Thus prays Frederic Brussat in the Spirituality and Practice Blog, “Praying the News”. http://blog.spiritualityandpractice.com/blog/praying-the-news
What do we do with the children who have fled from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico? Perhaps better wording would be to ask what we do for these children. How do we address this incredibly complicated situation as Christians? The United Church of Christ and other denominations are reaching out with aid for the children within our borders.
“She Who Hears the Cries of the World, inspire state and federal agencies to do the right thing to help the children seeking refuge. Give patience, courage, and hope to their parents and relatives. Give strength and perseverance to local American volunteers who are doing what they can to provide assistance and compassion to these children. Show us all how we can best be advocates for these innocents.”
But the problem is much bigger than this. What do we pray for? We can pray for courage, patience, hope, perseverance, and pray we must. But do we have a solution to suggest to God? I stand in awe. The best I can come up with is a miracle. What if everyone prayed for one?
