“Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us – except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a

global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.” – Khaled Hosseini

In the quiet of the morning light, refugees yearn for freedom’s flight.

Families torn, but hearts so strong, in search of peace, where they belong.

Steps of hope on paths unknown, together, they are not alone.

Through trials deep and nights so cold, in love and strength, their stories told.

Leaving behind a world of strife, dreaming of a better life.

The weight of fear, they cast aside, in freedom’s name, they now reside.

Voices soft, but hearts so bold, a tale of courage, gently told.

With every step, with every mile, they find their hope, they find their smile.

Eyes that see beyond the pain, hands that build a life again.

In every moment, in every sigh, they find their freedom, reaching high.

In the quiet of the morning light, refugees embrace a future bright.

With hearts as one, they greet the day, together strong, they find their way.


“Dear Lord, we lift up to You all refugees and their families.  Grant them strength and courage as they seek new beginnings. 

Shelter them with Your love and peace in times of uncertainty and guide them to places of safety and hope, where they can rebuild their lives and find freedom. 

Bless their journey with compassion and support from others and may they always feel Your presence beside them.  Amen.”
