Praying for Immigrants

Join us in this prayer today. We'll be praying it together at 2 p.m. CDT, seeking justice for immigrant mothers and children being held in Dilley, Texas, and elsewhere. Please share!

God of all peoples,

We pray for our brothers and sisters forced to flee their homelands by violence, corruption, and poverty. May they find safety, security and welcome in our land. 

We pray for children who live in fear of the loss of their parents, and mothers and fathers who fear the pain of separation from their families. Be their hope as we work to repair the brokenness of our unjust immigration system. 

We pray for those who fan the flames of fear and discrimination, for those who cannot see the gift that recent immigrants are to our communities. May they be touched with your divine wisdom and compassion. 

We pray for all those who on this day are unjustly detained, especially those families held in Dilley, Texas. Be their strength and give us the courage to continue to demand an end to the immoral detention of your people.
