Prayer for November 14

Prayer for November 14: Please pray with me.  God of our homes, we lift up all those who have no place to call home.  There are many who survive in amazing ways – humans are very resilient.  We lift up those who do not have a sheltered place, who live in their vehicles, who live in motels, who crash on friends and relatives couches, who sleep at their workplace, who find a warm place they know nothing about, and more.  You know these stories well.  Jesus said “…but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”  You are a God of the homeless.  You are a God of the transient.  You are a God of the outcast and the outsider.  You are a God of the poor.  You are a God of those without.  Open us to see you in these people.  Open our hearts to embrace them as you embrace us. Eradicate homelessness in our midst.  Amen.
