“Prayer for Migrant Families”

family detentionPray to End Family Detention

Good and gracious God, we thank you for the gift of families. We are grateful for all of the joy and love that they bring into our lives, and we ask that you provide special protection for all families, particularly those who face hardships as they move in search of a better life. Show mercy to those who travel in danger, and lead them to a place of safety and peace. Comfort those who are alone and afraid because their families have been torn apart by violence and injustice. Open our hearts so that we may provide hospitality for all who come in search of refuge. Give us courage to welcome the stranger as Christ in our midst. Amen
