Prayer for Immigrants: “Dear Jesus, our journey through life is long and hard. We cannot make this trip alone; we must walk together on the journey.You promised to send us a helper, your Spirit. Help us to see your Spirit in those you send to journey with us. In the refugee family, seeking safety from violence, in the migrant worker bringing food to our tables, in the unaccompanied child, traveling in a dangerous world, let us see your spirit. Teach us to welcome not only the strangers in our midst but the gifts they bring as well. We are together on the journey, and for this we give you thanks. Amen.” — Immigration through the Lens of Faith
