A PRAYER FOR THOSE FLEEING HOME



Lord, i kneel in prayer.
before thee most high.

that you protect all those running from home.

from war-torn countries.
from domestic violence.
from teenage pregnancy.

now.
stuck along thorny paths.

in deserts dry.
waters wild.
oceans high.

between the devil and.
the deep blue sea.
middle of nowhere.

be thee their compass.
lead them by the hand.
have mercy on them. most high.

hold their feeble hands.
strengthen their failing feet.
fortify their weary knees.

fill their hunger.
quench their thirst.
keep them warm.

make them land safe.
make them find peace.
make us find peace.
