Can Prayer Change Things? Praying for Immigration Reform

Christians claim to believe in the power of prayer. We all pray, usually seeking God’s help for personal or family issues. This is as it should be. We are more reluctant to pray for the “big” things, national problems or challenges. Perhaps we pray during a presidential election cycle, but what about seeking God’s face when it comes to the making of laws?
Evangelical Christians committed to comprehensive immigration reform have begun a prayer campaign. This was launched by the Evangelical Immigration Table. If you are interested in committing yourself to pray for a new day for immigration legislation and for the millions of immigrants hoping for legal status for themselves and their families, go to http://pray4reform.org/ and sign up.
There will be a day of prayer in July that will be the culmination of this prayer effort. On July 24th there will be a day-long event in Washington, DC. Click on http://evangelicalimmigrationtable.com/july24/
Prayer matters! If God truly is concerned for the strangers in our midst, then we must be open to praying that the realities of the undocumented among us be transformed for their sake, for the benefit of the country, and for the glory of God.
