“As president, I must act to protect the security and interests of the United States and its people. Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet.” This is what our President said. Three nations were added to the list of countries whose citizens will face the restrictions: Chad, North Korea and Venezuela.
According to Bloomberg, “They simply added three additional countries,” said Becca Heller, director of the International Refugee Assistance Project, which is challenging the policy at the Supreme Court. “Of those countries, Chad is majority Muslim, North Korea is literally threatening to nuke us, and the restrictions on Venezuela only affect the officials of the administration of President Maduro, who recently referred to Trump as ‘Hitler.’”
The new restrictions will take place on Oct. 18th. Theser restrictions are wonderful and I believe that they are protecting our country and its christians. What we must do now is make sure no terrorists enter our country. We all must pray that our borders stay closed. Do you agree?
According to a 100ways to pray, Watching the news these days about ISIS and the reality of our porous southern border can cause many of us to fear. We react sometimes in judgment against our government for not securing the borders better, feeling helpless and ready to blame. But we do have a part to play. We can pray.
“God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
We don’t need to be victims, but to get on our knees and be victors as we cry out to God to protect our borders. This is the time for us as Christians to rise up, to pray and to see God move on behalf of His people. Pray that evil will be exposed and halted from their schemes. Pray for God’s presence to fill our land and cover our borders. Let a move of God sweep our nation and overflow in blessing to our surrounding nations. Now is the time!
Is there a portion of the border that God is calling you to “guard” through your prayers? Do you live near a border?
