Musician Shares the Power of Somebody's Praying for Me

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 16, 2012) — For many, Food For The Poor isn’t just their charity of choice, but also a personal prayer partner. Through Food For The Poor’s prayer ministry, the charity’s donors have the unique opportunity to pray for the needs of the poor as well as their own personal needs.

Don Moen in Shada, Haiti.

The Christian music artist Don Moen, in support of that ministry, has offered the song Somebody’s Praying for Me from his most recent album Uncharted Territory to be given as a gift to donors. When donations are made to one of Food For The Poor’s 40 radio station campaigns to help prevent the spread of chronic malnutrition in Guatemala from April 16-May 16, the song Somebody’s Praying for Me can be downloaded for free.  

“To know somebody is praying for you and lifting your intentions up to the Lord is very powerful,” said Robin Mahfood, Food For The Poor’s President/CEO. “Through the prayers of Food For The Poor’s donors and recipients, we as a charity have grown and prospered during the past 30 years.”

Moen has collaborated with Food For The Poor since 2004. During Moen’s 2011 six-city Canadian concert tour, he shared stories from his 2010 mission trip with the charity to Port-au-Prince, Cap-Haitien and Shada, Haiti. Inspired to help Moen change lives, generous audiences responded with donations to build 13 new two-room homes in Haiti.

“I am more committed than ever to bring the message of hope to those who have lost hope and to help people sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land,” said Moen, a singer, songwriter and worship leader. “Remember God is always working in ways you cannot see.”

The song Somebody’s Praying for Me can also be downloaded for free by completing a form on Food For The Poor’s website.

Food For The Poor has a department that is dedicated to praying for and with donors who have mailed in prayer requests. Thousands of prayer requests are received each month.

Approximately 15,000 hot meals are cooked and distributed from this one FFP feeding program in Port-au-Prince, six days a week.

Moen is president of Worship in Action, a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on bringing worship events, worship training, and worship in action to people worldwide.

Food For The Poor, named by The Chronicle of Philanthropy as the largest international relief and development organization in the nation, does much more than feed millions of the hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian ministry provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 96 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
