Lord God, during this season of love, joy, and peace, help me to remember those who need to know Your love in their lives through the touch of my hands.
I need to touch those confined to their beds of affliction in their homes, in convalescent homes, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. Father, they need to know Your love through me. Help me seek out and help people in homeless shelters, people who need to eat in community kitchens, and those whose only source of food is a local food pantry.
You said it is my responsibility to seek out those who are in need and show them the love of Christ. Help me, Lord, to come out of my selfishness and reach out to those in need and give them the real meaning of the season: Your love through Jesus Christ.
I ask that you help me to look beyond being uncomfortable or feeling out of place and understand they can’t do anything to me. Help me not to do it just for this month or the next few weeks, but help me keep this spirit of giving all year long.
Help me, Lord, to be selfless like Christ, for this is the real reason for the season. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
