Twenty-one Senate Democrats are urging President Joe Biden to include recurring direct payments to individuals in his $3 trillion infrastructure plan, saying the $1,400 stimulus checks in the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill is not enough.

Democratic Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden and 20 other Senate Democrats sent a letter to Biden on Tuesday asking him to include the recurring direct payments as well as automatic unemployment insurance extensions in his “Build Back Better” infrastructure plan which Biden plans to introduce Wednesday, The Hill reported.

“We urge you to include recurring direct payments and automatic unemployment insurance extensions tied to economic conditions in your Build Back Better long-term economic plan,” the Democrats wrote in the letter to Biden.

Biden signed his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan into law on March 11 which provided $1,400 checks to most Americans. . . .

According to the New York Times, some of the proposals included in the infrastructure package would be free community collegeuniversal pre-K and a nationwide paid leave program. Republicans fear the plan would cause a massive tax hike.  . . .

“We’re hearing the next few months might bring a so-called ‘infrastructure’ proposal that may actually be a Trojan horse for massive tax hikes and other job-killing left-wing policies,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a floor speech on March 22.
Editor’s Note: Widening the reach and legislating more dependence on the federal government brings us more in alignment to socialist philosophies.  The more that the government creates dependency, the greater control they have. This “footnote” in the massive infrastructure bill is an important issue for which to be praying.

Pray against the further embracing of the spirit of socialism. Share your prayers for our governmental leaders as they make decisions about our economy. . .

Boycott! People wake up!

Joan Diane Bartruff

Father, You knew this would happen. Your wisdom, Your knowledge, is incomprehensible to Your created creatures. We know from Revelations, governments will be judged when Your Son, Jesus returns as the King of King and Lord of Lords. This same Lord, who died as a pauper, on the cross of Calvary; unbeknowst to most who knew him, provided a far, far greater deliverance for mankind than one from the rogue and cruel government of Rome. So, we know as history reveals, Rome was defeated. Rome’s government was relegated to
a pile of ashes that were added to the piles of other governments.

I pray the greed, self interests, lack of fiscal responsibility, waste, unbridled spending, favoritism, meism, and whatever else drives legislation, lawmakers, voters to favor a Socialistic, Communistic state of government would by halted by You and Your Heavenly Army. In Jesus’ Name I rebuke the powers causing
unjustified, irresponsible, economically destructive spending policies in the US government.

That America would be so deeply in debt reflects misjudgement, mishandling, mistaken, unwise, inadequate
governing. It seems to only worseen when we look at the numbers. Lord, I cannot even imagine what a trillion dollars would look like if it were in a pile in front of me. I pray those who like the idea of
government “bailing them out” will remember it is their money that is “bailing them out”. Seems an oxymoron, but it is true if they have ever paid taxes to government. Impress on the minds of all citizens, “there is no free lunch”.

Educate, all citizens to the truths government is for the people, of the people, and by the people. Help all to oppose those elected to office wo have forgotten their true duty to the people. Cause them to repent, and turn to you for wisdom strength, and guidance to provoke sound economic policies for the good of all the people.

I pray for America a government that can be judged, by Jesus on His return, to be one where Jesus will reward those who were given the great responsibility of governing a, “Well done good and faithful servant”.

God bless America, Lord, In the Name of Jesus, Savior and Lord. Amen
America’s government.

This appears to be the old adage of taking money from one pocket and putting into another. Eventually this money has to be repaid. Eventually everyone will be taxed enormously. The national debt cannot continue to grow without repercussions. Somebody has to pay. This keeps going, socialism will reign. Every one will be paying all one’s hard earned money to government who in turn will give a portion back to pay for necessities. I hope this makes sense.

If the money included in the Covid relief bills had been given directly to the American citizen, each person would have received over $40,000 instead of checks for $600 and $1400. We are being bled to death economically. Our freedoms are being undermined, the Constitution jeopardized and the intent of the Democrat party is to destroy this country bit by bit and as quickly as possible. Call your state legislators and governors and encourage legislation at the state level to take back our constitutional guaranteed rights. Call your attorney general and encourage law suits on every unconstitutional bill coming out of the federal government. PRAY LIKE YOUR FAMILY’S FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT BECAUSE IT DOES.

Father, give us discernment to not cave to this socialistic chaos where we find ourselves. Return us to the work ethic that brings our country back to the Republic it has been or we are doomed to be slaves to the government!

I agree with you in prayer.☦️

Dear Lord, I pray that the leaders of our country become God-fearing and help them to know they WILL be held accountable for each and every decision and act. Lord we need Your intervention. In Jesus name, Amen.

Lord, we again ask for Your holy hand to expose the hidden and deceptive intentions of this administration. We ask for You Lord to turn the hearts and minds of certain people within this administration to You and place a deep desire to tell the truth to America. Many are lacking courage and are afraid of retribution against them Lord. We ask that You would protect them as they come forth. Allow the truth to come forth Lord and we declare that it will NOT be hidden. We pray that our legislators/leaders on both party sides will find common ground and true unity in opposing and exposing the “hidden elements” in much of the legislation being deceitfully & forcibly rushed upon America. Supply them with courage to not only speak out against but act in opposition to this type of deceptive legislation. Give them fortitude, clarity and strength for we know that they feel tired because of everything that our enemy Satan is trying to do to this nation. In Jesus name amen.

    Well said! I agree with this excellent prayer and say, “So be it, in the magnificent name of Jesus!”

Lord God,

Your Name is above all Names, You Power is revealed throughout creation and You alone sit on the throne. We understand that many of the challenges we are face are in direct relationship to our sin. We are suffering from the consequences of our selfish, arrogant, rebellious mindset. We are living Romans 1. Some are even being led astray to think we are in the Tribulation, but for those who study the Word, we know that these are just the foretaste of what will come during the Great Tribulation. Help us to stand firm and hold fast to Your Word. Everything that has been outlined in the Old Testament will come to pass. All prophecies about Jesus literally came true! We must trust in You and not in man. Help us to encourage those we love and care about to read Your Word and allow Your Holy Spirit to penetrate these hearts. Remind us that when we serve one another and even when we serve strangers we are serving You. Oh Lord Jesus, we love You, We trust You and we serve You for You are the Perfect Lamb worthy of all praise. Thank You for leaving heaven and living among us. Thank You for showing us how to live lives that honor God and glorify His Name. Thank You for dying on the cross so that we could spend eternity with You…Jesus Paid it all, All to Him I owe! Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.” Thank You Jesus! In Your Name we stand, we pray and we believe! Amen and Maranatha COME QUICKLY

Father God give wisdom from above to your remnant to be salt and light in these dark times. Cause to be able to give an answer for the hope in us. Strengthen us to live from the place of all good gifts are from you and you promised to see to our needs. In Jesus Holy name. Amen

    Today is April Fool’s Day. May we the people, not become fools for standing in dread and fear of our government. May we rise up in faith and action and pray continually but understand that God expects us to become a voice in the darkness that is trying to overtake America and the world. We must continue to speak truth boldly and unashamed. We must heed Jesus’ instruction to us concerning the last days. We must live holy lives, robes without spot or blemish. We must stand in faith for the souls of our loved ones and fellow man. We must continue to be about the Father’s business, as our first priority. We must lose the mindset that says: Jesus told us these days would come and set back on our laurels. Jesus said to work while it was still day. We are a free nation! We have the bill of rights! We need to fight to appreciate and keep them in prayer and through activism! Let your voice be heard! Send letters, emails, and make phone calls to your representatives, voicing godly values! Our nation is in the churches hands! God works from the church into society, not from society into the church! Pray! Stand! Believe! The Church Triumphant! In Jesus name, is our only hope!

Lord GOD we pray for our freedoms here in America. We pray for a great Christian revival for our country and the world. Continue to expose the evil corruption in our country. We pray for your warring angels to protect us. Expose the Supreme court’s involvement in destroying ourrights and our freedoms. The biden/harris steeling the presidency from President Trump. In your name Jesus we pray. 🙏🇺🇸

The concept of relying on the government to provide support for me is CORRUPT.

The government will have to STEAL the money from taxpayers to give it to other taxpayers.

Instead, we need to drastically reduce the dependency on the government- welfare, food stamps, free health care, free college, etc., etc.

This is INSANE!!!!

    I am in absolute agreement.

    Lord bring this insanity to an end and lift the burden off the taxpayers. I pray for financial provision for those who really need it in a miraculous manner that they may know it comes from You and not the government.
