The Salvation Army Wiseman Centre, St. John’s, N.L.
We praise God for the opportunity to support and minister to those individuals who are homeless, lonely and in poverty. We are also thankful for a community that continues to give generously to those in need.
Pray for the individuals we serve at the Wiseman Centre who are battling with addictions, mental health issues, poverty and homelessness. Pray that staff will exhibit patience, compassion and servitude as they support both participants and community on a daily basis.
The shelter continues to highlight that homelessness is a real issue and much is still required to ensure that no individual needs to spend a night out on the street. Pray for a strong sense of government and community awareness for action. We all have a part to play in breaking the vicious cycle that locks people into homelessness and poverty.
