Prayers for those who have no home in this cold weather

These are prayers I use with my kids (from the book A Child's First Book of Prayers by Lois Rock & Alison Jay)

Dear God,
I pray for those who have no home,
who walk the streets,
who trudge the roads.
I pray for those who want to help them
with the door of welcome
and the meal of companionship
and the bed of rest.
May they be a blessing, the one to the other. Amen.

I climb into my soft bed
and remember those who life is hard;
I snuggle under my warm quilt
and remember those whose life is cold;
I lay my head upon my pillow
and pray that you will give us all rest. Amen.
