Prayer for the month
God of all, where are your children?
Let us see God’s children, who are far from home, adrift in an open, overcrowded boat, with no compass, no crew, no safety.
God of all, why is there crying?
Let us hear the cries of refugees and respond with love to those whose escape from danger leads only to a journey into danger.
God of all, who is praying?
Let us pray for the young lives being lost, for the families who are broken apart, asking for comfort and for justice.
God of all, who is answering?
Let us see that You are in the boat, alongside the members of your family. May we, who bear your name, answer with compassion for you.
