A prayer for refugees

Loving Father,

Whose Son became a refugee and had no place to call his own,

Keep safe all who are leaving behind conflict or persecution in search of peace.

Thank you that no matter how far from home they are, you are with them to guide them, your right hand will hold them fast.

Help us as churches to be ready with open arms for the people you send our way. Thank you for the perspectives, cultures and experiences they bring.

Give us compassion and generosity to welcome them as you have welcomed us.

And guide those in authority to work for a nation and a world that helps people in trouble and supports people in need.

In Jesus’ name,
