Prayer offered at an Interfaith Action for the Homeless

Spirit of Life, God of many names and understandings

Hold us all as we stand together this evening
Knowing we are one people
One family
No matter who we are or what we have
No matter where we are or where we have been
No matter what we have done or not done
We are human
Children of God
Made in the divine image
We all deserve respect
We all deserve compassion
We all deserve a decent place to live
Enough food to eat
And tender care when we are sick

Forgive us for our failings
Forgive us for our fears

Grant us the wisdom to know what we must do
To change what is not right
To bring this community and this country
Back to the promise of a decent life for all

Give us the energy to keep working
Give us the courage to stand strong
Give us the faith to know that change will come

Help us to know that is us,
And no one else that can turn despair into hope
And fear into compassion
We can only do this through the redeeming power of love.

May it be so Amen, blessed be and Namaste.
