Let us pray with you

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:27 (NIV)


October 15-21, 2017


Father, we need You. Please grant all of us peace of mind. Help us to trust in Your love and care. Let us be comforted by Your strength, and rest in the promise that You will never leave us or forsake us - not even for a moment. Thank You for the blessings we have in knowing You, and the assurance of Your loving care. We ask all this in the name of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus. 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.

October Prayer

"I will rejoice and be glad in Your steadfast love, because You have seen my affliction; You have known the distress of my soul, and You have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a broad place."
Psalms 31:7-8 (ESV)

Lord, when things are going well, remind us to be thankful. When the storms of life batter us, remind us to persevere. After all, Lord, the blind men who called to you from the side of the road, the woman with the 12-year hemorrhage, the Syro-Phoenician woman’s daughter, and the paralytic who was lowered from the roof of the house were all healed because their faith allowed them to persevere – they would not give up. Thank you, Lord, for inspiring us with that beautiful quality and for persevering with us when we stray from doing your will. Amen!
