Make of our Hands your Hands

Fr. John and Danny gather us to pray last Friday, the night of St. Paul's first "Sandwich Builders." Danny prays ...
Dear God,
There is no place like home. For home is where the heart is.

We feel the truth of these words as we gather now together to serve the homeless.

We give thanks for food, drink, warmth and shelter.

We ask you to remember those who do not enjoy these simple necessities.

Hear our prayers for all men, women and children who are homeless.

For those sleeping under bridges, on park benches, or in doorways. We pray for them.

For those who have no relatives or friends who can take them in. We pray for them.

Blest are they, the lowly ones, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blest are they, who hunger and thirst, for they shall have their fill.

Lord, bless the volunteers who gather at our parish to serve the homeless.

We gather to do your work.

Make of our hands, your hands.

In your name we pray, Amen.
