Times of Trouble by Maggie Nez

ImageGallup, NM

 

The Journey Youth leadership team are writing either prayers or psalms for the homeless. I took this old prayer from Book of Common Prayer “In Times of Calamity” to rewrite.

“O God, merciful and compassionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who put their trust in thee; graciously hearken to us who call upon thee, and grant us thy help in this our need; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

God of mercy. Bless those of us who have no one else to trust. Bless those of us who sleep on the streets and cry to you in hope that you care what happens to us. Listen to us and be with us when we go to sleep and when we wake up. Give us the hope that things can be different when we trust in you. We ask for unusual blessings of peace from harassment and hope in having enough to survive. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
