Let us pray with you

"Then Peter came to Him and said, 'Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?' Jesus said to him, 'I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven'."
Matthew: 18:21-22 (NKJV)

Dec. 10-16, 2017

Lord, Your birth was the beginning of Your journey to the cross for our forgiveness. Help us to follow Your example of forgiveness, even when it's painful and even when it's not deserved. Not only because it is a healing for those whom we forgive, but also because it lifts a huge cross from our own shoulders that better allows us to love others as You love us, 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.

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."
Isaiah 7:14 (ESV)

Immanuel – by Michael Chin Quee

O come O come Immanuel God with us on earth.
It's time for us to celebrate the coming of His birth.
For long proclaimed in sacred writs a Messiah would be born,
the one Isaiah professed, would live a life of scorn.
This little babe was born to die, never so before;
His purpose was to save the world, His own blood He would pour.
Three days later He was glorified, risen from the dead;
you would think now everyone would believe and do the very things He said.
I have come that you may live, your life is mine to give, sins paid for, captives set free, it's time for jubilee.
Now just remember who paid the bill, an act of His perfect will;
It was the little babe of Bethlehem who is Immanuel.
