Prayer for Refugees

By: Education for Justice

Sheltering God,
You were born in flight,
Your parents anxious and given no rest.
The manner of Your birth calls me to
Open-heartedness and sensitivity to the strangers in our midst.
Help me not to flee Your challenge.
The violence of the present time teaches me fear of the stranger,
Reluctant to reach out to those who are different.
Grace me this day as I seek
To see You in the faces of those uprooted,
Weary, as they seek refuge and peace.

Amen.
