A Prayer for Haiti

The continued coverage of Haiti is heartbreaking. I imagine, like myself, Haiti is on your mind. Perhaps you have already donated to one of the many relief organizations. Something we can all do is pray. Last year, at Thanksgiving, my mother sent me this Thanksgiving Prayer by Samuel F. Pugh. It is so appropriate.

Oh, God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me
to remember the jobless;
When I have a warm home,
help me to remember the homeless;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer;
And remembering, help me
to destroy my complacency
and bestir my compassion.
Make me concerned enough to
help, by word and deed,
those who cry out
for what we take for granted.

Samuel F. Pugh

"For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed Me..." Matthew 25:35.
