A Prayer for Bangladesh (March 25, 2019)

O God of compassion and mercy, we thank you for having helped us see what you see, hear what you hear, feel what you feel, and love whom you love, in the slums, on the sidewalks, in the railway stations, in the hospital beds, and in the villages of Bangladesh.  We thank you for leading us…

To Rifat, a severely malnourished 3-year-old boy with a cleft lip and palate, in a Dhaka slum;

To Fatima, a fatherless, homeless 8-year-old girl abused on the streets at night by men and boys;

To Lassel, a 9-year-old crippled boy crawling on his knees to beg on busy city sidewalks;

To Miraj, a 12-year-old boy surviving alone on the streets of Dhaka since age six;

To Jesmine, a garment factory worker since age 11, who was given in marriage at age 14;

To Bilkis, a woman struck in the face by the father of her three children;

To Ramjan Ali, a father pulling a rickshaw in the city so that his daughters can go to school in his village;

To Rony, an addict living on the street who entered and successfully completed a recovery program;

To Sokhina, a young mother who almost gave up hope after a ruptured appendix then weeks in a hospital, but who recovered and went home to her children;

To Champa, a second-grader paralyzed in her legs after chicken pox, but who recovered and was able to walk and run again;

And to the many others for whom we have prayed together during the past ten years.

Lord, we thank you for giving us this opportunity to look beyond ourselves and open our hearts, in faith, to others.  For in doing so, we have glimpsed the depth of your love, the immensity of your grace, and the joy in heaven when your children turn their gaze towards you.  We offer this, our Prayer for Bangladesh, in the name of Christ Jesus, the Hope and Savior of the world.  Amen.
