Congressional Democratic leaders proposed Wednesday adding hundreds of billions of dollars for health care, state and local governments, and food stamps to $250 billion in fresh emergency aid President Donald Trump wants to help small businesses weather the coronavirus epidemic.

Trump requested an additional $250 billion for a just-launched small businesses payroll program and is looking to secure congressional passage this week. For that he will need Democratic support.

It is critical to pray for our elected officials as they make decisions in this crisis that may impact generations. Every leader in this article is hyperlinked to their IFA prayer page. Pray and post your prayer so that intercessors can pray in one accord.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer outlined their own priorities in a Wednesday statement.

They say they will approve the $250 billion in assistance to small businesses, but want $125 billion of that channeled through community-based financial institutions that serve farmers, families, women, minorities and veterans.

They’re also calling for an additional $100 billion for hospitals and community health centers to provide testing supplies and protective equipment like masks and gowns. They are seeking another $150 billion for state and local governments to manage the coronavirus crisis.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin requested the additional $250 billion in a private calls to Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellDemocrats largely support it as a component of a broader new aid package.

McConnell wants to swiftly pass it through Congress this week. The House and Senate are all but shuttered, and it’s unclear how the Democrats‘ new request will affect the prospect of holding a vote with just 48 hours notice.

Congress is also racing to craft the next coronavirus rescue package.

Abba Father, the enemy has a plan for this nation and for the world to kill, steal, and destroy. And, LORD, we know you also have a plan to favor and bless your people and our nation. “Trump” the plans of the enemy. Arise from your throne and crush the head of the serpent. May the enemies of our land flee 7 ways before us. Send them back to the pit where they belong. We ask for this nation’s resources to be used for YOUR honor and glory. We pray against fraudulent uses of the monies. Restore our land and use what the enemy is using for evil intent to be turned around and used to bring honor and glory to you. We pray for our government leaders to be led by your Spirit. And may everyone know YOU are the one who delivered our nation and the world from this pandemic. Bring multitudes to know you. Reveal yourself! We give all glory and praise to you for what you have done, for what you are doing, and for what you will do for us and our people. Thank you, Abba! Thank you, Jesus! In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

Father God, Your kingdom come and Your will be done concerning this new huge financial package to assist Small Businesses and others. Please reveal before it is passed if the $$$ will be misappropriated for special interests that do not align with Your Word and the original intent of this bill.

May the enemy, who is “The Father of Lies” stop manipulating those he has control over, whether they know it or not! May all schemes of the Devil be thwarted and defeated and may Righteousness reign and our nation be guided by Godly leaders whose desire is to turn our nation back into one that fears You and who are aligned with Biblical principals.

May we as believers repent, stop being in love with the world and may Revival come to the USA and throughout the world.

Continue to guide and protect our President, Vice—President, their families, his cabinet, all elected leaders and appointed leaders as they lead our nation. We pray Psalm 91 protection over all of them and their families, their staff and their constituents and colleagues.

We pray this in the mighty name of Jesus,

Heavenly Father we pray for you to intervene in the hearts and minds of our leaders. May your voice be louder in their ears than their thoughts or the noise from the world. Instruct our leaders in right paths for your name sake. We ask for your Holy Spirit to be present, leading guiding and directing as this Aid Package comes up for a Vote. May your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. We put our trust in you Lord, not man. Lord hear our voice, and be merciful to us.

Please just this once, limit your spending to what the President actually requested. Ms Pelosi, just once put America before Democrat politics.

Father, I ask that You reveal any hidden agenda that might be in this stimulus package that the Congress is trying to get passed. Expose all of the pork barrel foolishness that might be hidden in it and don’t let it pass o
if there is money allotted for anything other than relief from the results of Covid-19. Bless those who are trying to do the correct thing for this nation and curse those who are trying to slip their own agendas in this relief bill.
Father, let Thy will be done in this whole world as it is in heaven. Thank You for the many blessing all of the people of this world have been blessed with. Open our spiritual eyes, ears, and mind that we may see, hear and understand all that is happening during this time and that your people will seek Your face and not Your hand more than ever.

In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

Lord we pray for the upper hand of Your Wisdom by Your Spirit prevail – not by might or by power shall this nation be ruled but by Your Spirit Lord – let not one red cent be spent on evil – any Bill that grants dollars be administrated thoroughly and completely so that those who would use it against You and against this nation will be confounded – they will be found out of compliance while the those who honor you fully will be given favor and the switch of intentions and motivations be drawn up short – revealed and disclosed – Lord – give full discernment and supernaturally bring every needed thought and intervention and application unto the minds of your servants and let it be made known on the rooftops and mountain tops and let glory and liberty ring throughout all the land – in Jesus Name – to Him be all glory – Amen!

Lord God Almighty, I pray that you would put hesitation in our leaders minds. I ask Holy Spirit, that you would hover over our National government today. May those Congress and Senate members whom You indwell will hear your voice in their spirits. You said that the Spirit of truth would be our guide, Jesus. We need guidance now. John 16:12-15

Holy Father; We pray Proverbs 11:14 today. Your wisdom is needed. Stir believers voting and negotiating more indebtedness to have Holy red flags from You! Direct them in restraint and give insight,caution and awareness. Please allow Your Word to be a source to guide our leaders in decision making in Jesus’ Name

Heavenly Father, I come humbly before Your throne. I pray for our nation’s leaders as they consider a next round of financial disaster relief that the Holy Spirit speak to each of the elected, conveying caution, that all non-sense and pork funds be canceled from any consideration. Lord, help us to hold our elected accountable for waste included in the first round of emergency relief.

PS, Why would we consider a next relief package when the first one has not been fulfilled, well with the exception of the Kennedy Center getting $25 million and yet they laid off countless employees. Neither I individually nor my company has yet to receive relief from the relief package approved to-date for which we have applied.

This is preoccupying! Where is all this money coming from? The government doesn’t have it. They’re already in debt-massively so. Who’s paying for this? What (or who) are we selling ourselves to? This needs much prayer. Please, Father, help us! Give wisdom and discernment to our leaders and to all of us.

It was revealed this last year that hospitals and some non profits in health care in this state were mskinh 500% PROFIT.
Will this greed ever be addressed instead of more and more from Big Brother?

Father. You know how I struggle to pray for the members of Congress. Some is because You have shown me that in spite of all You will take down the spiritual entities some have given place to. In that they will be brought under the feet of Your army. Is there not a cause I ask You? Stir up Your people Lord and let us arise and Your enemies be scattered. Align this plan with heavens plan and let nothing else be implemented that’s not in agreement with it. I forgive these ruthless politicians as You’ve forgiven me and I release them into Your hands as You are merciful. Let this financial aid be a true aid and not be filled with devious plans. Thwart any plan not needed and send help as needed. In Jesus name

Today, Jesus, would be in the grave as we Celebrate Jesus’s death and resurrection. Let our leaders not look at all the negative circumstances, but turn, and abide in Jesus, listen and Wait to hear what God wants because God knows the begining from the end, we do NOT. Let’s be wise and, patient and slow to make a decision, God has already sent angels to destroy this virus, but what the devil has meant for evil, God is turning around, and 1000 of people are coming to accept Jesus as Lord So , WAIT upon the Lord Do not make any unwise descions Wait upon the Lord
