Please pray for Justice Anthony Kennedy and his work on the Court. Pray that he would give appropriate value to religious liberty, free speech, and free assembly in his decisions.
The country awaits this week’s ruling regarding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s “individual mandate.” It is common wisdom that the deciding vote, which will determine whether a key component of the 2010 health reform legislation is constitutional, rests with Justice Kennedy.
Justice Kennedy has been a critical swing vote on the Court for several years. Increasingly, he is the decisive vote in any 5-4 split. On any social issue -- from religious liberty to abortion to traditional marriage -- his views often determine which way the law will go. Please pray for him today – and often in the future – that he would give priority in his decisions to the First Amendment’s protections of religious liberty, speech, and assembly.
