A Fasting Prayer: A unified Christian voice

Join Bread for the World in prayer to end hunger

Prayer for a Unified Christian Voice

God almighty and full of grace.

We come before you, compelled by your love and your commandment, to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

We are troubled by the increase in harmful attitudes and policies toward people of color and people in need.

We pray that all faith leaders, laity, men and women, become one in defending the lives and dignity of people who struggle with hunger and poverty.

We pray for the president and Congress to draft a budget for the common good by protecting the poor, vulnerable, and oppressed, because you said that how we treat the “least of these” is how we treat you.

We acknowledge that it will be difficult to live up to our nation’s ideals.

But, we pray that your loving grace and mercy will move all of us to work united, and in solidarity, advocating for racial equity and healing, shared prosperity, and peace, in our country and worldwide.

In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
