Veteran’s Day Prayers

Donate time or money to help our homeless Veterans. Let’s remember their service. Thank you for our veterans, Oh Lord, and bless each and every one of them today and every day. Whether they are home or far away, protect and love them. May all of our Vets have a comfortable, pleasant, happy home.  Please guide them to it in the name of Jesus. Thank you, Heavenly Father.

 

“Barack Obama is tackling the issue with his “Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness,” an initiative that aims to end chronic and veteran homelessness by 2015. He’s working to meet this goal by mainstreaming housing, health, education and human service programs.On any given night last January, 67,495 homeless veterans were sleeping on the streets, a 56 percent decline since the president took office, according to the Annual Homelessness Assessment Report to Congress.

“Under the leadership of President Obama, we are witnessing unprecedented national unity in the campaign to end and prevent veteran homelessness,” Patrick Ryan, Chairman of the NCHV Board of Directors, said in a press release. “The progress we have seen from the federal agencies, the Congress, the community partners NCHV represents, and the American people in just the last three years give rise to the expectation that this campaign will succeed.”
