WE PRAY FOR MIGRANTS  AND REFUGEES
  
You shall not oppress or afflict a resident alien,
for you were once aliens residing in the land of Egypt.
You shall not wrong any widow or orphan.
If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me,
I will surely listen to their cry.
                                                                                                                                                Exodus 22:20-22
 
 Lord God,
to whom no one is a stranger
and from whose loving care none is ever distant,
look with compassion on refugees and exiles,
on displaced persons and abandoned children.
Render justice to the oppressed
and rouse us to do what is right,
that our society may be cleansed and made new.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.  Amen.
                                                                                                                                                ICEL, 1998, adapt.

ACTION STEPS
Memes to promote on your social media pages can be found at Justice for Immigrants website: Http:///justiceforimmigrants.org .
Additionally, please share broadly the “Faces of Migration” story at this link http://bit.ly/2kG21RI with your networks. Your help is needed to continue to voice our support for immigrants and refugees particularly in the wake of the recent actions taken by the United States government.
