Issue 612 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

FBI Director Christopher Wray is asking Congress to renew a surveillance program known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Act. The request is specifically for a provision that permits the federal government to surveil emails and electronic communications of foreigners living abroad. The director called it a top priority, essential for national security. 

Pray for members of the president’s administration as they promote America’s intelligence services for the nation’s security. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

The physician who attends members of Congress, after checking on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky who has had what have been called “brain freezes” during  press conferences recently, said the senator showed “no evidence” of a “seizure disorder or stroke, TIA or movement disorder such as Parkinson’s disease.” He said Senator McConnell was “medically clear” to continue working. 

Pray for the health of members of both the House and Senate and for wisdom for the physicians who attend them. 


The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability is seeking information from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on “disturbing” aviation and rail safety failures. The committee wants details on how the department has been handling recent issues, and how it intends to increase public confidence that has been eroding. 

Pray for the various congressional committees as they resume investigations into federal matters of concern to Americans. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

In its new term, the Supreme Court will be hearing a case brought by payday loan industry trade groups against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The funding structure set by Congress for the bureau is being challenged as unconstitutional.

Pray for the justices of the Supreme Court as they prepare for the coming term.
