Let us pray with you

"Beloved, let us [unselfishly] love and seek the best for one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves [others] is born of God and knows God [through personal experience]."
1 John 4:7 (AMP)


August 21-27, 2016


Dear Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, help me to love as You love me. Your love is so powerful and the challenges I face cannot outlast the power of Your love. Holy Spirit, help me to be unselfish in my thoughts, words and deeds toward others, which is true Biblical love. Help me to seek the best in others as the Father seeks the best from each of us. When I love like You love it reveals how much I know You. 1 Corinthians 13:4 AMP – "Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant", 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.

Monthly Devotional

August Prayer

"First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people, for kings and all who are in [positions of] high authority, so that we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This [kind of praying] is good and acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wishes all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge and recognition of the [divine] truth."
1 Timothy 2:1-4 (AMP)


Dear Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, we offer prayers and thanksgiving for all leaders in our communities, our State and our nation. You command us in Your Word to pray for others regardless of their position or beliefs. We pray for the leaders in our government, law enforcement, legal system, school system, local and national businesses and in the body of Christ. Lord, help them to hear and obey Your Holy Spirit. We pray for our leaders’ protection and those who support these local and national leaders. Lord, You established all authorities and we pray for Your Will to be done in every decision they make. We pray for their families and extended families. Please continue to sustain this country in Your image and likeness. We love You and thank You for our leaders, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
