Mexico Mayors Declare Jesus as Lord

Northern Mexico continues to struggle with crime, violence, and kidnappings, which is why the mayor of Monterrey, Mexico, is giving the city over to God: “I, Alicia Margarita Arellanes Cervantes, give Monterrey, Nuevo León, to our Lord Jesus Christ, so that his kingdom of peace and blessing may be established. I open the doors of this municipality to God as the ultimate authority. Lord Jesus Christ, welcome to Monterrey, the house that we have built. This is your home, Lord Jesus, Lord of Monterrey.”

Other Mexican mayors are also dedicating their cities to God. According to the New York Times, “It turns out that the mayors of Guadalupe and Juarez, two towns close to Monterrey, and of Ensenada, in Baja California, [have] already done the same.”

Mayor Arellanes’ speech has caused a stir among many in Mexico, with positive and negative responses from citizens, legislators, and the media. Leaders at BridgeBuilders (which has coordinated prayer for Mexico) see this as a powerful answer to the intercession of thousands in Mexico and the U.S., who have united in prayer to invite God’s transforming presence to the nations and the border.
