Let us pray with you

"But He’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what GOD is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don’t take yourself too seriously—take God seriously."
Micah 6:8 (MSG)


Jan. 15-21, 2017


Lord God Almighty, Your Word constantly tells us that You love justice and mercy and walking after You wholeheartedly. Father, there’s a hurting world around us that needs to see Your life lived out through those of us who love You. We pray that Your Holy Spirit would empower us to love like Christ and break our hearts with the things that break Yours, 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.

Monthly Devotional

January Prayer

"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the heavenly prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14 (AMP)


Dear Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus. Thank you for giving me another blessed year to be in Your Will and pursue the Prize that is Jesus in everything I do this year. Let this year be one of forgetting what is behind: all past mistakes, anything that did not bring You glory or cause me to be closer to You. Lord Jesus I reach for You in this new year in all my relationships, I pursue You in directing me with every decision I make and I desire to make You my ultimate goal for everything that lies ahead. Help me, Lord to make this year about my relationship with You as I begin, continue and end the year. Help me Holy Spirit to make Jesus that one thing and only thing that matters most this year. Father God, bless this New Year, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
