An Anti-Human Trafficking Advent Prayer

Lord Jesus, the road to Bethlehem became the flight into Egypt. You were delivered from death so that you could gift us with life.

Today we pray for those fleeing from oppression, poverty, persecution, violence and war.

Sometimes we are filled with fear and even suspicion, but we ask for the grace to remove any barriers in our minds and hearts.

May we realize these victims are
our brothers and sisters.

We ask for Your help so we can welcome
migrants and refugees with the
generosity you have shown us.

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen
