A mother’s prayer for refugees

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, May 2, 2016.

“I just want to know what to do.” These were the words of a Syrian woman who had just come to Greece only to find that the border had been closed. My heart welled up within me. I too had uttered those very words on a number of occasions, and as I began to pray about the refugee crisis, I was reminded of a time in my own life when I had earnestly prayed and God had answered my plea for guidance.

I had come to know God as a tender Shepherd who guides, guards, and provides for us.
