Prayer for the month
A prayer for refugees
God of compassion whose own son experienced life as a refugee we remember those fleeing from danger, hungry and afraid, with nowhere to call home.
God, we ask for them warmth, security, food and peace.
God of hope, we thank you for those who are working to bring relief and comfort to those displaced, showing glimpses of grace in the darkness of despair.
God, give them strength.
God of justice, guide the nations and the leaders of the world towards peace, stir hearts to be generous and compassionate.
God, help us to play our part in bringing about the change that we want to see.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
(Diocese of Exeter)
