A prayer for refugees

Our friends at the Jesuits Refugee Service UK have shared with us this prayer for refugees.

A prayer for refugees

Lord Jesus, give us courage to accompany others, for in walking at their side
we find you there present with us.

Give us joy that we might serve others, for in tending to the wounds of those who suffer,
we sense your healing grace at work in us.

Give us wisdom as we advocate for others, for in defending the downtrodden
we hear your voice speak up for us.

Grant that in all we do, we may give you glory Lord.
We return all we have in love to you, for you have given everything to us.
