Wisdom and Compassion for Shaun Donovan the Future Secretary of HUD

A homeless person
For insight and wisdom for President Elect Obama’s choice for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Shaun Donovan, so the homeless may be helped and those in difficulty with their housing situation may be assisted

The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
—Matthew 25:40

Loving God, in Your goodness and love You have sought us out and offered us the free gift of salvation. We praise and glorify You for such extraordinary love; it is expressed in the love we show for one another, especially those in dire need.

Lord, we thank You for leading President-Elect Barack Obama to choose Shaun Donovan to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. We pray that you will give him great compassion and wisdom, enabling him to see the needs of others above his own at all times. May he be willing to fight for “the least of these” as an advocate for those who otherwise might have none. Heavenly Father, let Your will be done through the work of Shaun Donovan and his team, in the name of Jesus we pray, amen.
