Freedom 21 - Day 18

Today is Day 17 of a twenty-one day initiative to end human trafficking in the United States and Mexico.  You can download the  Prayer Guide through this link: Prayer Guide.

Today we will focus our prayer and repentance on the issues unique to US-Mexico border towns.

No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. –Isaiah 60:18

A border town is a gateway into and out of a nation where people and goods continually cross back and forth. It is a place where cultures collide and blend to such a degree that it can be difficult to distinguish which country you’re really while you’re there.

Personal Repentance

Father, I repent if I lacked awareness, compassion, and intercession for the struggles faced daily by those living in border towns.

Corporate Repentance

Lord, on behalf of our two nations, we repent for acting wrongly towards the people of our neighboring nation. Forgive us for harboring unforgiveness and resentment towards one another over the past and over the actions of government leaders and forefathers. We repent for all the ways we have not been good neighbors, and for all the ways we have exploited one another. Forgive us for not loving one another according to Your command.
