ICF Prayer Focus
Those whose work involves housing and the housing market
Living God, who left your home in heaven, knew what it meant to have no home, and graced the houses of rich and poor, righteous and outcast with your presence; your commands and laws reflect your concern that every member of society should dwell in conditions that are secure and decent. Forgive us if we imagine that the provision of housing and the nature of human dwellings lies beyond your concern. So we pray for those in our society whose work provides accommodation in all its forms. May those who can affect the nature of housing, fulfil their task in sympathy with those who will inhabit it; may those who manage resources act with compassion and justice; and those who stand to gain financially not abuse their position. Help each to sense the part they play in fulfilling your purpose for the wellbeing of humanity. AMEN
