World Day of Migrants and Refugees, 18th January


Dear Lord

Be with the displaced and the migrant.

Be with those who have lost contact with their families.

Be with those who long for a friendly face. Be with those who long for a loving touch.

Be with those who are weary and find it hard to keep going.

Be with those who are cold and long for a warm fire and a cosy chair.

Be with those who sleep on hard ground and long for a comfortable bed.

Be with those who have no home.

Be with those who long to feel safe from wars and hatred.

Be with those who are in hiding from violent people

Be with those who have lost hope.


Be with those today who have to leave their homes to look for a better or safer life.

Grant them a safe journey and welcome wherever they go.


Be with those who have been trafficked.

Grant that they might meet a compassionate person

who will release them and give them back their freedom.


Be with those who are venerable and alone, especially children.

Grant them protection from those who would exploit their vulnerability.


Be with those today

who are separated from loved ones at the time of death .

Grant them a safe home in heaven and eternal life in your presence.


Be with me today and with those I love.

Help us to recognize in all the people we meet,

in the homeless, in the sick, in the needy, and in the stranger.

Help us to extend a caring hand to all your people so that

we can build a better and caring world, where all will be one.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
