Issue 613 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

The State Department says it is redirecting $55 million in military aid from Egypt to Taiwan, citing concerns about human rights abuses. Secretary of State Antony Blinken determined that Egypt had not fulfilled human rights adjusted conditions, and the change was in the “U.S. national security interest,” a spokesperson said. 

Pray for wisdom for officials in the State and Defense Departments, as well as others, in distributing American taxpayer dollars to foreign countries. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

A bipartisan group in the House led by Representative Michael Waltz of Florida is looking to pass the Afghan Adjustment Act. The bill would provide a path to permanent status in the U.S. for Afghan allies evacuated from their home country. 

Pray for federal legislators as they consider the legislation that would “reward” Afghanis who worked with the U.S. military against the Taliban and who were evacuated from their country when the U.S. withdrew. 


The House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party issued a subpoena to the City of Redlands, California, regarding an unlicensed China-linked biolab. The committee has requested documents, photographs, and videos related to the illegal lab in which at least 20 potentially infectious agents were discovered in medical waste. 

Pray for members of committees as they investigate entities located in this nation that are connected to China. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Southern Ohio U.S. District Court heard oral arguments from the Chamber of Commerce and the federal government in a lawsuit that challenges the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Program. Judge Michael Newman praised the “high level of arguments” and acknowledged “time constraints” in ruling on a request for a preliminary injunction within the next two weeks. 

Pray for wisdom for Judge Newman as he considers the ramifications of his rulings.
