For those not at home within themselves- we pray this Advent

those with dementia, whose brains fail them,

the mentally ill, whose minds disturb them,

the depressed and struggling rural workers,

the long-term itinerants of our vast cities,

the workers enslaved by venal systems.

God of the Universe,

Maker and Sustainer,

You are the true global presence of Mercy,

Your Mercy infuses every part of every/ thing.

Every part of every/ thing.

Guide and free us to act

with your righteous kindness

and piercing justice,

to bring all home,

to be at home,

to be makers of home.


Post your prayer in our online Chapel for those not at home in themselves
