THANK GOD H.R.1 IS DYING IN THE SENATE

Father, continue to protect our nation and help us to call on Your name.

Democrats in the Senate are facing the fact that their sweeping election overhaul bill, S.1 (the “For the People Act”), will likely die in the upper chamber.

IFA intercessors sent thousands and thousands of messages to representatives and senators about this bill. You prayed and you acted and the bill is dead!

Caucus leaders are beginning to contemplate pivoting to a vehicle with broader appeal, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, a beefed-up version of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that would restore and extend mandatory oversight from the Department of Justice over election procedures in jurisdictions deemed to have histories of prejudicial voting laws.

Though Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have repeatedly emphasized the importance of passing H.R. 1/S. 1, the Senate bill is currently stuck in a partisan deadlock in committee with no clear path toward passage.

Last week, Democrats met to brainstorm how to move forward, but no conclusion was reached, and some Democrats — including Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a key swing vote in the 50-50 Senate — declined to participate in the conversation at all.  . . .

S. 1 is “too darn broad, and we got no bipartisan support,” Manchin said last week. . . .

Even Democrats to the left of Manchin are signaling that S. 1 may not be worth a fight that will likely end in defeat. . . .

It is that imperative to find an election reform vehicle that can unify the party that has some in the caucus eyeing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act — which Manchin has said he will support — as a pragmatic alternative.

On Monday, Manchin and moderate Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska sent a letter to the leaders of Congress encouraging the reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (i.e., the John Lewis bill). The letter signals centrist support for voting reform in a form more modest than S. 1. — but that might not be enough for some Democrats.

Murphy cautioned that the John Lewis bill, which has not yet been filed in this Congress (a version — H.R. 4 — was introduced in December of 2019), does not go far enough. . . .

Pragmatically, some Democrats fear that failure to deliver on S. 1 will mean disaster in 2022 for more reasons than one. Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley, a progressive, says that giving up on the transformative election reform package will signal weakness to the base. . . .

A recent analysis by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU’s School of Law found that H.R. 1 is the single highest priority for progressive voters, who believe it will counter the wave of election integrity reforms adopted by GOP-majority legislatures across the country. . . .

Republicans vehemently reject H.R. 1/S.1 as a gratuitous solution to a non-existent problem. They have labeled the bill a power grab by Washington Democrats intent on federalizing elections to make it extremely difficult for the party out of power to regain control. . . .

Many black conservatives have stepped forward to denounce the racial condescension implied in Democrat efforts to stigmatize voter ID requirements as “voter suppression” tactics targeting blacks. . . .

Schumer has promised to bring S. 1 to the floor for a vote by August, giving him about two months to come up with a viable strategy to overcome the significant obstacles currently impeding passage of the bill. The House Judiciary Committee is gearing up for hearings that will lead to the reintroduction of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act later this summer.

Republicans, meanwhile, hope that holdouts remain holdouts. . . .

  1. Lord God, you tell us to be anxious for nothing. We’re trying Lord. But daily we are bombarded with evil! It seems Satan is enjoying victory
    after victory! Father please help us stop him! He is using leaders that we literally chose to put in office! How can this be? Were we truly blind in regard to the character of these individuals Lord? Where was our discernment? How did we fail? Father, help us to STOP what we put in action. Forgive us our sins, both known and unknown. Grant us wisdom to undo the wrongs that are in place. I ask that You choose both Republicans & Democrats, that You can trust, and show them The Plan you have in mind. I ask that You give them much wisdom and courage to do Your Will. Father we love Israel! President Trump did all he could to help and protect her. Biden and his Administration is doing everything in their power to destroy her! Help us to help You Father.
    Thy Will be done…….., by us. Amen.

    Amen! 10
  2. Thank you mighty Jesus! Don’t cease praying brothers and sister’s. The enemy keeps trying other tactics to take hold of our nation, kids, freedoms, and faith. But the devil is a lier and we who are in Jesus shall prevail but we must continue to fight by prayer and action. Pray for Israel.

    Amen! 63
  3. What encouragement to prayers and intercessors and to GOD BE ALL THE GLORY. ” I have posted watchmen on the walls , O Jerusalem; they will not be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give Him on rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” May we persevere and remember we are “seated in the heavens with Christ and take up our sword and use the authority God has given to us. This was very encouraging, but let us be “resalute” like Jesus as He went into Jerusalem knowing the cross was waiting, but forged ahead to win the battle. We praise Your Holy Name.

    Amen! 48
  4. Thank you Father! Please continue to give us hope and strength to pray and fight for this and all the other dangerous bills concerning the pre-born, infanticide, communist censorship, USA financial integrity and for your values to rule our Country once more. Thank you IFA for your tireless and superior coverage and un-compromised news and prayer points.

    Amen! 59
  5. I praise God that this bill looks like it will not pass. What we are need are fair, honest elections, and voter ID needs to be reinstated in every state. Thank You, God for intervening, and thanks to all the people who prayed.

    Amen! 78
  6. We have to remain vigil and continue to pray faithfully for our nation. We need people to understand that having honest elections is important and having someone prove they are who they say they are is NOT voter suppression. Making sure that mail in votes are valid and true is NOT voter suppression. Making sure voting rolls are updated and accurate is NOT voter suppression. Making sure there is no ballot harvesting is NOT voter suppression. We want to make sure that elections are true and accurate to give confidence to citizens of the United States. We want to make it easy to vote and harder to cheat. We can not give up hope that the good will win over the evil that seeks to change our country into something it was NEVER intended to be. We must resist the lies with truth and respect.

    Amen! 93
  7. Praise the Lord! However, there is a plan b the John Lewis Voting Act that is just as bad. This act is supported by Joe from WV. The act would use the DOJ to Federalize the voting process in all 50 states. The corrupt DOJ would step over states rights to run elections in the constitution and run the elections. It’s another back door way for the elites to hold power. Pray that this attempt doesn’t get passed either.

    As a nation I want everyone to vote that is eligible and as a nation we don’t have voter suppression concerns as we did 5 decades ago. As a nation we have grown and been inclusive in capturing and making voting accessible for eligible legal votes. I just don’t want the Federal government to over step its boundaries clearly stated in the constitution on voting and I know my state rights/authority. Please pray neither get passed but sensible voter integrity laws.

    Amen! 82
  8. Praise god! I hope and pray that this is but a harbinger of what is going to happen to all of these radical attempts to legislate socialism in our nation. I am just very grateful that our intercession, including sending letters to our legislators, has indeed made a difference. Lord Jesus, I pray that all of the attempts to pass socialistic legislation by our governments will fail miserably. We are grateful that You fight our battles, and that you go ahead of us every time, making a way where there would seem to be no way. Thank you, Jesus!

    Amen! 78
  9. Yes thank you God that you have heard our prayers concerning HR1! But let us continue to pray until we know this is COMPLETELY dead.
    And the same for HR5

    Amen! 83
  10. Our KY Secretary of State implemented voting reform by requiring ID, advance in-person voting for 2 weeks which worked well for the 2020 election. The voting rolls are being purged of inaccuracies and we will have a much more accurate voting system. All states need to take on similar processes to ensure voter integrity.

    Amen! 105
