‘I just want a life for my family’
When we met with Khalid, he took us away from his family to talk in broken English about what they’d been through. He didn’t want his family to see him as he started to break down, recollecting some of the awful things they had experienced. ‘I just want a life for my family,’ he said.
Our partners have provided food and hygiene kits for Khalid and his family. He was delighted with what he received, but his appreciation was for more than just physical things. He appreciated most the sentiment behind what he had been given – that people actually cared.
We will never stop caring for refugees like Khalid and his family. Let us all continue to pour out our prayers on their behalf.
A prayer for Father’s Day
Our Father in Heaven,
Our Father who is with us here on earth,
Our Father whose love for us is wider than the universe,
Our Father who accepts us exactly as we are,
Our Father who will never leave us nor forsake us,
Our Father who sent His only Son to die for us –
Thank you for your love and for the love of all fathers.
We pray for your blessing upon every father on earth.
We ask, Lord, for your comfort and care for those who,
for whatever reason, are not able to celebrate this day.
We lift up fathers like Khalid, who have seen
their families experience great hardship;
we ask that you give them your strength and provision.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
We pray because we're desperate for God - to walk with him... in step with his will for the world.
