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,
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.
