"Yet even now, says the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and relents from punishing."
Joel 2:12-13 (RSV)
March 9 - 15, 2014
O God,my Creator and Redeemer, help me this Lent to grow in awareness and appreciation of Your love for me. Open my eyes to see You in all the joys, disappointments, sorrows, pain and bitter circumstances of my life. Help me recognize Your unending love and abiding presence as I daily meditate on Your passion. I adore You as I give you thanks and praise in Jesus name. Amen.
Christ is alive and can be served directly by serving
Christian Prayer Services
All of us face life’s challenges daily, and at times also have cause to celebrate moments of special blessing. We invite you to contact us during these times so that we can join with you in prayer.
Food For The Poor's 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)
Accordingly, we encourage regular prayer to guide and maintain the purity of our mission. Prayer is a fundamental part of our ministry.
At our headquarters in Coconut Creek, Florida, Food For The Poor staff members hold daily prayer services. We receive prayer requests through the mail, by telephone or through our Web site, and we regularly pray for the poor as well as for our donors and their needs.
"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake."
Psalm 23: 1-3 (NRSV)
Lord, thank You for being my Shepherd-King. Help me to trust in Your all-consuming presence. Instill in me that I have nothing to fear because You are always with me. My Good Shepherd, daily assure me that You are continually guiding, comforting, healing, protecting and leading me beside ‘still waters’. Lord restore my soul and lead me in right paths for Your name sake. Amen.
