Prayer for the Homeless
Friday, December 22, 2006
As we commemorate the season of the birth of Jesus Christ, let us be mindful of those less fortunate. And as the new year arrives, let us remember to be grateful each and everyday. Peace.
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.
