Prayer for the Impoverished

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty Father,

All praise and honor be to you for you shelter us from hurricanes and other storms in spite of our poverty of spirit and resources.  

We confess that too often we are tight fisted and only remember our obligations when it benefits us directly or indirectly.  

Yet, we thank you for sending your son to teach us hospitality and generosity of body and mind and spirit.  

In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant us gentle reminders of our need for charity and grace, grant us strength for the day, grace for those we me, and peace that we might grow closer to you day by day.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
