Join us in prayer for those living in hunger around the world:
Open the eyes of our lawmakers so they see and feel the pain of the millions of people in our nation and around the world that are struggling with hunger and poverty.
Move their hearts to draft a budget that may feed the hungry; clothe the naked, care for the sick, and provide true opportunities to move the poor out of poverty.
Remind them that a higher form of worship is to serve the most vulnerable, for as they care for poor and hungry people, they are caring for you.
We pray that your Holy Spirit will reveal into their hearts that what makes a nation great is not its military might, financial resources, or political clout; but how it pursues the common good of all its citizens, and especially the most vulnerable.
Remind them of your promise in the book of wisdom that says: “One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his good deed.”
Oh God hear our cry for justice!
In Christ’s name, we pray.
