100 Hours: This Week


H.R. 1 - Not Fully Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations (Sponsored by Rep. Thompson (MS))

• Pray for wisdom for our leaders as they seek to fend off those who wish to destroy our freedom. • "And they will live in it securely; and they will build houses, plant vineyards, and live securely, when I execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God." (Ezekiel 28:26)


H.R. 2 - Minimum Wage Increase Without Assistance for Small Businesses (Sponsored by Rep. George Miller)

• Pray for justice for the laborers in this country and those around world. Pray that a raise in the minimum wage does not discourage teenagers from finishing high school. Pray for a separate minimum wage for students under 18 that, perhaps, creates an incentive to stay in school. • "The laborer is worthy of his wages." (Luke 10:7, 1 Timothy 5:18)


H.R. 3 - Expanding Stem Cell Research (Sponsored by Rep. DeGette)

• Pray that Congress would vigorously fund fruitful adult stem cell research. Pray that Congress would not fund life-taking embryonic stem cell research. Pray that if Congress funds embryonic stem cell research that President Bush would veto it. Pray that if President Bush vetoes funding for embryonic stem cell research, that there would not be enough votes in the House, nor in the Senate to override his veto. • "[Hezekiah] removed the high places and broke down the sacred pillars and cut down the Asherah." (2 Kings 18:4) "For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14)


H.R. 4 - Democrat Drug Price Control (Sponsored by Rep. Dingell)

• Pray that in all the discussions around health care in this country, that the end result would be that individuals would retain their liberty in decision- making about healing. • "Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth." (Jeremiah 33:6)
