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.

IN THE NEWS: Computer crashes have become a common explanation — whether true or not — in the federal government for not having records. In addition to the EPA situation, lawmakers are investigating the actions of Lois Lerner at the IRS and whether the tax collection agency targeted conservative groups. But members of Congress have been told that a hard drive crash caused the loss of many documents related to Ms. Lerner. Likewise, during the George W. Bush administration, many relevant e-mails and documents were reported lost during several government controversies. Housed in a large, ornate building on Pennsylvania Avenue, the National Archives and Records Administration is perhaps best known to most as the home of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But it serves another important function as well: collecting, recording and keeping the government’s vast amount of communications, documents and e-mails. And now the National Archives offices want answers for lost documents.

Executive Branch Prayer Needs


President Obama signed an executive order that protects LGBT workers from discrimination by federal contractors, with no exemption for religious organizations. The move comes after Congress failed to address the issue.

The Obama Administration announced its plans to improve the safety of oil trains, a step meant to address a series of fiery derailments that have raised fears about the dark side of the North American energy boom.

Pray for President Obama and his Cabinet and advisers as they issue orders and regulations on numerous issues.
