What gain has the worker for her toil? Almighty God in your providence many millions of men, women and children live in our nation as “undocumented."
Let them live in the wonder of your grace, in the shelter of your love. And as they continue to work among us, often in the lowest paying jobs in our nation, let our work be, alongside them, to bring justice to our broken immigration system, to hold public officials accountable for bad policy, to stay this course until a just and fair path to citizenship lay before them. We will rejoice to watch them walk that path with dignity.
God of us all: In the midst of our demeaning politics, we pray that your good will be done, that your justice and mercy prevail. One human family, one God, now and forever. AMEN.
