To Our Members:

Thank you for your patience as we worked through substantial fortification of our web and email operations due to repetitive attacks and attempted break-ins from outside the USA. This required an unforeseen major investment of time, costs and restructuring. We are committed to assure that this full time prayer service, the largest for our nation, remains safe, effective and continually serving our millions of members.

This situation has stretched this ministry to its limit and seriously affected us during the summer when financial support is already very low. We need you to pray ... but also consider a special significant gift to allow us to continue on during this extremely important time for our nation. We are still offering the matching funds, so as you give your gift (or pledge) it will still be DOUBLED.

Legislative Branch

The Legislative Branch consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate, which collectively form the United States Congress. The Constitution grants Congress the sole authority to enact legislation and declare war, the right to confirm or reject Presidential appointments, and substantial investigative powers.

The House of Representatives is composed of 435 elected members from the 50 states in proportion to their total population. There are also 6 non-voting members who represent the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and four other American territories.

The Senate is made up of 100 Senators, with two senators from each state. Until the ratification of the 17th Amendment in 1913. The Vice President serves as the President of the Senate and provides the decisive vote in the event of a tie.

Together, the House of Representatives and the Senate are the lawmakers of the nation. Any piece of legislation must pass through both houses of Congress before it is either vetoed or signed into law by the President.

It is vitally important that Americans pray for wisdom and understanding on behalf of the lawmakers of their nation.

PrayFocusLegislativeJames Inhofe, United States Senator from Oklahoma

James Mountain “Jim” Inhofe was born in November 1934 in Des Moines, Iowa, but his family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma when he was a child. He graduated from Tulsa Central High School, and then served in the U.S. Army. He earned his B.A. degree when he was nearly 40 years old from the University of Tulsa.

Inhofe worked as a businessman in the fields of aviation, real estate and insurance, before becoming involved in politics. He was a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, and later a member of the Oklahoma Senate. He was elected Mayor of the City of Tulsa, and then as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives where he served eight years. He has been a U.S. Senator since November 1994.

Inhofe is married to Kay Kirkpatrick, and they had four children. In November 2013, Inhofe’s son, Dr. Perry Inhofe, died in a plane crash in Oklahoma. Inhofe is a Presbyterian.

IN THE NEWS: “It’s really significant, what’s happening,” Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma said during a television interview. He said that despite the pounding by U.S. forces, ISIS could still inspire followers to attack stateside. He also slammed the President for not coming up with a strategy to defeat ISIS. “He’s going to have to come up with something that we’re going to do because they’re holding another hostage in place and the problem is the president, quite frankly, says all these things and he never does them,” Inhofe said. ISIS is believed to be holding at least four other U.S. prisoners, including journalist Steven Joel Sotloff, who appeared in the ISIS video showing Foley’s execution. The man speaking in that video threatened that Sotloff would be killed next.

PRAY FOR OUR CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers will head to Central America (Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala) on Friday to better understand why waves of migrant children have been crossing the southwest border.

Senator Marco Rubio (Florida) warned President Obama that sweeping executive action on immigration would preclude any meaningful reform from Congress, “closing the door” to any progress in the foreseeable future.

Pray for the members of the House and Senate as they return from their August recess after Labor Day.
