How long would it take you to spend $2 trillion? (That has 12 zeros after it.)

Beginning on Tuesday, June 12, and ending Friday, June 29, the House of Representatives intends to have passed 11 of the 12 appropriations bills that will spend about that much during fiscal year 2008. All of these bills are considered must-pass legislation.

The Senate has shelved the failed immigration bill. They are not spending significant time on any must-pass legislation. Nonetheless, the important matters for prayer are big items that could move quickly.

The next three weeks are a critical time for prayer.
