Week 5: Prayer and Fasting for Immigration Reform

The theme for week 5 is Address the Root Causes of Migration.  Here's a prayer from the Interfaith Immigration Coalition: 

For all those who see “home” and all it means
Disappear behind them;
For all those who cannot see a home
In the days ahead of them;
For all those who dwell in
Daily insecurity;
For all those who are weary and
Without a safe place to rest their heads;
For all families in migration we pray.
May the image of the Family
Fleeing oppression
Stay with us each night
As we are blessed
With returning to a home.
May we also be blessed
With compassion for those
Still weary, still seeking,
Still with so far to go.

(Jane Deren, 2007)
