Prayer for Migrants

Prayer for Migrants

Jesus you knew what it was like to be persecuted for being different.  Despite this persecution you continue to love and call others to love.  
Jesus on this day of migrant workers and refugees help me to be loving.  Help me to:
•    have the courage to be welcoming and generous to those who are new to my community
•    globally challenge the unjust structures that force people to leave their homes
•    locally challenge the unjust structures that make it difficult for people to create new homes
•    remember that each person is created in your image and deserves love and dignity

Amen
