Issue 633 – Federal Branches

Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Agents in the Drug Enforcement Agency recently seized eight 55-gallon barrels of liquid heroin and arrested four drug traffickers in Oregon. Officials estimate that the nearly 370 gallons would be enough to kill 53 million people, about 16 percent of the U.S. population.

For the president’s drug prevention and control policy officials as they seek to address the opioid crisis and cartel smuggling in the nation.

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Legislation has been proposed in the House of Representatives to prohibit citizens of adversarial nations from owning land in the United States. Representative Mark Alford of Missouri introduced the American Land and Property Protection Act that would bar those from Chinese, Russia, North Korea, and Iran from purchasing American public or private real estate.

Pray for wisdom for Speaker Johnson and members of the House as they deliberate and vote on legislation.


The House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy, Climate, and Grid Security, chaired by Representative Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, held a hearing this week about the export ban on liquified natural gas by President Biden’s administration. The subcommittee is examining the impact the policy has on U.S. energy and economic security.

Pray for House and Senate committees as they seek to ensure adequate energy supplies and resources.

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The justices of the U.S. Supreme Court are hearing oral arguments in the case of the Colorado Supreme Court barring former President Donald Trump from the presidential election ballot based on the Fourteenth Amendment. Colorado and a dozen other states have attempted to remove him for engaging “in insurrection or rebellion.”

Pray for the justices to be discerning regarding President Trump’s actions and words as related to January 6th.
