Friday Week 10, Term 2

Vinnies Winter Appeal



 

As the nights grow colder we begin our Winter Appeal for Vinnies, let us ponder on the words of the prayer and make a commitment to do something positive this week for people in need. 


Hear our prayer today for all who are homeless this day. 

For those sleeping under bridges, on park benches, in doorways or bus stations. 

For those who can only find shelter for the night but must wander in the daytime. 

For families broken because they could not afford to pay the rent. 

For those who have no relatives or friends who can take them in. 

For those who have no place to keep possessions that remind them who they are. 

For those who are afraid and hopeless.

For those who have been let down by our social safety net. 

For all these people, we pray that you will provide shelter, security and hope. 

We pray that those of us with warm houses not be lulled into complacency and forgetfulness. 

Jesus, help us to see your face in the eyes of every homeless person we meet so that we may be empowered through word and deed, and through all the means we have, to bring justice and peace to those who are homeless. 

Amen.
