Let us pray with you

"The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise."
Psalm 51:17 (NRSB)

May 1-7, 2016

Father, I am grateful that Your requirement for me to come to You is so simple. All that You ask is that I come to You humbly and bring my sincere sorrow... humility doesn't seem like enough to me. I often feel like I must do something to "make up" for the wrong I have done. The truth is that I cannot earn Your grace; it is a gift. Thank You for cleansing my heart so that I may be used in Your service and for Your glory today, 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.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
1 John 1:9 (NIV)

A Prayer of Assurance in God’s Love and Forgiveness

Oh, Father, Your Spirit within me testifies with my spirit that I am you child! Father, when guilt tries to put a veil between me and you, a veil that does not exist, remind me that Your arms are always open wide and Your love is always ready to embrace my heart. And when I repent of my sins, help me to rest in the assurance of Your forgiveness. You proved Your love on the cross, yes, on the cross where Your Son Jesus died for me. And He rose again so that I may live a new life with You. Oh, God, through my journey on earth, please continually sever any sinful desire within me and please keep me ever near to You and near the cross, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

This prayer was inspired by the following Scriptures: Romans 8:16; Matthew 27:51; 1 John 1:9; Psalm 63:8
