A Prayer for Poverty and Homelessness Week
Father, we thank you that Jesus came to break down barriers.
He did not see the migrant or the settled,
the housed or the homeless,
the employed or the unemployed;
He saw and loved the person.
Forgive us when we put up barriers between ourselves and others;
help us show love to all without constraint.
Help us, your church, to build communities without barriers,
where all are valued
because all are made in your image.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
