Jeremiah 7:5-7 – “If you do not oppress the alien…then I will dwell with you in this place…”
Merciful God, Look with compassion upon me. Grant me the grace to see the refugees as you see them. Lord, I want you to dwell in my heart and in my life, so change my heart, if the thoughts of my heart are not aligned with yours. I acknowledge that I am not all that you want me to be and I don’t see people as you do, but I am open to your pruning. Do not leave me to my own worldly thoughts and fears. Help me, Lord, to be more like you and seek Jesus in the face of the stranger and the refugee.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” ( Psalm 139:23-24)
