I Prayed have prayed
Lord, protect our border and guide our nation's leaders in Your supernatural wisdom.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is asked agency staffers to help along the U.S.-Mexico border amid a surge of migrants trying to enter the country.

Mayorkas sent an email to staff that was obtained by Fox News and stated the agency is activating its Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection. . . .

Volunteers will not be used in a law-enforcement capacity. They will instead function in such support duties as making supply runs and preparing meals.

What remains unclear are such issues as who’s eligible to volunteer, what expense will taxpayers incur for travel and other related spending and will the volunteer work result in unfinished government work.  . . .

In the last two weeks alone, the amount of migrant children being detained at the border has tripled.

The volunteer force was last used in 2019 under President Trump. Mayorkas said that in 2019, nearly 900 people volunteered at the border.

Many of these illegal immigrants have tested positive for COVID-19, and many of the children and teens are being TRAFFICKED by gangs and drug cartels!! O LORD our GOD, please protect our borders from those who would bring destruction, and please rescue and rescue the trafficking victims and heal them! Thank you for Your ministries that do that. Walls to protect nations are wise and Biblical. Please raise up workers to accomplish this. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

Dear Heavenly Father, please protect the southern border and protect our citizens from dangerous criminals who may be roaming around. I pray also guide our nation’s leaders in Your supernatural wisdom, knowledge, and discernment. In Jesus name, Amen.
