Luke 11:42-44, NRSV
 
42 “But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and herbs of all kinds, and neglect justice and the love of God; it is these you ought to have practiced, without neglecting the others. 43 Woe to you Pharisees! For you love to have the seat of honor in the synagogues and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces. 44 Woe to you! For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without realizing it.”

A prayer for the most vulnerable among us

Holy God, keep us mindful of brothers and sisters who lack basic resources in these times. We pray for all who are hungry or without a safe place to stay. We pray for all in homeless shelters, in prisons, in detention centers, where close quarters make physical distancing even more difficult. We follow a Christ who looked out for the most vulnerable, the least, the last, and the lost. Help us too, in these anxious times, to serve first the ones who need the most. Amen.
