This month marks the 20th anniversary of the Healing Our Borders Vigil in Douglas, Arizona. The vigil remembers the people who have died in the Cochise County desert – where Douglas is located – while attempting to enter the United States. There are now over 300 crosses representing these lost lives. Mark Adams, one of the co-founders of the vigil, has said that the spiritual discipline of calling the names of those who have died is one way that we remain hopeful while living and working at the US/Mexican border.

  • Pray for all those who have died in the desert.
  • Give thanks for their lives of bravery that they were willing to risk everything to help their families.
  • Pray for comfort for the families who lost a loved one.
  • Ask for safety for those who are still traveling in the desert.
  • Pray that US government officials might change the policies that cause so many people to die.
  • Celebrate the faithfulness of those who continue to remember those who have died.
