National Day of Prayer: President David Snell’s prayer for today
Today — May 5, 2022 — is the National Day of Prayer. The Fuller Center for Housing is an unashamedly Christian and enthusiastically ecumenical affordable housing ministry. As such, we start each day with prayer. We begin build days with prayer. We dedicate our homes with prayer. Today, though, is a special day, and we join in this movement to bring people closer to God. Therefore, Fuller Center President David Snell enthusiastically offers this prayer for today:
Dear Lord, we come to you with grateful hearts for the abundance we enjoy at Your hand. We are blessed to live in this fruitful land where, despite its many challenges, so many of us live in comfort with food to eat and shelter to keep us warm. We know, though, that many here and around the world continue to live in poverty. We ask that you open our hearts that we might make use of the plentiful resources available to us to provide decent shelter to those in need. We know that a decent home is the foundation of a healthy family and that a healthy family is the foundation of a healthy community and nation. Make us ever grateful for what we have and ever ready to share of our bounty with those in need. Amen.
