Emanuel, God with us, I know you see the plight of the refugees. You see their struggle as they journey from their homes. You see their pain, their fatigue, their desperation. You see them and you love them. Be with them God; be present in their suffering as only you can. Provide safety for them, endurance, and open arms to welcome them to a new home. God, you ask us to welcome the stranger in our land. I pray that you move our government officials to act with compassion instead of fear. You are powerful enough to do this. Give them the wisdom and courage to make the righteous choice.
