Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of the United States

Loretta Elizabeth Lynch was born in May 1959 in Greensboro, North Carolina. She earned a BA in English and American Literature from Harvard College and a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. Lynch’s first job in the legal field was as a litigation associate for a private law firm. She joined the Eastern District of New York as a drug and violent-crime prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and served as the chief of the Long Island office. She later became the Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District and headed the Brooklyn office.

She was nominated by President Bill Clinton to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. She left that post to become a partner in a private law firm where she remained until January 2010 when President Barack Obama nominated Lynch to again serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

In November 2014, President Obama nominated Lynch to the position of U.S. Attorney General to succeed Eric Holder. She was confirmed by the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, and approved by the Senate in April. She is the first African-American woman, and the second African-American after Eric Holder (and the second woman after Janet Reno) to hold the office of Attorney General.

Lynch is married to Stephen Hargrove. Her husband has two children from a previous marriage. Her father was a Baptist minister, but no religious affiliation was given for Ms. Lynch.


“Justice is a process,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in an interview at the beginning of Community Policing Week. “And I think that justice is not just what happens in court. Justice happens in the streets when people expressed themselves in peaceful protests. And they hold up a mirror to society, and they say to all of us who are working as hard as we can and say, ‘We know you’re doing a lot but we need you to hear that there’s more work to be done.’”

When asked about those who feel the law enforcement system is broken, she said, “I understand your frustration, and I understand how you would feel that way. I remind people that this is a process, that the way of working through a case can take time, a way of working through issues can take time, and that we’re building on the work of people who have gone before us.

“We look back at the arc of history and we see the progress that we have made in this country. That should give people hope that even though they may be in a difficult moment now – they may be in a dark period now – we have always pushed forward, we have always pushed for progress. And we have always, always fought for justice.”

Executive Branch Prayer Needs

Of the current presidential campaign, President Obama told guests at a state dinner it “can seem like Dante’s inferno.” He promised to leave office in January “with a bang.”

Vice President Joe Biden says the U.S. is planning to retaliate against Russia for a series of cyber attacks targeting Democrats, and “it will be at the time of our choosing.”

Pray about the degree of campaign animosity that has reached its tentacles into the Administration.
