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.

Having dodged exploitation by mobs, they now face a system that has become increasingly exclusionary and punitive. The changes in the U.S. immigration system have created a booming industry of private detention centers, massive militarization in Douglas and other border cities, which has led to even greater exploitation of migrants.

In gratitude we pray for the many communities of faith and individuals of good will who offer a temporary reprieve from danger, exploitation and exclusion with an outpouring of love and hospitality.
