June 17-24 marks a global week of action to pray for and understand the plight of migrants and refugees around the world, part of the #sharethejourney campaign.
Have mercy on me, God most high. In my fear and loneliness, be my refuge. Far from my homeland, I feel lost. My heart is stirred by thoughts of the family I left behind. O God, hear their cries and come to their help! Calm the storms of anxiety and doubt raging within me. Go before me and guide my steps among a people I do not know. May their kindness and compassion assure me that You are there to welcome me.
