Prayer for homeowners facing foreclosure - March 6, 2013
Eternal One, you have given us an opportunity to live in this world and, hopefully, to thrive and enjoy our families, our communities and our homes. Help us to see that it is through compassionate policies and open hearts that we can best support each other in times of joy and challenge. May those who enable aspiring homeowners to buy their homes do so in a way that will be sustainable and flexible rather than constraining and punitive. May homeowners now in difficult positions in their lives due to unforeseen challenges find a friend in government and banks, rather than a source of anxiety or a signal of failure. May empathy and kindness ever guide us in our approach to each other as fellow community members and as human deserving of respect.
