World Refugee Day

IMAG0069

My heart is kindled today for those who are forced to flee their homes because of violence, or hunger, or hatred.  Will you pray for them?

I pray, too, for the brave voices who speak for the oppressed, the homeless, the hated. I am grateful for the brief time I had with this group of rangers who risk their lives to help refugees.

Lord God, no one is a stranger to you and no one is ever far from your loving care. In your kindness, watch over refugees and victims of war, those separated from their loved ones, young people who are lost, and those who have left home or who have run away from home. Bring them back safely to the place where they long to be and help us always to show your kindness to strangers and to all in need Grant this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
