December- A Prayer for Migrants and Refugees
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of families.
We give thanks for all the joy and the love that they bring into our lives.
We ask that you look after 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 safety and peace.
Comfort those who are alone and afraid.
As we remember the difficult journey that the Holy Family made as refugees,
escaping from Herod to Egypt,
help us to remember the suffering of all migrant families.
We make our prayer through Christ, our Lord.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
