God who extends beyond boundaries and borders-
We pray for our neighbors who are border patrol agents. May they find safety each day as they fulfill their duties. May clarity allow them to protect our borders from serious and true threats to our country.
Just as we want them to be treated fairly, we pray for their hearts to grow more compassionate each day. We dream that they can find ways to uphold laws and spread merciful love during these difficult times.
Transform their hearts to see all people are made in your image. May grace abound.
This is part of a series of Lenten daily prayers for various careers. The list was determined by St. Paul UCC, Belleville, IL.
So hard to pray. Thank you.
This was a tough one. On one hand, we are called to pray for the well-being of all of our workers. And on the other hand, we are also called to pray that they handle their jobs in just ways.
Very hard to find words to pray for this population. Thanks for lending your words to me…
