Prayer for unaccompanied minors caught up in Moroccan-Spanish migration crisis PC: Bernat Armangue/AP

Heavenly Father, we pray for the current migration crisis unfolding between Morocco and Spain. We are particularly concerned for the unaccompanied minors whose parents are trying to find them. Knowing that authorities have already confirmed the presence of 439 unaccompanied minors in Spain and that 4400 calls have been made by anxious relatives since Thursday, we believe there are hundreds more. Lord, you see them. You know their situations. Please direct them in the way they should go. Send godly and true protectors to guard, guide and comfort them. For those who need to return home, please connect them with the proper assistance and get them home as quickly as possible. Lord, we pray for anxious parents and loved ones, wondering what has happened to these children and youths. Please give them clarity and tenacity in finding those for whom they search. Grant them peace. We pray for Spanish and Moroccan authorities to resolve their differences as quickly and effectively as possible, and to take a good look at immigration practices—both official and unofficial—on both sides of the border. May they enact helpful changes. We pray for your children to bring help and hope to those caught in this stressful, complex situation. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
