A Prayer for DREAMers
Creator God and Mother Mary,
You have blessed us with DREAMers
Who arrived here as children and today seek a way
To make their contribution to our common life.
We pray for them now.
We pray that they will be allowed to work, study and live in safety.
We pray that those in authority may turn away from prejudice, fear and scarcity,
That they will set their hearts on acts of mercy and justice.
Guide our nation’s care for our DREAMers,
as you, Mary, cared for your son Jesus.
Care for our community who benefits from the contributions
And presence of these young people – their passion, talents and presence.
We pray that you will give us vision and inspire our concrete actions
As we seek to realize our goal of liberty and justice for all.
