Issue 631 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

President Joe Biden met with his reproductive rights task force, unveiling new steps to ensure access to conception and emergency abortions at hospitals. “Since the Court overturned Roe v. Wade, every single time abortion has been on the ballot,“ he stated. “We have to do what the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs would allow, and that is: Congress must codify Roe v. Wade for all the states in America.” 

Pray for the president and his administration to see how wrong it is to terminate life in the womb. 

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative Lori Chavez-DeRemer of Oregon sent a letter to the Treasury Department expressing “deep concern” over a Chinese Communist Party member’s multimillion-dollar land purchase. She asked for an investigation into the failure to report the “foreign adversarial purchase of American agricultural land.” 

Pray for legislators as they seek to determine the national security ramifications of land being acquired by CCP members. 


PRAY FOR CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEES

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has been called to testify before the House Armed Services Committee. Members of the committee seek answers to questions concerning the secretary’s recent absence from duty without giving notice to the proper leadership at a time when the nation’s national security issues are increasing. 

Pray for complete transparency and a level of accountability from the defense secretary when he appears before the congressional committee. 

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The U.S. Supreme Court heard two companion cases concerned with the extent to which Congress has authorized government agencies to take action as long as the agency feels their interpretations of ambiguous laws are “reasonable” under a legal precedent known as Chevron deference. The justices questioned whether the actions taken were, in fact, reasonable, with discussion around the meaning of “ambiguous.” Decisions on both cases are not expected until June, but they may have a significant impact on the administrative state. 

Pray for the Supreme Court justices and the many cases they will be deciding this term.
