“First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Justice Clarence Thomas, a powerful voice for the sanctity of life, religious freedom, and other conservative principles, will not be participating in today’s oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Thomas was hospitalized Friday evening with flu-like symptoms, though he has tested negative for COVID-19. He is being treated for an infection and seems to be improving.
Today is also a big day because the Senate will begin hearings on President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Brown is a radical Supreme Court pick for Biden, with Heritage Foundation President Dr. Kevin Roberts explaining:
“Her limited judicial record reveals that Jackson has consistently ignored the Constitution, twisting the law to favor certain outcomes. Judges should play a limited role in our government, yet Jackson’s far-left supporters want her to impose a political agenda that invents new rights or erases rights she doesn’t like.”
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, we lift up our Supreme Court to You. May You guide the justices and law clerks forming important legal decisions. We ask that You place a healing hand on Justice Thomas, so that his voice for the unborn and religious freedom can return to the Court. We ask that the Senate confirmation process would reveal the radical approach of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, so that Americans are aware. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
