I Prayed have prayed
Father, be near to these children in border patrol custody. Make Yourself clearly known to them. Gove our governmental leaders Your supernatural wisdom.

The number of migrant children detained in Border Patrol facilities has tripled over the past two weeks, amid an ongoing surge of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

Over 3,250 migrant children are currently in Border Patrol custody, according to internal documents obtained by multiple outlets. That figure is triple the amount from two weeks ago and almost double the 1,700 children held in Border Patrol facilities as of last week.

Of those detained, over 1,360 children have been held longer than the maximum 72 hours before being transferred from Border Patrol to shelters run by the Department of Health and Human Services. However, while around 2,600 children are currently waiting for transfer, just 500 beds suitable for children are available in HHS shelters, according to the documents.

The Border Patrol transferred over 7,000 migrant children into HHS shelters last month, the highest ever recorded during the month of February. . . .

The current surge in migrants is due in part to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, two hurricanes that devastated Central America in November, and a perception that the Biden administration will have looser immigration policies. . . .

Additionally, immigration officials have restarted “catch-and-release” policies allowing migrants to be released into U.S. towns on the border if holding facilities are full.

So unfortunate for these children, I pray that God will look after the kids and that there will be a soon solution to the border crisis. My understanding is that DHS is seeking volunteers to help at the border.

FATHER GOD I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SOVEREIGN AUTHORITY OVER YHIS WORLD! Psalm 89 ells us the HEAVENS AND EARTH OUR YOURS AND YOU CREATED THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH! In my heart I understand the plan YOU DESIGNED! IT it easier to Share YOUR Word with those of the Same language! If this ONE nation, the USA Continues allowing ILLEGAL INVASIONS, WHO AND HOW WITH THE MILLIONS LOST IN HISPANIC NATIONS KNOW AND HEAR OF YOUR LOVE? ROMANS 10:12 DECLARES JESUS IS LORD OVER ALL MEN! However, 13-18 Explains the PRIORITY OF Evangelism to the Nations!
FATHER GOD, Bring Conviction on the Body of CHRIST IN the Countries represented at our BORDERS to place MORE FAITH AND TRUST IN YOU to Strengthen an Prosper their Homelands! May their eyes and hearts be ENLIGHTENED with YOUR WORD! BLESS THEM to return home and to Seek First YOUR KINGDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND NEVER PLACE such faith in Falliable humans to be their Savior and Refuge! Please LORD send an Angel Army to watch over them as they prepare to return and for those seeking ASYLUM, MAY IT BE DONE LEGALLY! FATHER GOD I ASK FOR DIVINE PROTECTION AND DIRECTION FOR ALL CITIZENS IN OUR COUNTRY WHO COULD POSSIBLY ENCOUNTER SERIOUS DANGER AS A RESULT OF SUCH BLATANTLY CORRUPT AGENDAS COMING FROM GODLESS LEADERSHIP! FORGIVE THEM AND BRING RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT TO THOSE THAT MOCK AND SIN AGAINST YOU!
THANK YOU LORD GOD FOR HEARING THE PRAYERS OF YOUR CHILDREN TODAY! IN THE NAME OF JESHUA MESSIAH, AMEN!!!

Give wisdom to our leaders Lord to implement a plan that will serve the people crossing over in Your love but also if it be your will please let there be change is the president’s immigration policies that deceive and give false hopes. In Jesus name, Amen!

Lord, I pray for these young people that they will come into the hands of godly and willing servants of the Most High, that they may come to know You O God and find righteous work for their lives. Prepare hearts and hands to receive, care for, and teach these children to be good citizens and not a drain on society. Let them grow in wisdom and love for You Lord. In the name of Jesus.

Father, Open the eyes and hearts of government officials to see the importance of immigration that has boundaries that we would be able to protect them from being prey for evil. The many children and teens that are flooding in will be vulnerable in the hands of those who desire evil for them. Father, open the eyes of our President and those who set up the rules to see the harm they are inflicting upon the innocent and the communities they are flooding into. We Your hand of wisdom to move forward with love for all concerned. Protect the many young people coming and keep them from the hands of the evil one. Lord, we do not know what to do but our eyes are upon You LORD.
