A Prayer for Migrants
Merciful and loving Father,
you provided for your people Israel in their exodus
a promised land that you established for them,
and in Jesus Christ you provide welcome refuge for all
We ask for your divine protection for all migrants
who have left their homes in search of new
opportunity in another land.
For refugees, who are forced from their homes due to
threats of violence,
we beseech you to provide them a safe haven.
For migrants trafficked into slavery,
grant them rescue, healing, and the strength to
For immigrants, who so often leave their family and
grant them a better life and greater opportunity
We pray in particular for your protection over migrant
children who are vulnerable to exploitation and abuse
at the hands of others.
We implore you to grant all migrants your protection
and lead them to a place of safety.
Be with all those in need with your power to save.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the
one God, forever and ever.
