Prayer for those who Hunger


We live in a hungry world, Lord 
Please help us to remember that in our world 
Where kitchen tables are full and grocery stores abound 
Still many people, even in this country, go hungry 
Or have to make a choice between food on the table and other necessities of life. 
Help us to share what we have with all those in need. 

We live in a hungry world, Lord 
Please help us remember that in our world 
There are many people who have disposable income, 
And yet there are many who live from paycheck to paycheck. 
Help us to work for a more just economy beginning with a living wage for all. 

We live in a hungry world, Lord 
Please help us remember that in a world 
Where the ideals of equality and the dignity of each person should rule 
That there are many, all over the world, denied these rights 
And men and women are held as prisoners for living in faith with conviction. 
Help us to work for equality and dignity and ensure religious freedom 
Both here and abroad. 

We live in a hungry world, Lord 
Please help us remember that, as we raise our voices to you in prayer 
That there are many, even in this country, who do not know you or deny your existence. 
Help all of us to truly know that our lives and our hearts are restless until they rest in You. 
Help us to do all we can, with your constant help, to satisfy our very hungry world, Lord. 

Amen.
