Lord, give me strength to keep moving.
Give me enough food for that strength.
Evil has cast me out from my homeland.
My old home is behind me and destroyed.
I have to search for a new home.
Lord, take from my mind the destruction of my past
and fill it with hope for the future,
a place where I can work to earn my bread,
friends who will welcome me and help me,
a new home where I can build a new life.
Prayer: Kathy McVay/CAFOD
