Prayer for Omar

God, we pray for Omar,
denied his appeal for refugee status
with deportation orders to Senegal,
where he will be killed,
if not be others, by his family.

We pray for the Orange County
Gay and Lesbian Center
as they scramble to file an appeal
with the Ninth Circuit Court,
to stay the deportation.

Bless the paperwork,
bless the fragile web
of friends and strangers
surrounding Omar with prayers,
bless ICE to be, this time,
trustworthy,

and bless those,
cruciform,
whose names we do not know.
