In this historic time of big changes in Washington, the Trump administration is working every day to help “drain the swamp” and fulfill campaign promises. Pray that the president’s cabinet will be able to correct federal overreach in government areas such as: trade, education, manufacturing, energy, agriculture, corporations, banking, national health care, etc.
Pray the government will get to the truth about the dangerous – and illegal — intelligence leaks that clearly appear to be designed to discredit and derail the Trump presidency. The illegal “Russia” intelligence and spying leaks by key political Obama administration officials is currently being investigated.
Pray SCOTUS will confirm President Trump’s travel ban is constitutional:
The US has a constitutional right to protect its citizens by curtailing immigration policies from known terrorist nations. His executive action temporarily bans travel to the U.S. by people in seven Muslim countries in the Middle East for 90 days; for the stated reason of national security. The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 grants the president the authority to suspend visas from immigrants of certain countries when the U.S. is at war with those countries. ISIS is imbedded in the seven countries that the travel ban affects. The sticking point is a US First Amendment principle, which says that Congress and the president cannot favor one religion over another.
Pray for sanctuary cities:
Liberals are challenging illegal “sanctuary” policies which violate and undermine the rule of law –- and place the public safety at risk! Starting with Texas’ Governor Greg Abbott at least 33 states have introduced immigration enforcement bills since Donald Trump assumed the presidency in January. With the Trump administration’s pursuit of much stricter immigration law enforcement than occurred under former president Obama, many states are eager to join the battle by passing laws requiring their cities and towns to cooperate with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. Some stronghold areas are San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York City.
Pray for Israel and the Middle East:
The mainstream media, the Left, the United Nations, and many governments of the world are determined to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist; including their right to declare Jerusalem as their capital. The Israeli-Palestinian peace process suffers from the fact that almost all “peace initiatives” for that region are doomed to failure because they are based on the false premise that demands Israel return to its pre-1967 borders.
The Islamic Republic of Iran continues to expand its missile program with a third underground ballistic missile production factory, noting that this factory is part of the clerical regime’s plan to continue developing ballistic missiles regardless of UN Security Council resolutions demanding that these programs be curtailed. Newly re-elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani defiantly stated, “Iran does not need the permission of the United States to conduct missile tests.”
Pray for China to help curtail North Korea’s threats:
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in no uncertain terms that North Korea presents a “clear and present danger,” while also criticizing China for ratcheting up the tension over contested Islands in the South China Sea. He believes Beijing will pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile programs even as Washington pushes China to change course in the South China Sea.
