Prayer for The Homeless

This past Sunday LiberalChurch had a guest speaker from the Simpson Shelter (for the homeless). As the temperatures dipped down to zero here in the frozen tundra last night, let us each remember all the homeless people around us (most of whom are invisible to us) who are suffering.

Prayer for the Homeless
O God, as Naomi and Ruth journeyed from one land to another seeking a home, we ask your blessing upon all who are homeless in this world. You promised to your chosen people a land flowing with milk and honey; so inspire us to desire the accomplishment of your will that we may work for the settlement of those who are homeless in a place of peace, protection, and nurture, flowing with opportunity, blessing, and hope. Amen.
