Prayer for the Homeless

Posted by Karen M. Wyatt on July 13, 2012 at 11:05 AM

O Creator of shelter and storm,

we gather under

shingled roofs and marbled domes,

sacred canopies and vaulted rafters,

to ask that your

infinite and invisible hand

cover and protect

all those who slumber

under troubled skies,

without the comfort of

familiar walls and well-worn floors

to surround and hold their cares.

May those who have lost

their homes and hearths -

whether through flood or fire,

frailty or foreclosure -

find hope in the stars

that blanket their misfortune,

comfort in our prayers 

that swathe their suffering,

and safety in the connectedness

that weaves their hearts

together with all other life.

Until we all find

our true abode 

in the Universe,

bless those who sleep

without a home

this night.
