"For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6 (ESV)
Dec. 14 - 20, 2014
Gracious God, we thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ. As we reflect on this season, grant that His light might shine through us, in our families and in our work places. Dispel the darkness of malice, envy, bitterness and unforgiveness and let the splendor of His everlasting light shine through us. In His most precious name we pray, 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.
"And the angel said to them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord'."
O come O come Emanuel, God with us on earth.
For long proclaimed in sacred writs a Messiah would be born,
This little babe was born to die, never so before;
Three days later He was glorified, risen from the dead;
I have come that you may live, your life is mine to give, sins paid for, captives set free, it's time for jubilee.
