Prayer for December 12: Please pray with me. God of warmth, today we pray for all people who lack warmth in their lives. Help us to be better stewards of the resources you give us. Help us to ensure that all people are not left out in the cold, but rather feel the warmth of love, of being noticed, of being clothed, of being fed, of being cared for, of being listened to, of being treated as human and a Child of God. Warmth isn’t just a physical sensation Lord, help us to move beyond just caring for the bodies of people, to caring for the whole person. Help us also to recognize that we also receive care from those we serve too. Let us be open to receiving the warmth that these people have and desire to give. Amen.
