September 20 marks six months since Pastor Max Villatoro has been deported. Friends of Pastor Max invites congregations to a week of prayer from September 20-27--two Sundays and the week between. Below you will find a prayer vigil resource in both English and Spanish. These were designed for corporate worship but could be adapted to any setting for groups or individuals.
Please pray specifically for Max's return. The Department of Homeland Security and ICE have the authority to bring Max back, but only God can work in the hearts and minds of the officials who can make that happen. Let's ask God to make a way for Max to return to his family. When Max returns, we will give God the glory!
We also suggest calls to the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson (202-282-8203) letting him know we are praying for Max's return. It is important that we let Secretary Johnson know we are have not forgotten Max.
