Faithful God, I pray for Francisca Lino, mother of six, who is facing deportation. I also pray for Representative Luis V. Gutierrez, who staged a sit-in at the Chicago federal building in an attempt to prevent her removal from the U.S.
Please bless them as they strive to keep the Lino family together. Assist them at every turn; grant them unexpected allies; work in miraculous ways to help the Lino family flourish together.
And grant the rest of us a measure of their courage. Amen.
