Prayers for Peacemakers 3 June 2020 | US/Mexico Borderlands

Please pray for all the migrant mothers who celebrated Mother’s Day on 10 May at the CAME (Centro de Atención al Migrante Exodus) shelter in Agua Prieta, Sonora and for the children who honored them. Pray that they might have courage and patience in this time of waiting. And let us give thanks for the volunteer mothers and donors who are helping the migrants at CAME.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 22 April 2020 Turtle Island

We pray that the family and community of Eisha Hudson will find justice. On 8 April 2020, 16-year old Eisha Hudson was shot and killed by the police in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Eisha was unarmed. There are conflicting reports coming out from the police, media and family about the events that played out on 8 April. But one truth remains. Eisha was a child. CPT condemns the killing of Eisha, and we condemn the violence Indigenous children have experienced at the hands of the Canadian state from its inception to the present.  No peace and reconciliation can occur until the violence of the Canadian government—at all levels—ends, and it brings the perpetrators to justice.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 15 April 2020 U.S./Mexico Borderlands

As the U.S. government uses the excuse of the coronavirus outbreak to make the closure of the U.S./Mexican border even more inflexible, please pray for the people in Agua Prieta, Sonora, waiting to request asylum in the U.S. and for the staff and volunteers at CAME—Centro de Atencion al Migrante “Exodus”—the migrant shelter where the asylum seekers are staying.  In the middle of March, U.S. Customs officials stopped accepting asylum requests.
