"Then He said to them all, 'If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me'."
Luke 9:23 (NRSV)
April 12 - 18, 2015
My Savior and Redeemer, let me not dread to carry the cross You have chosen for me. Let my cross be joined with Yours, Lord. 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.

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.
"But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed."
Isaiah 53:5 (NIV)
God’s Perfect Gift - Michael Chin Quee
Forty minus one, was the lashes to be borne; Upon the back of heaven’s pride, with each his flesh was torn.
No crimes committed, no guilt was found, the perfect Lamb was He;
To Calvary’s Cross His face was turned, the Scriptures to fulfill;
Eli, Eli lema sabachthani? My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?... It is finished! was His cry, the Lamb has paid the price;
His broken body now to share, His blood that's shed for sin;
This perfect love was His free gift, accepting was my choice;
He said; Take up your cross and follow me! This is my sacrifice; My life is owed, to none but Him, Messiah, Jesus Christ.
