I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect the border in 2023 and beyond. Keep dangerous criminals from entering our country, and prevent our border from being overloaded. Give us legislation to solve this, Lord.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our border is already in crisis. This will only get worse in 2023 if nothing is done to fix it.

From The Federalist. As the year winds down, the border is about to break wide open. In less than a week, the Biden administration’s last remaining tool to control illegal immigration, left over from the Trump administration, will be taken away.

Who is praying on the wall?


Title 42, the public-health order invoked by President Trump during the pandemic that allowed immigration officials to quickly expel most migrants caught crossing the border illegally, will end on Dec. 21 by order of a federal judge.

Once Title 42 is gone, federal agencies at the border will have no choice but to process and release nearly every illegal border-crosser. It will represent a full return to the Obama-era “catch-and-release” policy. Border Patrol estimates they could see as many as 14,000 arrests per day in the coming weeks, which would totally overwhelm the border. …

Biden, who repealed or severely curtailed nearly every one of Trump’s border policies upon taking office in January 2021, has no plan for what to do now. Axios reported this week on a vague plan circulating among Biden officials for a temporary (five-month) moratorium on asylum, but the plan hasn’t been approved. It’s unclear how it would even be implemented with less than a week to go before Title 42 ends.

But even if the feds do impose a temporary halt to asylum, it’s too late. Thousands of migrants are crossing into the El Paso sector every day now, many of them having been bussed into Ciudad Juárez by the Mexican government. They are coming from large caravans that, having heard of the impending end of Title 42, formed for precisely this purpose. …

Back in August, my colleague Emily Jashinsky and I reported on the migrant encampments and shelters in the Mexican border towns of Matamoros and Reynosa across the Rio Grande from Brownsville and McAllen, Texas, respectively. Most of those migrants were Haitian, although they had been living in various South American countries for years, with legal status. …

[They] were waiting, they told us, for U.S. policy to change.

Their wait is almost over. Once the threat of expulsion under Title 42 is gone, there will be little to hold them back. …

Heavenly Father, please protect innocent American lives from those who want to do them harm by illegal immigration at the border. Do not allow drugs, diseases, and other threats from entering our land.
Give wisdom to our country’s leaders so they can see the harm and deaths that is occurring because of the border crisis. Prompt leaders to put an abrupt halt to this danger and expel them from our land.
Also pray for the Mexico, China, and Russia leaders to convict them and cause them to turn from their evil ways and promote world-wide peace.

We need to start recalls and legal action on the president and congress for not protecting Americans as outlined in the Constitution! We must rise up and let these sorry people know that they will either do their job or be put out of office. Sheriffs have authority in their counties to evict illegals. Call on your Sheriff to read the constitution and then abide by it to eject illegals! If elected or appointed judges refuse to follow law, then we take legal action to have them removed from the bench! First CHRIST said that all power in Heaven and earth was given to HIM and he gave us power to tread upon scorpions, serpents and ALL the power of the enemy! Then our Constitution gives us power to oust elected officials that do not follow the constitution or the laws of the land! Basically that are NOT doing the job they were put in office to do! If attorneys are on IFA please let’s organize to TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY LEGALLY! In JESUS NAME! Amen!

Father, we look around and can clearly see that we have stepped into the beginning of another great awakening. It is time! We hear You calling us back to You, and will readily respond to Holy Spirit’s drawing.
We declare that we, Your Ekklesia army, will legislate and enforce Your verdicts. We’ll carry out Your assignments! Your true Church is rising and returning to a passionate pursuit of You. We are focused on You. We cry out to know you more. We will listen to and follow Holy Spirit, allowing Him to equip us with understanding. “ By faith, we take hold of the Sword of Truth, Your Holy Word, and set our faces like flint. Our ears are attentive to Your voice. “ Forward is our command, and forward we will go! We hear the call, and will respond with courageous faith to go beyond what we have known. We will ride with Your strength and power as You send us forth with an already assured victory. We yield ourselves completely to You“. I have said several times over the last few months that for America, things will get worse before they get better. More evil and foolish decisions will be made, causing increased devastation, suffering, and judgment. Isaiah 5:20-21 tells us, BUT all Hope is not gone. God always has a plan. Deuteronomy: 18: 17, 22 Many may not be aware but God uses Prophets to get messages to us as believers to give us warnings and messages to what he is doing v17 “ The Lord said to me: “What they say is good. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites (us today), and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. 19 I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name. 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.”
21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. God is letting us know that this border is terrifying to many, but I am going to take care of what this Democratic Administration has done Against His people (us) . God assured us that he will not forsake us. We are going to have days that seem darkness will never lift. But God has given us His words to feast on daily, prayer calling out these spirits to deflate. Through His Authority that he gave us we can defeat this demonized spirits that is trying to destroy. “ Through Christ’s shed blood, America can be delivered from the curse caused by our alignment with Baal. We shall not be defeated, we shall win back what has been stolen from us. The word must get out to others that God is our source to win this battle we are in. As we celebrate Jesus Birthday remember what he has done for us, and what we must put aside to help God win America back. Jesus said Go ye into the world reach out to people. Father God as I reflect on the moment we are in I hurt like many others, but I am trying to keep you and your prophets in my prayers as well as our ministers to wake up see, listen to words coming from a true prophet that gives your words direction for us; so we know how to pray and fight all the enemies that are running rampant to steal, kill, destroy. We decree that evil Carrie’s no power or authority over (us) Gods children. As we pray wait for our Savior to open a way for us to follow as He leads. God is exposing many things. Be in prayer to be blessed. 🧎‍♀️🧎‍♀️😘

We need an action point on this directed to the Senate in particular, and the House as well. ASAP.
In the meantime, call your Senators and your Representatives. Apparently, from a news item on Steve Bannon’s WarRoom, there are tens of thousand of people in holding areas in Mexico. They’ll be released if Title 42 is gone.
