I Prayed have prayed
Almighty Father, this diabolical abomination must end. Bring down the violent, and rescue these children from evil hands, we pray.

The crisis at our southern border exists mainly because of confusion between immigration policies and the process of naturalization. Very simply, the U.S. Constitution only grants to the federal government the authority to adopt uniform laws of naturalization. This means that the federal government gets to establish the laws determining how immigrants may become citizens. The Constitution does not, however, grant the federal government any authority to prohibit the states from adopting laws for dealing with immigrants within their own borders, especially those who are present illegally and are in no way seeking to become U.S. citizens.

Have you taken your place on the wall?


The Obama administration went after the ability of states to enact such legislation. The case of Arizona v. United States was wrongly decided, in my opinion, and Justice Scalia’s dissent exposed many of the errors in the majority decision. This case so desperately in need of overturn has fueled the federal government’s overreach regarding immigration and has occasioned chaos in many border states.

The heart-wrenching sight of those masses at our border and the resultant chaos, confusion, and lack of order all suggest hopelessness. To be sure, as Christians, our hurt and concern do not extend solely to the struggles of American citizens, but we also know that God is not the author of confusion. It is the Enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Unfortunately, the border is becoming a breeding ground of death and destruction for migrants and American citizens alike.

Many who are encouraged to make the trek to the U.S. face untold dangers and hardships. Their pain and suffering are tangible. But not only do porous borders harm those who are sold a deceptive bill of goods to come here, they also occasion waves of criminal activity. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, the amount of fentanyl seized in 2022 was enough to kill off the entire population of Houston three times over. Houston’s population is about 2.3 million, so there was enough fentanyl smuggled into Texas to kill roughly 7 million people.

As sufferings and turmoil increase worldwide, the crisis at our southern border increases correspondingly. Some 2.4 million people have poured over our borders so far this year. This makes the placement (in many cases, the displacement) of immigrants in U.S. cities record-breaking.

The small Texas border town of Eagle Pass, with a population of 28,000, has seen as many as 2,500 immigrants enter per day. Mayor Rolando Salinas Jr. has declared a state of emergency because so many migrants are simply being released to roam the streets of Eagle Pass. In frustration, Salinas has said: “They are coming in with no consequence.”

The current situation is untenable. And this becomes more evident when the sorrows of those hoping for a better but seemingly elusive future are juxtaposed with the burdens of local communities, burdens that those communities are simply unable to bear. And it’s not only the local governments that are incapable of providing for these migrants; the federal and state governments are struggling under similarly insufficient resources. These realities have become glaring, given the Biden administration’s policies of bringing in migrants without processing them into shelters, but only releasing them onto the streets homeless.

Tragic as all of this is, though, it pales when compared with the plight of the millions of unaccompanied minors, or the minors being brought in by adults who are not their parents. Arguably, the mishandling of these children through the policies of the Department of Health and Human Services makes our government complicit in the sickeningly profitable industry of child sex trafficking. The HHS failure to protect these vulnerable children has been made public through brave whistleblowers and recent grand jury indictments in Florida. The HHS is now attempting to codify its failed policies into formally adopted rules. These rules are currently open to public comments through Dec. 4, 2023.

These rules are so numerous that the appalling HHS practices and mishandlings get buried and hidden in the sheer mass. But the illogical, inexcusable prohibitions on key questions that enable the vetting of sponsors so that children might not be released into the hands of traffickers must be stopped. Such “rules” must not be adopted, but rather exposed, along with any insidious hidden agendas. Learn more here. You might also want to view this expose.

It is crucial that we pray for a miraculous move of God at our borders. It is equally crucial that we speak out whenever we see injustice. And speaking out is even more urgent when that injustice is being perpetrated against those unable to speak for themselves. We must become the voice of these precious children to see them rescued from the evil hands of their captors. If the HHS has no interest in protecting these kids, then it is we who are their last hope. Undoubtedly, the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ is toward these little ones. And we have been given the opportunity to become His voice on their behalf. Please join me by adding yours.

Share a prayer below for the rescue of endangered migrant children everywhere.

Save our children from these evil, wicked people who are trafficking them.

We must finish building the border wall for many reasons but that of child trafficking is the most important. Drug smuggling and terrorists obtaining unfettered entrance to this country are other reasons.

Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble!”
Notice what GOD’s Word says:
“. . . .for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
That is the punishment prescribed by Almighty GOD Himself! So forget about probation, short term jail sentences, remedial counselling, and do what Almighty GOD said to do! “Hang a millstone around their neck and drown them in the depths of the sea!”

Action is needed. But we must start at the top to correct this problem. Starting at the bottom only allows that problem to be replace by another.

This brings tears to my eyes every time this comes to my eyes or my ears! I can’t imagine the horror these children are going through! However, we pray Proverbs 21:12 “The Righteous One knows what is going on in the homes of the wicked: He will bring disaster on them.” NLT. Lord, we pray that these children will be released and properly cared for and the wicked perpetrators brought to your justice; AMEN!

Lord, may you touch the minds of our leaders with the wisdom they need to put an end to this atrocity against Your creation. Keep and Protect those innocent children who are caught up in this abomination and allow them safe passage to come out of their tribulation whole, sane, and give then a full recovery for their trauma.

Please, give each one of us the strength and wisdom we need to walk in Your path that each of us may fight this evil every day of our lives.

In Jesus name,

All the people in the World cannot come to the United States of America. We do not have the resources to accommodate them. Congress must pass a law that only the first 10,000 people who apply to come to the USA are allowed to apply on Jan 1, of each year., After that all others will have to return to wherever they came from or another country that will accept them. They must meet the requirements set forth by the USA are they will not be allowed to stay.

What a pity to those vulnerable children, who have crossed the border without a parent. They have been prey for sex trafficking.l and child pornography. This policy needs to stop immediately!

So true!! First Obama undermined the USA and now the Biden administration is assigned to finish the job!! God save this country and all the innocent children and adults that are suffering greatly !!BIden’s last name in Hebrew means alas judgment. Father, we repent of the rampant sin in America and pledge to speak out and stand against all evil. By your grace and strength and love let us be a Godly country again, obeying and honoring You in every matter in our lives. May we pray and seek your face and stand together united in your perfect will. May your Victory be ours blessed Lord.

Father, protect the children who are being put in such danger. May our Congressmen and women stand in a desire to protect the innocents and to move to close the border. If they think it is ok to let things go on as it is, change their hearts.

I have just written a fiction novel based on the facts of child trafficking and how 1 person makes a difference. I learned what to look for, to know numbers to report and I pray. My book is TWISTED MILES by IrisEMay.com

Lord, we thank you for your Word that has so many things to say on this matter with child trafficking and the border. Joseph, son of Jacob, was trafficked to Egypt. He spent many years of suffering in Egypt, but God moved through what men meant for evil, in order to make a great leader out of Joseph and a deliverer for his people from the plight of famine. It is not humanly possible for us to imagine that You will work out this favor for those so trafficked across our borders today–there are just so many. But you are a God who is not restricted by human boundaries. In Your own way–to You be praised–work the evil situation with our border, so that there would be a turn-about for good. May many miracles take place: trafficked children set free and spared from the ravages of slavery and forced prostitution, returning to their parents, as well; justice brought upon the evil men who have committed these atrocities and transformations of their hearts unto You; the waking up of the American people of the crisis and from there a reexamination of their lives; a renewed step up of patrol and law enforcement. I am only touching the surface of what You can accomplish in overcoming a great evil. Lord, the Bible also speaks about walls. Walls are a vital part of security and protection. May the wall at the border finally be completed, in spite of intense politics that have seemed to stall this. Lord I lift up all of these things I have mentions and many more related to it that I just could not think to consider, so that in the end Your will would be done, people would delivered and redeemed, and that Your glory would be shown in a powerful way. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

“It is crucial that we pray for a miraculous move of God at our borders. ”

from John 14, Complete Jewish Bible
Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me. Trust me, that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me…. Yes, indeed! I tell you that whoever trusts in me will also do the works I do! Indeed, he will do greater ones, because I am going to the Father. In fact, whatever you ask for in my name, I will do; so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me for something in my name, I will do it. What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened….Get up! Let’s get going!”

The concept of Shalom means “wholeness,””completeness,” “finished,””perfection,” “safety,” or “wellness.” Being in a true state of shalom comes from living in harmony with God.

Father God, Your son said, “I AM the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.” This morning, I’m coming to You in His authority. Only You can enact a plan to save these kids from the tragedy that is being fueled by the lawlessness. I believe You are always at work. I believe nothing is hidden from Your sight. I’m praying in the Name of Jesus Christ, as You see these kids, You will protect and secure their safety and as for those who are preying upon them, You will bring them to justice. Your power and authority cannot be challenged Lord. In that Mighty Name of Jesus, I pray a miracle is unfolding at the border. Miracles are for Your Glory and our good. Please save the children Father. Amen

LORD, I join with my brothers and sisters in crying out to You – the author and finisher of our faith – to intervene in this seemingly impossible situation. Our hearts of compassion for those who seek a better way of life, our anger at those who attempt to use our porous border as a means of spreading their criminal behavior, our concerns about the effects of unrestrained immigration on our economy and safety and . . ., and our outrage at the treatment of the children – sometimes these war with one another as we attempt to pray. Please pray through us, so we align with Your will and purposes for all involved. We reject fear and hopelessness and despair – believing You are able and willing to intervene.

Satans schemes of death for America is no different than his plans of destruction for our individual families . We must be ever vigilant in using our Armor and the blood of Jesus to protect and defeat this persistent foe.
Likewise we must also deter Satanic advancements against our nation. We must “as one” unite shoulder to shoulder to refuse this enemy. These babies which are pawns at this point are precious to our savior and we decree they will become mighty men and women of GOD. These atrocities are soon to be overcome and the world will see that JESUS is LORD!!!
