PRAY for all those who rely on our
nation’s social safety net programs to receive medical care or retirement
Almighty and most merciful God, we call to mind
before you all whom it is easy to forget: those who are
homeless, destitute, sick, isolated, and all who have no one to care for them.

they may have comfort in sorrow, company in loneliness and a place of safety
and warmth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
