I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask You to give our border agents wisdom, direction, and strength. We ask you to prevent terrorists from coming into our country. Protect us under the shadow of Your wings. Amen.

Unprecedented numbers of known or suspected terrorists have crossed the southern border in recent months, the outgoing Border Patrol chief said.

The head of the Border Patrol, Rodney Scott, told his 19,000 agents before retiring on Aug. 14 that their national security mission is paramount right now despite the Biden administration’s focus on migrant families and children who are coming across the United States-Mexico boundary at record rates…

The surge of migrants from mostly Central American countries has prompted Border Patrol to pull more than 40% of agents from the field to help transport, process, and care for people in custody, meaning fewer agents are able to patrol for national security threats. Often, smugglers send over large groups of families and children to divert agents to one area and then run other contraband or people over the border where agents are not present.

Shortly after taking office in January, CBP told members of Congress that federal law enforcement had stopped four people on the terror watchlist. A CBP news release about these specific encounters was taken down from the government agency’s website hours after going up, prompting complaints from Republicans about the Department of Homeland Security’s transparency…

The four terror watchlist matches represented a greater number than the average total seen in recent years. Although several thousand people are denied entry to the U.S. at airports each year as a result of being on the list, it is unusual for people to be encountered trying to get into the U.S. between land border crossings. The four matches were citizens of Serbia and Yemen…

It’s not just our borders now that are in deep, deep, trouble Our massive aircraft that was picking up “supposed Americans” only, had 150 Americans on it. There were 640 Afghans (and who knows if they’re Afghans?) that managed to get past the Americans, and get on this aircraft! Does anyone in this government see or care about that?? We don’t have a clue who these people really are but the’re coming in to America!! And…yes, we have a tremendous security crisis at our borders. I am very concerned about it. This administration is the cause of all of it!
The people in this administration do not care about Americans or anyone else. They are out of control. They are putting everyone at risk because of their sick, ungodly, Marxist/Socialist agenda!! Never, in my lifetime, have I seen anything like this!!
Father, none of this has surprised you. Please, guide and direct each believer to know how to pray. We need your wisdom and discernment. We ask for Your divine intercession in America, as well as Afghanistan and the Middle East! We know Your perfect will is going to be done, Father, but You told Your people to humble themselves, pray, seek Your face, turn from our wicked ways and then, You would hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land. We do that Father, in the name of Jesus. Thank You that You hear and answer our prayers.

Biden is creating complete havoc for this country in all ways.

Lord there were many evil kings that ruled and often for many years whom you allowed. Father I pray for Your mercy on this land and turn us and the government around to do what is right and lawful for Your glory Lord. Do not allow this nation to be mocked and rediculed as the enemy intends. Show Yourself as the might, great I AM. Amen

Father God, I ask you to grant Your people wisdom and discernment. Bless us by not allowing us to be deceived!! Not to be deceived about our own sin so that we may repent. Don’t allow us to be deceived by others! Show us truth! Your word says that the truth will set us free! Don’t allow us to be deceived by the enemy! Show us who the enemy is so that we may be wise as serpents and gentle as doves! Help us to be discerning of our times so that we may pray and stand firm! Do not allow the enemy to convince any that he is not our enemy so that we are unaware! You promise to grant us wisdom abundantly when we ask You for it! Come and bless Your people with wisdom and discernment and enable us to follow Jesus as You will no matter what circumstances! We cannot be unaware of our enemy in a war! Thy will be done!!
