A Prayer for Bangladesh

A Prayer for Bangladesh
14 October 2013

God of all creation, we pray for Azim, a Hindu cobbler working in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Every day, on the side pavement of a crowded city street, he props up a small plastic awning, lays out his shoe repair tools, brushes, and bottles of polish, then waits for customers. For a place to sleep at night, he shares a single room with three other men also trying to make a living in the capital city. Only once every couple of months can he afford to visit his wife and children in his distant rural home. Lord, help Azim bear the hardships of living and working in Dhaka. Give strength and hope to him and all those who live as impoverished minorities in Bangladesh. We pray in the name of the One who gave his life for all. Amen.
