He will be homeless as of the end of November. He’ graduated’ from a male-only shelter for recovering alcoholics to a rooming house. He has made mistakes, for sure. Inviting someone in past guest hours, with alcohol and a candle. And not saying No.
The result was a small carpet fire and a court order to leave. He fought the ruling and lost.
I pray God will give this young man strength to really learn from this.
To diligently find any job for now, to pound the pavement to find shelter before the snow flies.
Lord, have mercy and guide this man in Your path. Please direct him towards opportunites to change his life. I pray that he will genuinely want to do so. Lord, in Your infinite mercy, look kindly upon this simple soul and heal him. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Please do not let him be homeless. Amen
NO ONE, but NO ONE deserves to be homeless.
