Thursday, May 16

Today, the justices of the Supreme Court are holding a non-argument session conference day.

The justices are anticipated to consider whether they will accept 2nd Amendment challenges to bans on “assault weapons” by Maryland and Illinois.

They may also consider a second case regarding the right to bear arms in which New York City bases gun approvals on the “good moral character” of the applicant. The statute had been ruled unconstitutional in district court, but the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals allowed the standard to remain in effect.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Supreme Court justices to receive God’s wisdom as they consider cases that argue the constitutionality of state laws and city ordinances.
  • For Chief Justice John Roberts to be led by the Lord as he presides over the high court.
  • That the president and officials in his administration would properly uphold laws passed by Congress.
