A Collect to Care for those Who Have No One

Lord Jesus Christ, who has great compassion for the poor and needy, give us hearts that care for those for whom there is no one to care for them, that we would be like our Father, who has compassion on all his children and desires that none be lost and alone, through you who took on our frail flesh and now intercedes for us with the Father and Holy Spirit in heaven. Amen. ‘When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.’ – Matthew 9:36
