Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

prayer for the homeless

This image cuts through me. Homeless people suffer in ways that are both unique and common. Cancer attacks everyone. These however so often lack the support of family and medical professionals.

I live in an urban area and regularly encounter people who are homeless. Always hard to know how to really help these who suffer so much. In light of those who are in such pain this time of the year, please join me in praying this prayer from the Church of England.

God of compassion,
your love for humanity was revealed in Jesus,
whose earthly life began in the poverty of a stable
and ended in the pain and isolation of the cross:
we hold before you those who are homeless and cold
especially in the bitter weather to come.
Draw near and comfort them in spirit
and bless those who work to provide them
with shelter, food and friendship.
We ask this in Jesus' name.
