Pray With Us

Pray for increased support and hospitality towards immigrants
who are rebuilding their lives in our communities.

Pray that those who have fled persecution and are arriving at our border
would find both physical protection and policies
that allow them to apply for asylum.

Pray that in chaotic and dangerous situations around the world
the peace of God would be evident to all who are affected.

Pray for unity and compassion to grow in our country,
even in the midst of political differences.
