"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble."
—Psalm 9:9 (NIV)
- Ask the Lord to turn the hearts of America's citizens and leaders to Himself as we wrestle with immigration policies.
- Pray that our nation will increasingly see that God is our only refuge amid the troubles of this world.
Father, I am so grateful that You are my refuge and stronghold. I come to You today longing to experience Your presence and to rest in who You are. What I ask for myself, I also ask for my nation. Please provide our leaders a solution for the immigration decisions that must be made. Let them have your wisdom and your compassion.
