Prayer for World Day of Migrants and Refugees - January 18
For all those who see "home" and all it means
Disappear behind them;
For all those who cannot see a home
In the days ahead of them;
For all those who dwell in
For all those who are weary and
Without a safe place to rest their heads;
For all families in migration we pray.
May the image of the Holy Family
Stay with us as we enter
A New Year, and
Stay with us each night
As we are blessed
With returning to a home.
May we also be blessed
With compassion for those
Still weary, still seeking,
Still with so far to go.
