Prayer for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)

By: Bishop Ruperto C. Santos

Dear Lord, source of hope and our way to salvation
Guide them as they travel.
Lead them on the right path,
And never let them depart from You.

Grant them a safe journey from the home they leave behind
To their respective destinations:
May they find true and honest friends,
May they encounter caring and gracious employers,
May they have decent and rewarding jobs,
May they have a peaceful stay,
May their sacrifices bear good and lasting fruits.

Watch over them and always lead them safely back home:
Keep them away from any harm and danger,
Spare them from sickness and accident,
Protect them from embarrassment and humiliation,
And deliver them from scandal and shame.

Stay by their side and always remind them of their true home:
As pilgrims, we are just passing in this world,
As Your creatures, we must return to You,
As Your servants, we must lead others to Heaven.

Watch over O Lord, those whom they leave behind;
Let their homes be always safe,
Let their children be always secured and responsible,
Let their love remain always faithful,
And let what they earn be spent for good.

Watch over us as we are away from one another.
With your grace and blessing, may we see each other again:
To enjoy once more each other’s company,
To hear and listen to our own life-stories,
And more than ever, to accompany one another
On the road that leads back to You.
Lord, please lead them safely back home. AMEN.
