Prayer for the week

6 Jul 2018

Thought for the Week

I was hungry
and you formed a debating society to discuss it
I was imprisoned
and you just complained about the crime rate
I was naked
and you debated the morality of my appearance
I was sick
and you thanked God for your health
I was homeless
and you preached to me about the shelter of God's love
You seem so holy and close to God
But I'm still hungry, lonely, cold, and in pain
Does it matter?

Sharing in Prayer

God of the homeless, the hungry, and the hopeless, we offer our prayers for those who have no possessions, no home, no food, no freedom, no health, and no hope. May our prayer inspire us to action, and may we learn to see your face in the face of the other. Keep us from becoming desensitised to the injustices of our city, and remind us of the humanity behind the headlines. We pray for the work of our partners The Simon Community, C4WS, Dragon Hall, and London Citizens, as together with them we take action to bring justice and restoration to lives which are damaged. Amen.
