those who prey upon the vulnerable, and end the desperate circumstances that
create this crime.
Day 21: Thursday, February 9

Today I pray for Your peace. Slow me down. Calm my insecurities. Let me
abide in You so that I may leave behind any trace of desperation, and be an
assurance for others who work for justice.

God of justice, show me how to stand with my brothers and sisters who migrate
