Almighty God, we lift our government leaders up to You. Give these representatives wisdom, and protect us as a shutdown looms.

The Senate is working to pass a stopgap bill to avoid a shutdown, but it’s unlikely to pass in the House.

From NBC News. Senate leaders released a short-term funding bill Tuesday — with four days left to avert a government shutdown at the end of this month — to keep money flowing until Nov. 17 to give Congress more time to reach a larger agreement.

The bipartisan bill, negotiated between leaders of the Democratic majority and the Republican minority, includes about $6 billion in aid to Ukraine and $6 billion in emergency disaster relief funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. It would also prevent a lapse in Federal Aviation Administration authorities through the end of the year and prevent a pay cut for federal firefighters. …

It’s unclear whether the chamber can pass it before the 12:01 a.m. Sunday deadline, as it would be likely to require unanimous consent to hold a quick vote.

Even if it does pass in time, it’s unclear whether the Republican-led House will approve it …

“A shutdown would be nothing short of a catastrophe for American families, our national security and our economy,” Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Patty Murray, D-Wash., said in a statement. …

Murray, whose office posted a summary of the legislation, added that the bill “keeps our government funded, and provides critical dollars to support communities struck by disaster and support Ukraine at a pivotal moment in its defensive efforts against Putin’s brutal, unprovoked war of aggression.”

Father, You are the God of Miracles and nothing is too difficult for You. We pray and believe for You to supernaturally move Your mighty hand to prevent this shutdown of our government. May this stopgap bill be passed in both the Senate and the House. Move on the hearts of the men and women in both the Senate and the House to convict them by the power of Your Holy Spirit to do the right thing in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Patty Murray (D-Wash) does not care about American Communities! She cares about illegals, and getting them the right to live with tax dollars supporting their housing, food, supplies, and also giving money to Ukraine who fought with the nazis in WW2! While legal Americans are suffering to put food on the table, keep a roof over their heads, find wholesome schools for their children! SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN! STOP EVERY GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF EVERYTHING THAT WASN’T VOTED ON BY THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA! FATHER GOD please put a stop to all corruption and stealing from Americans by our government in JESUS NAME! Let the corruption be removed and restore our government to of the people, by the people, and for the people in JESUS NAME! Amen!
