Prayer for Refugees

For all those who see "home" and all it means disappear behind them as they flee;
For all those who cannot see a home in the days ahead of them;
For all those who dwell in daily insecurity in tents and camps;
For all those who are weary and without hope for the days ahead;
For all members of refugee families we pray.

May the image of the Holy Family fleeing oppression stay with us
as we pray for your displaced children during the day
and stay with us each night as we are blessed with returning to a home.

May we also be blessed with compassion for those still weary, still uprooted, still looking far from home.
Amen.
