I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray against this bill. Give our food and money to Americans who are struggling, God, not those without citizenship.

As migrants continue to pour over our border, democrats are pushing for millions in food to be given to them.

From The National Pulse. Amidst ongoing food supply chain issues and shortages in the U.S., House Democrats introduced a bill that would designate an extra $50,000,000 for food programs for migrants in addition to a baseline of $150,000,000.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.


The bill, H.R. 8725, was sponsored by Representative Eleanor Norton, a Democrat representing the District of Columbia, on August 16th and has since been referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

If enacted, the proposal would “provide supplemental appropriations for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program to provide humanitarian relief for migrants, and for other purposes,” according to the bill text….

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) has already received $280 million in funding for its operations throughout 2022. The sum was broken down into $130,000,000 for U.S. citizens and $150,000,000 for migrant families and individuals encountered by DHS.

Rep. Norton’s bill appears to apply specifically to migrants who come into contact with DHS as opposed to including American citizens….

We should continue to build the wall and deport those who have come into this country illegally. It is not right that citizens should bear the financial load of individuals who are breaking our laws. Dictator Biden needs to be removed.

It’s absolutely horrific how this Administration a communist Administration is literally tearing our country apart! Those illegal immigrants coming over here have no right to anything not anything not money, not food, not anything they need to go back to their own country! And if they want to come over here and do it legally I have no problem with people coming here the right way but when you’re doing it illegally and they’re raping kids, killing people, bringing fentanyl over here and then killing Americans with it, they deserve absolutely nothing! And then on top of it they’re sex trafficking children and adults and locking them in the back of 18 wheelers so they suffocate and die! I’m tired of my tax money going for illegal immigrants, tired of my tax money going for people that refuse to work, tired of paying for people that don’t have any morals or standards and just sit around at home and collect money from the government continuing to have children to get that money and they don’t even have fathers and they’re not married and their kids grow up without a dad and the mom just sits at home and collects the money. All because they are too lazy to go out and get a job and work hard and earn money the right way!

Heavenly Father, we call upon Your name and ask that You would bring forth righteous leadership and wise counsel. We are $30 trillion dollars in debt. When will this poor stewardship cease? Thousands of dollars/person are being paid to illegal smugglers and drug cartel, so turn over the hands of the wicked and redistribute their wealth to the needy. Establish again the borders of our nation just as You established Israel’s. We desire to come alongside You Lord and to do Your will. Let us seek Your kingdom first. This we pray in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Even though illegal immigration is totally wrong, God loves all people equally so the conclusion is that Christians love all people equally too!! WOW!! We are to be quite different from the world. It really about Him, not politics or money. ❤️❤️❤️ Our God will supply all our needs through His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19.

Think we should care about our fellow human beings, but this is excessive. The illegal immigrants need to find and work jobs to get food as everyone else does in this country. Handouts are bad for our character. Let’s pray these dear people will have good character, know Jesus and earn a living of their own. Jobs could be publicized on a list from the area or maybe by tv. Also we could help by letting the immigrants we know about jobs. And our church!! Befriend the migrants you come across. God loves each one. 😃❤️⛪️🙏

We must stand together as concerned and pro active citizens to be aware, speak up ,and follow what is really happening in our country and leave a profound message that our loss of freedom, our sovereignty,our christian values will not be allowed or usurped with tyranny in any shape or form. In God I Pray.

This is so wrong when people on social security can nearly make ends meet from month to month.

This is not about common sense, it is about the UN/WEF 2030 Goals. I pray this directive would be dissolved! Please God, I know You are there for the needy and downtrodden. I pray against the evil we are facing from so many fronts! Please God, wake up Your people, the church! Cause us to pray, be humble and to bow down to You! Change us God, we want to be like You!

If this bill passes then those who vote yes be labeled criminals, this is just one more reason to defeat Democrats this November. The $$ this Democratic are spending, anyone with money sense knows you don’t spend what you don’t have. Our children as it is are being made poor by our Gov. that knows better, if they don’t vote these people out.

Let’s see, $200 million divided by the 2 million illegal immigrants who have crossed or will cross our border this year equals about $100 per person, or less. Not nearly enough to make a real difference. Believe me, the Dems will be back for more. And more. And more.

Lord, deliver us from this invasion, and the severe draining of our resources. We love immigrants, but let them come legally.

It’s an abuse of power, using the tax payers money to incentivize more border crossings, rather than take care of our own suffering citizens. The democrats can’t spend (waste) money fast enough. Praying this harmful bill fails. Praying for godly men & women to take back Congress in November.
