Chaplain Prayers: Homelessness and Poverty


Homeless God-Man,

We pray for those who, like you, have no place to lay their heads.

We repent for ignoring your beloved ones,

And writing them off as worthless.

We don’t understand why people who struggle

With mental illness,


And poverty

Must also suffer through the shame and embarrassment

That comes with the lack of basic resources.

We repent of our complacency

And pray that you will work through us,

So that we may show all people

The same radical, creative love you have shown to us.
