Today from our church family we pray for Vickie Brown.
We pray for the work of the Glebe Centre and Hi’s N Low’s among the homeless and those struggling with alcohol and drug abuse in Walsall. Compassionate Lord, we pray for all those using these services: that the support they receive and opportunities offered for skills and training will help them to maintain their dignity and lead them towards trying to rebuild their lives. We pray that these charitable organisations will continue to receive adequate support from the council, businesses, local churches and individuals in order to maintain and develop this work. We also pray for national organisations that help the homeless, such as the Salvation Army, Shelter and Crisis. Open the eyes of all those with responsibility for social care in national and local government to the needs of the homeless and disadvantaged.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
