"Heavenly Father, thank You for welcoming us into Your Kingdom. We are little children but we still believe that all adults love all Your children no matter who they are and no matter what culture they come from. We ask that you please watch over those children who are not with their families. We ask that the leaders in our country look at their lives and know they don't want to be without their children too so they will know what those parents are going through. We pray that the church leaders will pray and ask Trump to help those families and realize that we are children of God. We ask that you hear this prayer from us. In Jesus' name. Amen.”

Please put it in the hearts of our government officials to place these families back together. Lord, we thank you and we love you. Amen.”

"Dear Heavenly Father, I want to thank You for Your love for us. I want to thank You for loving us enough to give us salvation, grace and mercy. Lord, as I sit here and think of my children, I know I could not bare to be without them. I could not bare to not know that they are doing well. I could not bare to know if I would ever see them again. God, I know these are the thoughts and fears of those parents. God, I ask that You allow our government officials to understand the importance of family. I ask that You allow them to understand the pain these families are feeling. I ask that You touch their hearts to return the members of these families back together and allow them to live in peace. This country was founded on being the land of the free. Please remind them of this foundation. Please remind them that our country was founded on immigrants coming here to be free, to live, to worship, to prosper, etc. God, we know You hear our prayers and we know You will get the glory. Lord, we thank You and praise You. In Jesus' name. Amen.”

This morning Lord, members of the Florida Conference pray fervently for the plight of the immigrants, who are being detained at the southern borders of the United States. Our primary concern is for the children who have been separated from their parents while the government tries to figure out how to deal with the situation.
