Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

Secretary of State Antony Blinken participated in the High-Level Meeting on Haiti convened by the Conference of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in Jamaica. Discussions focused on the political turmoil and ways to support Haiti during its political transition. Haitit’s prime minister resigned after gangs coordinated to take over control of much of Port-au-Prince.

For wisdom for the president and secretary of state as they respond to unrest in Haiti and other nations.

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington and Senator Shelley Moore Capito wrote a letter to President Biden stating that the terms of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2022 require confirmation of special envoys in the State Department after the president appointed John Podesta to replace Special Climate Envoy John Kerry.

Pray for the members of Congress to be discerning in their oversight of federal agencies.


The House Financial Services Committee, chaired by Representative Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, heard testimony this week from executives and academics regarding the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s recent action addressing fees in the credit card and private equity industry.

Pray for congressional committees as they assess the measures and policies of executive branch agencies.

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court submitted a 2025 budget request to Congress for an increase for security personnel for the court and the private homes of the nine justices, and expand the existing Supreme Court Police. The U.S. Marshals Service has reported that serious threats against federal judges rose to 457 in fiscal year 2023, from 224 in fiscal 2021.  

Pray for the safety of Supreme Court justices and federal judges as threats to themselves and their families increase.
