With immigration reform on deck for Congress, evangelical Christians across the country hosted nearly 400 events across 40 states to pray for immigrants, for Congress and for broad, bipartisan support for the legislation.
Events billed as “Pray4Reform: Gathered Together in Jesus’ Name” were a continuation of the evangelical Pray for Reform campaign, through which more than 187,000 people have signed up as prayer partners.
The Evangelical Immigration Table supports reform that reflects biblical values, including family unity and the God-given dignity of every person according to event sponsors.
The majority of event started last week and concluded Sunday. A few additional events are planned for later in October and into November.
In addition, evangelical Christians will be traveling to Washington, D.C., Oct. 29 to meet with members of Congress and urge movement on reform.
