Compassionate God 

You walked with Sarah, 
mother of the chosen people, 
as she sought refuge from famine in Egypt. 

You walked with Ruth, 
example of faithful love, 
as she searched for welcome and security. 

You walked with Miriam, 
sister of Moses, prophet and leader, 
as she left behind slavery and oppression. 

You walked with Mary, 
mother of your Son, Jesus, 
as she fled violence and persecution. 

You walk with all women refugees, 
seeking safe shelter, 
as they long for home. 

Walk with us, 
open our hearts and arms, 
to reach out in welcome and love.
