Homelessness is a growing problem in society, but it’s one that we can address through prayer. Join us in praying for those who are homeless, and asking God to help them find the support and resources they need. These devotional prayers will remind you of the plight of the homeless and how important it is to reach out to them with compassion.
In The Bible, we are commanded to love one another and help those who are less fortunate. While this means we should volunteer and help wherever possible, it also means that we should pray for the well-being of those who have less than we do. Inviting God to exercise His power in their lives can help them find the resources they need.
The following prayers will help you feel compassion for those who need help. They will also invoke God’s mighty power to intercede on behalf of those who are homeless, hungry, or otherwise suffering.
Let us pray.
Prayer for the Homeless
Holy God in Heaven,
Thank You for using Your mighty power to bless my life. I am so grateful for the knowledge of Your grace that brings all things within my reach.
Today, I pray that You will use that power to place a special blessing on all those who are homeless. I pray that You will bless them regardless of the circumstances that led to them losing their homes.
Please help these poor people get the help they need so they can find somewhere to live again. Help them find shelter to protect them while they do not have a home. Send kind Samaritans who will ensure they have food, clothing, and clean water.
I pray that You will comfort these homeless people. Help them have hope that things will improve. I pray that You will help them find somewhere to live and the means to afford it.
I pray that You will help me know what I can do to help these people. I hope that You will help me know the best way to offer time, supplies, and aid.
I offer this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
You could also offer a prayer for kindness or a prayer for better days for people struggling with homelessness.

Dear Father in Heaven,
We trust in Your plan and Your divine influence. We pray that You will continue to bless and help us throughout our lives.
Today we pray that You will help the less fortunate who are without shelter. In Proverbs, we are told that the righteous will seek justice for the poor. We pray today for that justice. Grant justice to these poor and needy.
We learn in Samuel that Jesus Christ lifts the poor and raises the needy. We pray humbly today that You will raise these people. Elevate their stature and help them find what they need.
Father, please save the needy from harm. Help them find righteous means to sustain themselves. Teach them the skills they need to gain. Please place compassion through Christ into the hearts of people who will be able to help.
We offer this prayer in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.

God, please help these needy people find help. Open the hearts of those around them to give shelter, food, comfort, and help. I pray that You will help these needy people get the help they need to be self-sufficient again.
God, please help these needy people find joy. Take care of their temporal needs so their spirits may also find nourishment and help.
I know that You have the power to help these people, and I offer myself as a tool to help accomplish Your mighty works. I pray that You will use me to help the poor, needy, and homeless.
I offer this prayer in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.

Dear God in Heaven,
I come before You today and acknowledge Your strength, wisdom, and grace. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ who saved us all.
I pray now that You will send Your ministering angels to protect those who have no homes. Please protect them from illness due to the harsh elements. Protect them from malnourishment by giving them food. Please protect them from mental ailments and temptations that will make it harder for them to break out of their current situation.
Please help these people find safe places to rest while they find a more permanent living situation. Keep them safe from rain, snow, and wind.
I pray that You will help me know what I can give to protect these people. Help me be a tool in Your holy hands to elevate homeless people to a more comfortable way of life.
