God of grace and God of mercy,
Our hearts break as we watch stories on the news,
Of dangerous flood, of lost lives, and rains that won’t stop.
Of trembling earth that destroys homes and takes lives.
We trust that you are present in the desperation and hopelessness that abounds.
Transform our broken hearts so that we might be agents of your love in the coming days and months.
God in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Millions throughout the Caribbean and the southern United States have been and continue to be affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria. Many lives continue to be at risk. At the same time, earthquakes in Guanajuato and Mexico City have left hundreds dead and more missing. Many of our partner denominations and organizations are responding to these disasters. They are bringing hope to our neighbors, particularly to the most vulnerable people.
Some are working through national agencies, while others are working diligently with local churches and organizations. We have highlighted several of our partners’ national efforts below. To help victims of the two earthquakes in Mexico we refer you to the Cruz Roja Mexicana, the Red Cross of Mexico.
We are proud to partner with these denominations and organizations in our work to end hunger.
Rev. Nancy Neal is interim director of church relations at Bread for the World.

Unnecessarily long prison sentences, combined with the lack of rehabilitative programs for people in prison, exacerbate hunger, poverty, and existing inequalities.
