Issue 621 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said, in testimony before the Senate, that foreign students who have expressed support for terrorism ought to have their visas rescinded immediately. 

Pray for Secretary Mayorkas and Secretary of State Blinken as they consider the deportation of students who have been protesting in support of terrorists. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative Jim Banks of Indiana introduced legislation to provide parents with support as they safeguard their children from gender reassignment surgery and transgender ideologies. States that discriminate against parents or guardians would be ineligible for federal aid under the Guaranteeing Unalienable and Anatomical Rights for Dependents (GUARD) Act. 

Pray for legislators to provide parents the federal legal right to protect their children. 


The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Federal Government Surveillance heard testimony from the director of the Bureau of Prisons on the maltreatment and living conditions of politically persecuted January 6 defendants. Reports claim that some defendants have been held in prisons, some in solitary confinement, without having yet had a trial, and without the availability of bail. 

Pray for members of Congress as they evaluate what appears to be a “two-tiered system of justice” in the U.S. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

A U.S. District Court judge blocked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from enforcing the ban on AR-15-style handguns equipped with pistol braces. The judge stated that the rule was unlawful. “Public safety concerns must be addressed in ways that are lawful. This rule is not,” he said. 

Pray for judges across the country who are hearing and deciding cases regarding the Bill of Rights under the Constitution.
