ICF Prayer Focus
Those who work for charitable organisations
Loving God; friend of the poor; protector of the widow and the orphan, we remember that our understanding of charity is rooted in our understanding of your love; and that you called us to reflect our love for You, by loving our neighbour as ourself. So we pray for all those who are engaged in the work of charitable institutions; forgive us in our world of regulations and strategies if we have made their task more complex and regimented than it needs to be, and help us all, whether employee, volunteer or donor to never let duties and roles become an end in themselves, but always a true expression of commitment and compassion. Through Jesus Christ our Lord AMEN
