Let us pray with you

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)


Dec. 4-10, 2016


Dear Heavenly Father, As we celebrate the birth of Your son, Jesus, let us draw closer still to You. We know Your blessings come in many ways and we pray that they will be seen for what they are. Let them bring peace and serve as embers in our hearts that will become flames of unending contentment for You. Whether laughing or crying; joyful or heartbroken; strong or weak, let us feel Your presence and know that You are there.

While some of us will be blessed with the gift of homecoming this month, others will receive uninterrupted time alone with You in the stillness of day and darkness of silent nights. We pray that hearts are opened so that both would be received as a treasured gift from You, our Father.

We know that Your love is unconditional and You have supplied us with all we need to find contentment in the joys and sorrows of each day. Let us remember this during the Christmas season and all year long. 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.
