping on public property is a violation of the Constitution’s Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled that “the government cannot criminalize indigent, homeless people for sleeping outdoors on public property, on the false premise they had a choice in the matter.” 

Pray for discernment for the justices of the Supreme Court as they consider hearing the case regarding the citation of homeless people.
