Prayer for Migrants

Good Lord and Heavenly Father,

You love each one of your children regardless of the lands they come from.  

We thank you for helping us to recognize each other as members of the same human family and as your beloved people.

We thank you because you enlighten us, encourage us, and feed us with your Word.

We pray for those that suffer due to hunger, injustice, climate change, and poverty—so that together we may find solutions to change their lives.  

We pray for our countries, so that we may find viable paths for international collaboration and authentic human development.

We pray for our Church, so that we may learn to be all brothers and sisters. Thus, we ask for a humble heart that is willing to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate those who knock at our doors.

We pray this in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, who is present in our brothers and sisters, who lives and reigns forever and ever.
