A prayer for homeless people

God in Heaven, we offer our deepest appreciation for the many blessings you shower upon us every day.

We are truly humbled by the bounty of your graces.

We ask for the compassion to follow the inspiring example of the good Samaritan.

Help us to embrace and bring comfort to those who are without shelter, friendship and support.

Help us bring warmth into people's lives this Christmas.

Let us remember that each day that we help someone we are helping you. Amen


Pray for


The Saviour of the world to bring hope and the Prince of Peace to bring healing to the brokenness of the world.
