PLEASE PRAY FOR THE HOMELESS

Some time ago, I posted this. Today, I feel the same way as I did when I first posted it.

Heidi Viars

 I pushed against the heavy, ice-covered, glass front door
To take a peek into a frozen world.
I was reminded of the many
Who don’t look from a warm inside out,
But have to look from a cold outside in.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE HOMELESS!

looking from the inside out 002

Here are some practical things you can do …

  • keep a gift card for a fast food restaurant in your wallet –
    it provides a warm place to get out of the cold
    (Five-dollar gift cards for McDonald’s are great!!!)
  • keep a public transportation ticket in your wallet –
    many homeless ride the trains in this cold weather
  • support the homeless shelters in your city.
    Donations of baked goods, long underwear, warm coats, sleeping bags, and blankets are very much appreciated.
  • PRAY FOR THE HOMELESS

“God, open the door of our cold hearts.
Show us how to provide warmth
For those who are freezing.”

  1. Yesterday, I encountered a young homeless couple with 3 young children. I know the Lord had me see them at that moment in my life. I praise God I was able to help them in some way, which I was surprised at their response to my help. Not the same with the homeless in big cities, where cash is all they want to buy more booze, cigarettes, and drugs. a meaningful post, Heidi.

    • Thank you for sharing from your experience, friend! Yes, praise God you were able to help and show the love of God in a practical way.
      I am reminded of Isaiah 58:7-9
      Blessings to you as you bless those around you 🙂
