The Cries of God

We pray for our daily bread.
Yet for millions of people around the world,
their daily bread consists of
violence, famine and destruction.
Did God hear our prayer and not theirs?

God hears the cries of the poor.
We do not hear the cries of God
asking us to be divine hands
tending to the needs of the poor.

God took on human form
as a vulnerable baby,
the child of homeless refugees,
needing human help
in the ongoing work of creation.

We are God’s messengers
delivering food and hope
to those living with hunger and death.

From Thoughts of a Blind Beggar
Orbis Books
