Jericho Prayer in Washington DC

May 15, 2013

Dear God, you are a God of love and you call us to love and to take care of each other so that we can build a society of love, peace and justice.

In this country founded on principles of liberty and justice, millions of our brothers and sisters live under unfair laws that discriminate against them. Millions of our families are divided and separated. Parents and loved ones are deported.  Every day, millions of people suffer the pain and anguish of not being able to live in dignity.

This is why we come before you today, in this place of our government, to lead them to their humanity, the love of each other, the love of the stranger and compassion for all as we behold the symbols of the wall of injustice that divides us all.

We know that you are a fair God and that you have listened to our prayers.  We know that, in the fullness of time, you will bring down these walls of injustice.  We know that you will help us to soften the hearts of our government, politicians and all people so that, very soon, we can have a new immigration law that protects the dignity of all.

 We pray you will Give us all the Right to Remain in Justice and in Truth. Amen
