Weekly Prayer - Desperate Times

Lord, today I ask for your blessing on those who are living
in desperate times with little hope for the future.
Help us to be your ears to listen to their cries.
Help us to be your hands to clothe, feed and shelter them.
Help us to heal those broken in body and spirit,
and to turn their sorrow into joy and hope.
We ask you this through Christ our Lord.

Amen

— By a Columban Missionary
