Default Prayers for homeless persons

Jesus, you spent the last three years of your life unemployed and homeless, in order to preach and demonstrate the love of God and gospel truths.

"Jesus said to him, "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." Luke 9:58

Jesus, You spent that last three years without income from Your trade.

"Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many other women, all of whom contributed to the support of Jesus and His Apostles. Luke 8:3

You depended upon the shelter of others' homes,
and upon the financial support of friends and supporters
You know that when circumstances prevented You from earning Your living, others came to Your aid.
Your followers didn't leave You exposed to the elements, hot and cold, wind and rain.
They did not leave You to starve.

And Jesus, though You were homeless and without a wage, You were not forgotten ... Large crowds followed You...
Matthew 19:2 Matthew 8:1 Luke 9:11Matthew 14:13
and they honoured You...
The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed ... ... Both the crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed him kept
shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David. Matthew 21:9


However,
Jesus, many homeless and unemployed have no one to help them.
No one to offer shelter.
No one to affirm that their lives have meaning and are precious.

Jesus I entreat You to embrace the hearts of the unemployed and the homeless,
the neglected and the lonely, the desperate and the despairing...
through the practical love and personal kindness of others,
to provide affordable shelter;
and where there is need, to help them to rehabilitate;
to obtain where necessary required medication or counseling;
to supply education, jobs, retraining, or support;

Bring to them those who are respectfully willing to share their food with them;
and with genuine love and wise practicality,
to affirm their unique sacredness.
and to inspire them to have faith in Your merciful love, and their eternal destiny with You.

JESUS who died once for all persons
who gives Yourself wholly in Communion to billions throughout time
please pray in me for every person
as if each person is the only loved one.
JESUS please welcome each person with love, healing, and great joy!
Thank You JESUS


Mother Mary at the wedding feast of Cana (John 2:1-12)
though JESUS protested it was not yet time for miracles
you successfully interceded with Him for a family's temporal need
please now intercede with your divine Son
for each person's temporal and spiritual needs.
Thank you Mother


JESUS please grant our prayer for this person

Dear Trishie,

Cordial greetings and a very good day.

Thankyou, dear friend, for bring this most important issue to our notice, for there is, I feel, a hardening of attitudes today towards this most vulnerable and, alas, despised group of people, even among those who profess the religion of Christ.

Therefore, let is indeed pray for their sad plight, asking that God will move the hearts of men to alleviate their suffering, thus giving them hope and restoring their faith in mankind. Let not Catholics of all people close their bowels of compassion, wrongly believing that all unemployment and homelessness is a result of indolence and being workshy. Many have jolly severe mental disabilties which precludes them from being a part of the workforce and such persons warrant our prayers and, where possible, our love and practical support.


God bless and thankyou.


Warmest good wishes,



Portrait



Pax

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.





Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
