One of the best things about Nightwatch is the diversity of people who gather around the mission — “to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness, in keeping with Jesus’ teaching to love our neighbors.”

The faith of the individuals who make up Nightwatch – as volunteers, donors, workers, tenants, and homeless neighbors – is as varied in form and expression as could be imagined. A long time ago, Nightwatch decided it could not define that faith. So we keep it simple. If you are good with loving your neighbor, you are welcome. No statement of faith required. All are welcome. We are Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, and undecided.

In the spirit of generosity, we invite you to pray as you are led.

Health and Sickness
Father, we remember with compassion those who are ill in body and spirit. We ask that you would grant the resources to bring relief and healing. We especially remember those who are homeless and ill. Encourage and strengthen them in their distress. Amen.

O Lord, we remember this night those in this community who cannot sleep, whether housed or homeless. Grant your peaceful Spirit who brings rest for our souls. Let us cast our burdens upon you, and so enter into hopeful slumber. We ask this for those who suffer in silence through the night, that they may find relief. Amen.

Lord, we are overwhelmed by the needs facing this community. But we believe you are a God of abundance. There is enough room for all people to be sheltered in this community, if only we could overcome our greed, fear, and prejudice. On behalf of all who are homeless this night, we ask that your presence would keep them safe. Grant us all the resources to meet the challenges of homelessness in our neighborhood, city, and country, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
