“In panic I cried out,
“I am cut off from the LORD!”
But you heard my cry for mercy
and answered my call for help.”
God, we know you never forsake us. You care deeply about the details of our lives and promise never to leave. We know you call us to care for those around us, yet in the busyness of our daily lives, we sometimes overlook those who need it most.
Lord, reveal to us the forgotten in our community. We come face to face with the lonely on a daily basis; in our jobs, in our schools, in our neighbourhoods. Awaken our minds and open our eyes to the broken people around us.
For those who feel they have nowhere left to turn, surround them with your presence and remind them that they are not alone. You know each name, story, hope, dream and struggle. Give us confidence to reach out and make a difference in the lives of others. Make us attuned to the Spirit; may these forgotten people become known to us, and may we reach out in your name and speak your truth into their lives.
Help us realize that we are not forgotten. Surround us as a people. Remember us. Reveal your mercy and love in mysterious ways. Make us channels of your peace to others, and make it known to us as well.
“ If you extend your soul to the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted soul,
then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
and your darkness shall be as the noon day.”
