Dear Lord, your people were often migrants.
We are a country of immigrants.
Everyone came or had ancestors who came
from another country.
Even American Indians came from somewhere else.
Our government is deporting people
who have been here many years,
but who have not become citizens.
Our immigration service hasn’t enough
personnel to process them.
Lord, as a baby,
you were an immigrant in Egypt
before returning to your own country.
Help our government find a just
and reasonable solution. Amen.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.
