A prayer for Refugee Week
June 15, 2022
Bring warmth to the hearts of the homes to which they flee,
May they find safety and comfort,
In open arms.
God of liberation,
Bring freedom for all people locked up by cruel policies,
From the bars which bear down on their souls,
Freedom to walk the land, to live a life.
Freedom of spirit.
God of justice,
Open our eyes and give us the courage to call for change,
For a country that rejects cruelty and violence,
That puts down its fear,
And chooses welcome.
