I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray for improved oversight of our prisons with this new appointment. We also pray for justice for the young women who were violated through Epstein's pedophile network.

Attorney General William Barr replaced acting Bureau of Prisons Director Hugh Hurwitz Monday, days after Jeffrey Epstein died in federal custody.

“I have asked Mr. Hurwitz to return to his responsibilities as assistant director of BOP’s reentry services division, where he will work closely with me in overseeing the implementation of one of the Department’s highest priorities, the First Step Act,” Barr said in a statement.

Barr replaced Hurwitz with former BOP Director Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, who served as bureau director from 1992 to 2003. Monday’s appointment is the second time Barr has selected Sawyer to lead the BOP — he was attorney general when she was selected for the post in the waning days of the first Bush administration. Thomas Kane will serve as Sawyer’s deputy.

“Under Dr. Hawk Sawyer’s previous tenure at the bureau, she led the agency with excellence, innovation, and efficiency, receiving numerous awards for her outstanding leadership,” Barr said. “I am confident Dr. Hawk Sawyer and Dr. Kane will lead BOP with the competence, skill, and resourcefulness they have embodied throughout their government careers.”

Congressional lawmakers in both parties have pressed the Justice Department to investigate the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death and hold negligent parties accountable. GOP Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska sent Barr a particularly blistering letter on Aug. 10, warning the attorney general that “heads must roll” within the department.

“The Department of Justice failed, and today Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirators think they might have just gotten one last sweetheart deal,” he wrote. “Every single person in the Justice Department — from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer — knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him.”

“Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy,” the attorney general said during remarks to the Fraternal Order of Police in New Orleans on Aug. 12.

Lord, thank You for this man with backbone, and I love for truth and justice. Give Your angels charge concerning him and his family to protect his going out and his coming in all the days of his life. Thank You that You will accomplish all that you’ve chosen this man to do. Confirm that works at his hands.

    Thank You Lord for continuing to expose the lies and reveal the truths in all of this. Thank You that truth will prevail. Thank You that You Alone are the Judge. We trust You in this, Lord. We thank You for holding the people accountable that need to be. We pray for justice for all of the innocent victims in these heinous crimes against these innocents. Bring healing and restoration to each one. In Jesus Name, amen and amen!

Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm fueling Jeffrey Epstein’s dark past from coming to light. Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground, in Jesus name. Amen.
