Kneel 2 Stand encourages prayer and calling on God as churches and communities commit to STAND/for the vulnerable.
Kneel 2 Stand
In order to be able to STAND/for the vulnerable, we seek first the strength and faithfulness of God to bless those we serve. Current prayer needs includ:
- For two families in refugee communities who have recently lost loved ones in traffic incidents.
- For the increasing number of refugee arrivals expected in this quarter (July - September), that the needs of the arriving families will be met.
- For the outreach of the book, Seeking Refuge: One the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis that more people will understand and respond in love to the refugee crisis.
- For the some 125 churches that are partnering with WRDA to serve immigrants.
- For the immigrant families who are affected by the recent decision of the Supreme Court to uphold the injunction against the expansion of Deferred Action programs.
- For the WRDA staff as they serve and as they lead.
- For love of the stranger to win out over fear and hate as we, across the U.S. and the world struggle for unity and not racial and ethnic divisions.
- For the financial resources for WRDA to continue our mission and to empower churches and immigrants.
- For the some 800 volunteers who will give of their time in service this year.
