Let us pray with you

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
Matthew 5:43-44 (NIV)

August 14 – 20, 2022

Lord Jesus, even though trials, persecutions, sorrow, pain and hurt are prevalent in these times, You have taught us to love our enemies and to pray for them. We can only do so by Your grace and the power of Your Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, help us to forgive others as You have forgiven us and, to love as You have loved us. Let us not be tempted to hold a grudge or to show hatred and animosity but rather let the light of Jesus Christ shine in and through us and extinguish the darkness around us. In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Prayer Services

As a faith-based organization, prayer is a fundamental part of our ministry. We pray daily for the poor who are still suffering, our donors, and each other. Prayer renews our sense of mission and offers inspiration for the work that we do each day.

Our ministry reflects God’s unconditional love, which surrenders all, inspires trust and faith, and embraces all people, regardless of race, status or creed. We believe that Christ is alive, and that we can best serve Him by assisting those in greatest need. (Matthew 25:40)

As a part of the Food For The Poor family, we invite you to contact us so that we can join with you in prayers of petition, thanksgiving, and praise. Send us your prayer requests through this form, in the mail, or by telephone.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.

Revelation 4:8 (NIV)

Father God, thank You for Your constant love, care, and provision. Help us to focus more on You, than our wants and needs. Shift our eyes to higher things: Your righteousness, mercy and peace. Help us remember the brevity of life and the urgency to seek Your kingdom first above all things. Turn our focus from worrying towards serving You and glorifying You in the world. Help us to trust You more and more every day. Remind us of Your extravagant, generous love. Continue to guide us on the right path as we lay our worries at Your feet. We ask this in the precious name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Amen.
