I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask that your hand would guide these leadership appointments. Put your people with your wisdom and your truth in power, God, to guide Congress back toward your paths. Thank you, Lord.

We need God’s hand to guide these leadership decisions in a very important week for Congress. Let’s pray for righteous leaders.

From Fox News. House and Senate Republicans are in for a chaotic week after disappointing midterms – with GOP leadership elections set for both chambers amid simmering discontent with party bosses.

Connect with others in your state in prayer.

 

In the House, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is the only candidate declared for House speaker. However, members of the conservative Freedom Caucus are suspicious of McCarthy and aim to extract procedural concessions from the minority leader that would empower their members.

On the Senate side, some conservative members are calling to delay GOP leadership elections, currently scheduled for Wednesday. …

Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., Josh Hawley, R-Mo., all sent similar tweets Friday. National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chair Rick Scott, R-Fla., also called for the elections to be delayed on “Sunday Morning Futures.” …

Even Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who has a history as a moderate, joined the calls for a delay Sunday, citing the Herschel Walker race. However, GOP leaders signaled that elections will happen Wednesday as scheduled.

“I expect a full and open discussion beginning at Tuesday’s policy lunch on our path forward. On Wednesday, we will meet again for our scheduled conference elections,” Senate GOP Conference Chair John Barrasso, R-Wyo., wrote in a note to GOP senators, which was obtained by Fox News Digital. …

Much of the criticism from the right flank of the Senate GOP is for Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. They argue he has taken too many bipartisan votes to hand Democrats wins, and they criticize his support for Ukraine war aid. They are also slamming McConnell for spending millions backing Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, for re-election against a GOP challenger while shunning some Trump-backed candidates in other states. …

Both McConnell and McCarthy have support from the vast majority of their members. McConnell has a larger cushion because Senate GOP party elections only require a simple majority of the conference – unlike House speaker elections.

McCarthy, meanwhile, could face opposition from somewhere between 15 and 20 of the caucus’ members if he refuses to work with them on their demands for reform, a source familiar with the dynamics in the Freedom Caucus said. Those members are not necessarily opposed to McCarthy, but they want him to make changes to increase their influence before voting for him. …

No more rinos is very strong in my heart and mind. Need a strong leader and a strong stand. There is so much to deal with and correct and bring to justice!!! MayGod prevail in Jesus’s Name.

Lord, every person involved in this process, including those in leadership positions, need wisdom. Some need the wisdom to step down from their long-held positions. Some need the wisdom to listen to wise counsel. Some need the wisdom to listen to You. Lord, crack open hardened consciences, hearts and minds of men and women in leadership. Help them to hear Your voice saying “This is the path; these are the people; go this way.” This is my prayer and my plea with You, Father, in this time in my nation. Thank You. Amen.
