Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

FBI Director Christopher Wray told a House committee he has “great concern” about potential terrorists entering the United States. As a result, he said the FBI is aggressively using “all 56 of our joint terrorism task forces.”  

Pray for the agents in the FBI and the work they are doing to counter any threat of terrorism in the U.S. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas expressed disappointment that the Senate rejected a bill to support Israel separate from support for Ukraine. He said, “I’ve been trying to figure this out…They say they want to support Israel, but their actions are different.“ What he discovered was “a significant portion of their base that does not want anyone in their party to support Israel.” 

Pray for members of the House and Senate as they address the antisemitism, both blatant and hidden, that exists in the U.S. Congress. 


PRAY FOR CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEES

Two hearings have been scheduled by the House Energy and Commerce Committee focusing on the nation’s energy security and efforts at emissions reductions. Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers of West Virginia said, “American energy and environmental leadership matters.” 

Pray for committee members as they review America’s international position on matters of energy. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, part of the Interior Department, must hold a large sale of offshore oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico without added ecological protections. The court said the sale was required by the Inflation Reduction Act and must take place within 37 days of November 13. 

Pray for judges in federal courts as they rule on matters related to oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico and its impact on America’s energy economy.
