A Prayer for the Poor and Neglected

Almighty and most merciful God,
we remember before you all poor and neglected persons
whom it would be easy for us to forget:
the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick,
and all who have none to care for them.

Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit,
and to turn their sorrow into joy.
Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son,
who for our sake became poor,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
