Pray for Immigration Reform

By Richard Land
May 29, 2013

UPDATE: Thank you for joining Evangelicals across the country in prayer for our elected officials to pass just and compassionate immigration reform. While the May 30 day of prayer for immigration reform has passed, we encourage you to keep our leaders in prayer as they seek to find a legislative solution to our immigration crisis. Please know we will continue to keep you updated on this critical issue as legislative developments unfold.

Prayer matters. God works through our prayers to change lives, hearts and the world. Right now an immigration bill is moving through the Senate that will affect the lives of millions of people. Our elected officials need our prayers to make sure that we have immigration legislation that is just, compassionate and reflects our values.

Will you join Evangelicals across the country to #Pray4Reform on Thursday, May 30?

Jesus promised that where two or three are gathered in His name, He would be there in the midst of them. It is this reality that makes our prayers so powerful. We know as Christians that when the challenges are this big, prayer is the first place we should turn.

Can you commit to find just one or two other Christians to pray together for immigration reform on May 30?

Imagine small groups of Evangelicals in front of their church, home, town hall or around a flag pole bowing their heads and calling out to God for His justice and compassion for our immigrant neighbors. We believe that the world actually changes when Christians pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Click here to stand up and be counted (with your one or two friends!) as a prayer partner for reform on May 30.

Your prayers make a difference.

In His Service,

Dr. Richard Land
