Prayer for Migrants

For all those who see “home” and all it means disappear behind them;
For all those who cannot see a home in the days ahead of them;
For all those who dwell in daily insecurity;
For all those who are weary and without a safe place to rest their heads;
For all families in migration we pray.
May those fleeing oppression find a home.
May we be blessed with compassion for those still weary, still seeking, still with so far to go.
