A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

This discussion will continue the posting of Presidential Prayer Team alerts for 2017.  I encourage you to post prayers or pray on your own in response to the alerts.  Many Christian leaders believe that we are at a crossroads in the path of the United States - will we once again become a country that God uses for his purposes in the world, or will we continue down a path that takes us further away from God's purposes?  This is not primarily a political question - it's a spiritual question.  And prayer is our best spiritual weapon.  Please join in praying for our country!

Today will be President Trump’s first full day back in the White House following his tour of Asia. He arrived at 10:45 PM last night. Many are curious about the president’s perspective on the trip and his plans going forward in regards to the relationships with the nations he visited. The White House has not released any official statements, but the president said that a major announcement would come as soon as he was back in the White House.  The time and date have yet to be set.

There is a lot of information for the president and his administration to process. Trade relationships, military and economic aid, and future partnerships are all still being evaluated. The future of foreign policy and relations could dramatically shift depending on the decisions that they reach in the next few days.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For wisdom for the president as he works through all of the details of the trip with his staff.
  • For discernment as the president and staff make decisions to reshape or strengthen American relationships abroad.
  • For unity among the leadership as they continue to work towards what is in the best interest of the American people.

The House of Representatives meets today and will vote on the tax reform bill. A lot of time and effort has gone into constructing the bill, negotiating the details, and campaigning around the nation. For the president, this is an important day, as he believes it will reshape the American economy and have massive positive impact for middle class American’s and businesses. Many believe that the passage of this bill will be a watershed moment as congress works to keep campaign promises that they made in the last election.

Republicans are confident that they have enough votes, but due to concerns from Democrats and even some Republicans about specific portions of the bill, the future of tax reform is still uncertain.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For President Trump as he continues to lead and work with both the Senate and House of Representatives on tax reform.
  • For wisdom and integrity for representatives, that they would do what is in the best interest of the American people when they vote today.
  • For unity for the nation’s leaders as they work to shape the future of the country.

Following the House’s vote to pass their version of a tax reform plan, the Senate Finance Committee approved its own tax bill. They will now send it to the Senate floor to be debated and voted on following the Thanksgiving holiday. Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah said, “This is a good bill that delivers on our promise to provide middle class tax relief and grow our economy.” The president expressed his appreciation and praised congress for taking another step towards delivering on campaign promises.

Today the President will be meeting with several collegiate championship sports teams at the White House, but the full list of teams attending has not been provided.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For the president as he meets with collegiate athletes that represent schools from across the nation
  • For congress as they continue to press forward on legislation and tax reform
  • For the athletes that visit the White House, that they would be good role models for those that look up to them and represent well the schools they attend.

A lot of speculation has come up recently about the potential retirement of Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is 81 years of age. While nothing is confirmed, some guess he may announce his retirement by the end of the year. Because of this, President Trump is already compiling a list of potential Supreme Court Justices.

On Friday, the president added five more names to that list. The White House released a statement, which read, “The president remains deeply committed to identifying and selecting outstanding jurists in the mold of Justice Gorsuch. These additions, like those on the original list released more than a year ago, were selected with input from respected conservative leaders."

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For wisdom for Justice Kennedy as he decides when to retire.
  • For wisdom and discernment for the president as he evaluates each of the possible candidates.
  • For the president that he will choose the best fit for the position and that it would be in the best interest of the nation.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Presidential Prayer Team!

Today the president will celebrate Thanksgiving with his family. There’s no public schedule, but the president is actively keeping tabs on a number of things. A navy plane crashed in the Philippine Sea and, at the time of release, 3 sailors were still missing. Argentina lost contact with a military submarine with 45 crew members and President Trump issued an order for the United States to aid in the search and rescue.

The president will be spending the day with his family and is also expected to find some time to rest and relax. He may play a few rounds of golf over the holiday before heading back to the White House.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For the president to be able to rest and feel invigorated when returning to the White House.
  • For the missing sailors and the crews carrying out the search and rescue.
  • For the families of the sailors as they wait to hear the status of their loved ones.

The last event of the day will be at a private residence, but is still expected to benefit the re-election campaign and the RNC.

The president is expected to return to the White House mid-afternoon.

 

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For safety for President Trump as he travels to New York City.

 In an official proclamation from the White House, President Trump declared December as Nation Impaired Driving Prevention month. “On average, every 50 minutes, a person in the United States dies in a vehicle crash involving alcohol,” the official statement began. The president continued and added that in 2012, over 4.2 million adults admitted driving impaired at least once within a 30 day period.

He continued by saying that “driving while impaired, even after one drink, can dramatically change the lives of drivers, passengers, innocent bystanders, and their loved ones. My Administration is committed to raising awareness about the dangers of impaired driving and to eliminating it from our communities,”

In the end, he called out the responsibility of each American to do what is right, “Ultimately, the responsibility for preventing impaired driving lies with each of us. We care for our loved ones when we keep them safe and prevent them taking the wheel after drinking alcohol. By taking action to educate our fellow Americans, through coordinated efforts with family, friends, neighbors, schools, churches, and community organizations, we can reduce deaths and accidents arising from impaired driving.”

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For the president as he leads in areas such as helping bring about cultural change through raising awareness.

  • For the nation that all Americans would heed such calls to action and responsibility.

  • For the local law enforcement officers as they work to keep Americans safe.

The President's Schedule

  • 11:20AM EST The President delivers remarks at a Trump victory finance breakfast

Continuing with a tradition started by George W. Bush in 2001, President Trump will host a Hanukkah reception at the White House today. Attendees will include the heads of American Jewish organizations, Jewish members of Congress, and Jewish members of the administration.

Historically, the president has taken part in lighting a Menorah and delivering remarks. It has yet to be announced what the President’s role will be for this year.

Unlike any previous president, President Trump’s relationship to the Jewish holiday is unique as his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, are Orthodox Jews.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For the president as he continues to build relationships with the diverse American people.
  • For the president and first family as they attend the celebration.
  • For wisdom as the president speaks.
  • For safety for all of the attendees that they would enjoy their time.

Pray for President Trump today as he is traveling to Florida to attend a campaign event at the Pensacola Bay Center. He is expected to speak on ways to improve the lives of Americans and on what people can expect from his administration. Additionally, he may touch on the efforts of his administration and congress to cut taxes. Thousands are expected to attend.

While the White House has not released specific details regarding the event, Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton Beach said that “The president has great affection for Northwest Florida. In the time I’ve spent with him, he attributes his win in the state of Florida to the enthusiasm in our region, so I think he’s coming back to say ‘thank you.’”

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For safety for President Trump as he travels
  • For wisdom as he speaks on issues that are close to his heart.
  • For attendees to have clarity into the vision and ideas that the president may express through this event.

The president is scheduled to be in Mar-a-Lago today before heading back to the White House this afternoon. He is in Mar-a-Lago as a stay over from his campaign rally in Florida and visit to the Civil Rights Museum in Mississippi. Pray with us for rest as he prepares to go into a busy week.

Since the House of Representatives and Senate passed different versions of the tax bill, they need to consolidate and merge the two versions into one before it can be sent to President Trump. House and Senate negotiators said that they have been working through the weekend to put together the pieces.

President Trump has openly praised the efforts of Congress while still applying pressure to lawmakers so that they keep their promise to deliver before Christmas.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For rest for the president as he looks to tackle many end of the year issues next week.
  • For time for him and the First Family to be together without distractions.
  • For safety as he travels back to Washington D.C.

President Trump is scheduled to participate in a signing ceremony for Space Policy Directive 1 in the Oval Office today.

President Trump is deeply invested in America’s future in space exploration and he will need prayer as he looks to reshape this sector.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

Late into Tuesday night, negotiators from both houses in Congress were still rushing to put the final pieces together for the tax plan. Their goal is to merge the Senate and House versions of the tax plan before voting on the new version and sending it to the president. They are wrestling with keeping as many deductions as they can while still trying to address the possibility of significantly adding to the national debt over the next decade.

The president has invited congressional negotiators to the White House for lunch today and will be discussing current progress as well as outlining the next steps. President Trump is scheduled to follow up with a live event where he will speak on tax reform, give progress updates, and be joined by several middle-class families who would benefit from the new legislation.

As the Lord Leads, please pray:

  • For the president as he works with congressional leaders on completing the details of tax reform.
  • For the president as he speaks to the public and answers concerns expressed by many Americans.
  • For congressional leaders as they continue to adjust the legislation that they would do what is in the best interest of the American people.
