A Prayer for Bangladesh
O heavenly Father, we pray for Aklima, a blind twelve-year-old girl squatting at the top of the steps of an uncovered, iron footbridge spanning a frantically jam-packed, exhaust-filled vehicle thoroughfare in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Wearing a thin cotton blouse and pants and with only a scarf over her head to protect her from the stormy weather, she feebly extends a white plastic begging bowl containing a mixture of coins and rainwater. From her family’s slum dwelling north of town, her mother leads her into the heart of the city each day and deposits her at one of several begging spots. Aklima has never attended school and cannot even remember how many years she has been blind. How long must we wait, O Lord, how long shall we cry for your justice and mercy? Lift Aklima off the street and hold her in your arms of grace, we pray in the name of the Savior, your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.
