This Presbytery of Winnipeg recently welcomed a family of six from Ethiopia—a refugee family the presbytery is sponsoring. Reflecting on this moment of newness, of arrival, of hospitality, of awkwardness and of thanksgiving, the moderator, the Rev. Peter Bush, calls us to prayer for refugees and exiles. http://tinyurl.com/yabubb33

God of the stranger and the wanderer, of the exile and the outcast,

Look upon the exiled and the refugees around our world, they are without home, without roots, without stability. Give them new places to call home and to put down roots, fulfill their hopes for stability and a sense of belonging. Let them know that in you they can always find a home.

Be with those exiles and refugees who find themselves welcomed into a new country, a new city, a new place, may they find safety and the space to be who they were created to be. Send them companions to aid their adjustments to a new place, a new culture, and a new language.

Move the hearts and wills of people and governments around the world that they would open doors for the displaced, the dispossessed, and the outcast to find stability and belonging. We pray that governments, including the Canadian government, will increase the number of refugees they will welcome, and that citizens of the nations of the world, including Canadians, would exercise good hospitality and welcome.

We thank you for individuals and community groups, churches and families, that work to sponsor refugee families. Give these groups and individuals wise and humble hearts, so that they might offer care without paternalism and advice without taking over, all with cultural sensitivity and openness to the needs of those newly arrived.

Finally, God of peace and justice, we pray that the political turmoil, the oppression of the other, and the violence and war, all of which cause refugees to flee and exiles to be threatened, would be replaced by the reign of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. We yearn for the day when the world will beat swords into plowshares, turn tanks into tractors, and human beings will learn war and violence no more.

These things we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, who knows what it is to have no place to lay one’s head. Amen.

—The Rev. Peter Bush, moderator
