Issue 614 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

President Biden announced the creation of a federal office for gun violence prevention. He appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to head it up and named Stefanie Feldman, a long-time aid on the Domestic Policy Council, to a lead role. 

Pray for the president and his administration as they focus on reducing gun violence across the U.S. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia filed a bipartisan resolution to reverse the chamber’s dress code that had been announced by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. The changes said the Senate would not be enforcing a business dress code that required a coat and tie. A spokesperson from Senator Manchin’s office said the resolution ensures the Senate dress code is “consistent with previous expectations.” 

Pray for members of the Senate as they navigate issues from funding the budget to the appropriate wardrobe for senators. 


Members of the House Homeland Security Committee plan to query Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week on the true costs of the immigration crisis not only on the U.S.-Mexico border but across cities and states where migrants are being settled. There is also the potential for discussions regarding a possible impeachment of the Homeland Security secretary. 

Pray for members of the House Committee as they look at both the financial and human costs of the migrant crisis. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

A U.S. District Court judge struck down an attempt by President Biden’s administration to restrict offshore oil and gas lease sales scheduled to go into effect this week in the Gulf of Mexico. The judge said the government must go through with the lease sale by September 30 under the original conditions. 

Pray for federal judges as they issue decisions regarding energy production and environmental conditions.
