For Those Who Are Homeless

Gracious God, let your eye be on those who are homeless; those who feel forgotten and left by the side of the road.  Ease the pain in their bodies and their souls. Surround them with your love so they do not fall into anger or despair.  Give them the assurance that they have a home in your heart even when they are without one in this world.  Place an urgency in the hearts of those who have homes, to give dignity to those who do not. Help us engage and encounter one another without blame or judgment. Help us care for one another with the compassion of heaven, so that no one is left without a space of restfulness and comfort. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.
