GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A number of churches in Michigan have joined in a day of prayer for the tens of thousands of child immigrants who have been flooding across the nation’s southern border.

WOOD-TV (http://bit.ly/1nNx1Mh ) says that one participating congregation in western Michigan on Sunday was City Life Church in Grand Rapids.

The Rev. Adam Lipscomb is co-pastor at the church and says he sees it “both as a humanitarian issue and a need for change in … policy.”

Congregant Terri Hanson says the prayer was unexpected but welcome.

Hanson says “there’s so much confusion around that issue that … turning to God and prayer is the best thing to do.”
