Wednesday, January 17

Today, President Joe Biden has invited Speaker of the House Mike Johnson of Louisiana, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to the White House to discuss funding for the U.S. border and aid to Ukraine.

At the beginning of the year, Director Shalanda Young of the Office of Management and Budget said that, without further funding from Congress, the Pentagon will not “get big tranches of equipment into Ukraine.”

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Secretary of State Blinken met with Ukrainian President Zelensky at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week. Advisor Sullivan stated, “We’ve got to be able to deliver the necessary resources to Ukraine for the weapons that it needs to be able to achieve the results that it needs.” He added, “I continue to believe and express confidence that we will… after a lot of twists and turns ultimately get there.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and four congressional leaders to be directed by God in their discussions regarding national security and foreign aid.
  • For wisdom for members of Congress as they consider the level of government spending and national debt as they negotiate appropriations.
  • For the Lord to accomplish His purposes in the United States.
