|Suggested prayers ...|
Allow us to hear and respond to Your desires for those who would be Americans.
As a country who believes you created all men equal, we pray for Your guidance and wisdom in how we treat those who would want to be American. Guide our leaders to honorable and wise immigration policies that secure the safety of America.
As a nation built by immigrants, we pray for Your protection and direction for the newest immigrants to our country.
We pray that our immigrants will be a part of restoring America to You, instead of part of the effort to transform America away from our founders’ intent and vision.
“We need every honest and efficient immigrant fitted to become an American citizen, every immigrant who comes here to stay, who brings here a strong body, a stout heart, a good head, and a resolute purpose, to do his duty well in every way and to bring up his children as law-abiding and God-fearing members of the community.”
President Theodore Roosevelt – December 3, 1901
