Can you hear the prayer of the children

Y’all. 

What’s happening at our borders isn’t okay. 

Y’all realize Jesus was an illegal immigrant too, right? Y’all realize he was fleeing his death? Y’all realize Jesus wasn’t white?

I don’t give a crap what your feelings about illegal immigration are and I’m not open for that debate here. Ripping children from their mother’s arms is wrong. Caging children like animals is wrong. 

Why the heck are we standing for this? Fellow Christians, why are we letting our dogma of love be fueled by a doctrine of hate?

We have to do something. Jesus wouldn’t be standing for this

so why the heck are we?

Adding lyrics from a favorite choral piece, as I feel it’s quite fitting. 

“Can you feel the heart of the children

Aching for home, for something of their very own?

Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to

But hope for a better day, a better day

Crying, “Jesus, help me

To feel the love again in my own land;

But if unknown roads lead away from home

Give me loving arms, away from harm.”

Can you hear the voice of the children

Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world?

Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate

Blood of the innocent on their hands

Crying, “Jesus, help me

To feel the sun again upon my face;

For when darkness clears I know you’re near

Bringing peace again.”
