Sanctuaries Again

A prayer from a few years ago reflecting on Psalm 84:

Lord, care for the poor and homeless. Open your home to those in need. As no sparrow falls to the ground but that you notice and care, so no neglected child created in your image wanders alone and falls asleep in the cold without your mercy and compassion welling up within you. I know you will make it right in the end. I know you will be their reward, the meek who had nothing here. But in the meantime would you open your house as a refuge for the poor and powerless. Grant us grace to make them sanctuaries again. Be pleased to dwell with us as we dwell with you.
