We call on the clarity of God
To meet us in our confusion
We call on the mercy of God
To meet us in our brokenness
God in our meeting
God in our parting.
Song “The power of the Cross”
We call on the power of God
To meet us in our helplessness
God in our thinking
God in our speaking
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Psalm 61: 1-4
Please listen, God, and answer my prayer!
2 I feel hopeless, and I cry out to you
from a faraway land. Lead me to the mighty rock
high above me.
3 You are a strong tower,
where I am safe from my enemies.
4 Let me live with you forever and find protection
under your wings, my God.
Move us to comfort Those who are
caught in the midst of war
those held captive
those facing hatred and intolerance
For those fleeing for their lives
For strangers in a strange land
For those thousands in Refugee Camps throughout the world and those on their journey to safety with their children and families.

Song for Refugee Week by Germa Adan
The cross we shall take it
The bread we shall share it
The gospel we shall live it
The love we shall give it
The light we shall cherish it
The darkness God shall perish it.
