Praying for Our Leaders in Government

Executive Branch: Pray for the President and his Administration

U.S. Postmaster Louis DeJoy has announced that the early implementation of some of the USPS modernization plans will be paused until January 2025. The decision came after bipartisan senators recommended delaying the plan for extensive mail processing operation changes.

Pray for discernment for Postmaster DeJoy as he oversees efforts to modernize and streamline USPS operations.

Legislative Branch: Pray for Senators and Representatives in Congress

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York led a small bipartisan group to recommend at least $32 billion in funding to implement policies to support and safeguard the development of artificial intelligence (AI) over the next three years. Senator Schumer said, “It’s complicated, it’s difficult, but we can’t afford to put our head in the sand.”

Pray for federal legislators to receive God’s wisdom as they seek to provide support and safeguard the development of AI technology.


The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, chaired by Representative Sam Graves of Missouri, heard testimony this week on the progress of the recovery of the Francis Scott Key bridge collapse. Witnesses included leaders from the U.S. Coast Guard, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Highway Administration, and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Pray for the members of congressional committees as they hold hearings and provide oversight for agencies and projects of the Executive Branch.

Judicial Branch: Pray for Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges

The Supreme Court ruled that, under the Copyright Act statute of limitations, copyright infringement damages may be recovered beyond the three years before a lawsuit is filed as long as the filing occurs within three years of the discovery of the infringement.

Pray for wisdom for the Supreme Court justices as they determine and write opinions in dozens of outstanding cases.
