How You Can Help
A Prayer for the Homeless
Bless the homeless, this day and every day. Keep them from physical and emotional harm; fill their hearts with hope for the future and for today. Comfort the homeless as they walk their difficult paths. Help me to know that anyone, even myself, can be homeless. Bless the homeless with enough food to sustain them, with enough warmth to shield them from the elements, with the power to wrestle personal demons and win, with the will to go on, and build their lives again. Let the kindness of others bring lasting benefits; the freedom from addiction, illness, and misery. Open their humanity to include and embrace themselves. Bless the homeless with self-acceptance and love; spark their imaginations with belief in the future. Bless our mission to help our neighbors achieve a better, safer and more secure life.
