“Is this not the fast which I choose,
To loosen the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the bands of the yoke,
And to let the oppressed go free
And break every yoke?
“Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house;
When you see the naked, to cover him;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?” Isaiah 58:6-7
We pray today for Partners in Housing and Restoration House that help individuals and families who need temporary or transitional housing, and assistance in achieving self-sufficiency. Partners In Housing is part of Winfield Scott Stratton’s legacy which included the creation of a home to care for the Pikes Peak region’s poor. Restoration House is a Christian ministry. We pray for both these civic and Christian resources that together they would successfully provide the homeless or those facing homelessness with a pathway to becoming self-sustaining. We also pray for community support for these organizations and those individuals and families that they serve.
