As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the chairs of the committees to seek God’s direction as they consider the various nominees for confirmation.
  • For wisdom for the senators while they review the qualifications of Mr. Whitaker as the FAA has shown the need for strong security leadership.
  • For the president and members of his administration as they choose individuals to appoint to government posts.
