"If any want to become my follower, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."
Luke 9:23 (NRSV)
April 13 - 19, 2014
My Savior and Redeemer, let me not dread to carry the cross You have chosen for me. In this Holy week, let my cross be joined with Yours, Lord, so that come Easter 'morn, Alleluias will echo and resound because death has been conquered and victory has been revealed in the cross! In You is health, in You is life, in You is strength of mind, joy of spirit, hope for salvation and everlasting life. In Your precious and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
Christ is alive and can be served directly by serving

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.
"We have been buried with Him by baptism into death so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life."
Romans 6:4 (NRSV)
Jesus, You are risen from the dead, You are alive! Because You live, my Lord, I can face tomorrow. Because You live, my Lord, all fear is gone. You have my future in Your Hands and I thank You. Help me to know and appreciate the awesome mysteries of the redemption you have won for me. Instill Your Divine love in me that I might love others with the love You have shown me by the power of Your Holy Spirit to the glory of my heavenly Father. Alleluia! Alleluia!
