BorderWalk: Praying for the Watchers on the Wall
September 29 - October 13, 2019
2000 Miles Along the US-Mexico Border | Honoring Our Heroes Who Keep Us Safe
“Day after day I have stood on the watchtower, my Lord.
Night after night I have remained at my post.”
- Isaiah 21:8
A Dividing Line
Our nation’s border with Mexico has become a dividing line. In the midst of all the political crossfire dominating today’s headlines, we’re going behind-the-scenes to simply pray for the brave women and men of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, at every accessible station and port-of-entry along the U.S.-Mexico Border, thanking and honoring them for putting their lives, literally, “on the line” to keep America safe.
Cutting Through the Red-versus-Blue
God is not a Republican, nor is He a Democrat. By aiming above the partisan posturing, we hope to stoke the Church’s passion to bow before the Only One who can heal us. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Hands-On Prayer for Hands-Up Surrender
Blessing the Border Patrol Agents could well be described as Intercession by Proxy: That by praying for those who minister daily in an atmosphere that’s become such a flashpoint of offense, God might call His people, nationwide, to reaffirm our surrender to Him.
It is no small coincidence that the start of this expedition coincides with the start of the ancient celebration of the Ten Days of Awe (Ten Days of Repentance), which begin on Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew New Year) and end on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).
