For the homeless 11-02-2021

Lord Jesus,

You are the Son of Man, the one who understands our human suffering;

You are the Son of God, the one who has borne our suffering by the power of the cross;

Lord Jesus, You said, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (Lk 9:58) – You know what the homeless have gone through, and are going through. Meet them where they are. Shoulder their hurts, pain, troubles, and distress and restore them to wholeness, O Lord. We proclaim that You will revive them and will bring them up from the depths of the earth. May You Lord, increase their greatness and turn to comfort them (Ps 72:20-21). Raise up Your people to share the burden of the homeless. Activate the faith of Your people to minister love and support to them. Let Your people continue to shine their light to the darkness.

In Jesus’s name, amen.
