A Prayer for Refugees

Almighty and merciful God,
whose Son became a refugee
and had nowhere, no home to call his own;
please look with mercy on those who
are fleeing war, tyranny, starvation,
enduring dangerous journeys,
are homeless, cold and hungry.

May your blessings flow to all those who work to bring relief to refugees;
may your endless love inspire compassion;
grant wisdom to the leaders of the nations.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
