Heavenly Father, I hear about the needs of poor people who live in hunger and struggle daily to survive. But when I encounter someone who is homeless, I become skeptical and selfish with my gifts. Help me to open my heart to them and to remember that they are Your children, too. Guide me to help those who can benefit from my generosity. Amen.
Lord, let us be one another’s keeper, and protector, as you watch over us bless us with the knowledge that you alone are enough, and that all of the material things of this world will pass into nothing. Remember those who doubt, and bless them with the understanding that you are and ever will be without doubt. Bless your one apostolic xhurch on earth, forgive us our sins, and lead us into your everlasting light on our final day. Amen.
