God bless those, who are displaced from their homes, due to violence and natural disaster.
Place your protection around all refugees and their loved ones, like an impenetrable shield of love.
Guide them to the food, clothing, safety and shelter that they need to survive in the short run, and create a safe haven for them to thrive in the long run.
When fear of the future threatens to overcome them, fill them with a supernatural sense of Your peace that surpasses all understanding.
Be with them as they walk this dangerous road, Lord. Fill their hearts with hope and a certainty of the amazing future You have planned for them, in spite of their current hardships.
As they grieve the loss of their home and way of life, help them to realize they always have a sanctuary in Your heart. Help them experience your sanctuary as a living, breathing reality all around them.
Even while they’re suffering physically from deprivation, help them grow spiritually. Fill them with supernatural graces of patience, strength, persistence, wisdom, that they may be richly blessed with the gifts of Your Spirit during this time.
Heal them from all the suffering they’ve been through, and guard their hearts from the temptation to give up.
Give them an unshakable faith in You, Lord and a realization that You are the rock of security they need to stand strong through this hard time.
Fill their hearts with joy and a sense of having You with them through this.
Bless them with miraculous reminders of Your presence all around them on their journey, Lord.
Work behind the scenes on their behalf. Soften the hearts of leaders to create policies that accommodate these innocent people, who are fleeing from terror. Inspire more communities to see refugees as the gifts they are, and motivate them to welcome displaced people with unprecedented generosity.
In Jesus name, we pray.
