Target: Immigration
Deuteronomy 28:1 Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.

Founding Father Quote: “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.  These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.”  -George Washington

Prayer: O Lord, we are guilty of allowing those who despise You to influence and threaten our very way of life.  We started out as a nation aware of the dangers involved in granting citizenship to anyone not honoring You.  Forgive us for foolishly abandoning our watch.  We have been lax in ensuring that those entering our country share our Judeo-Christian values.  This value system has afforded us Your mighty protection, provision and incomparable power…until now.  Lord, give our leaders the wisdom necessary to enforce the good laws already in place, and to reverse the foolish policies that have brought shame to our nation.  Help us eliminate the dangerous philosophies that threaten us as Americans.  We ask that You soften the hearts of those living in this country, by birth or immigration, that we may all enjoy the benefits of living in America.  May we experience what made this nation great in the first place…You!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
