Father God you are the God of refuge.
May nothing remove genuine Christlike compassion from the hearts of your true children for the refugee and immigrant.
Preserve our minds and hearts that we do not become desensitised to what your word teaches us about loving one another, especially if we say we love you.
We agree that there is no justification for trampling underfoot and disrespecting human beings and families in the public sphere.
We who are truly yours are against inhumane and torturous behaviour against the vulnerable regardless of what they have done.
Have mercy on us and intervene quickly. Teach our leaders to rule with their hearts not only according to the law, we pray.
May mercy and kindness prevail!
In Jesus’ mighty name!
