Prayer for Comfort for Others

For every person,
for each one, single,
of unfathomed worth,
who cries at night from hunger,
from fear,
from soul-eating loneliness;
for each and for all who suffer amidst rejoicing,
or starve amongst plenty,
or stand alone while others live with families and friends about them:
Today, I am praying for them.
You Gods, each and several of every power and disposition,
I place these people into your care.
