Prayers for Peacemakers 2 October 2019  U.S./Mexico Borderlands

Please pray for patience on the part of asylum seekers trying to enter the U.S.  They bear great anxieties for themselves and their families as they think about what they fled, and what they will do if they are denied entry.  Please pray for empathy and understanding on the part of customs officers at the border.  Help them to consider carefully the violence and living conditions these asylum seekers have left behind.

Lesvos| Fatal fires at Moria camp

In late afternoon Sunday 29 September 2019, two fires broke out around Moria camp. One reportedly started outside the camp, and was put out within minutes. The other happened in the camp, either inside or close to a container, and rapidly escalated. At the time of this writing, 49-year-old Faride Tajik is confirmed to have died, and the number of injured stands at least at 17.

Prayers for Peacemakers 21 August 2019 U.S./Mexico Borderlands

Please pray for a conversion of hearts among all those who prey upon the migrants seeking asylum along the U.S./Mexico border. At the Agua Prieta MX/Douglas AZ crossing, migrants—primarily from Mexico but also from countries in Central and South America and all the way from Russia—come to their final destination before crossing into the U.S. where they hope they will be safe.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 3 July 2019  Borderlands

Pray for all those detained in concentration camps at the U.S./Mexico Border and in other U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Facilities.  Give thanks for those who are trying to shine a light on the racist and misogynistic Border Patrol culture that is threatening the lives and the health of the children, women and men held in these camps.  Inspire people on the outside to find creative ways to confront and overturn this evil, before it turns into something worse.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 22 May 2019  U.S./Mexico Borderlands

Pray for the No More Deaths volunteers along the U.S./ Mexico Border who have been convicted and are still facing charges because they left water for migrants who crossed through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge.  Pray for humanitarians all over the word who are having their kindness criminalized by their governments as they try to help migrants.
