A Fasting Prayer: Crying out to God

Join Bread for the World in prayer to end hunger

Editor’s note: Until the end of the 115th Congress, Bread for the World and its partners will be praying and fasting, as part of the For Such a Time as This: A Call to Prayer, Fasting, and Advocacy project, to ensure that lawmakers protect vital programs for people who struggle with hunger.

In times like these we cry out to you O God,

…we fear what will happen to our children and families if we lose our health care.

…we fear that families will not have food for their tables.

…we fear that many must choose between food and medicine and that’s no choice at all.

In you all things are possible O God.

…we pray that you will move the hearts of those in power, especially Congress.

…we pray that they protect heath care for the most vulnerable of your children.

…we pray that together, we will seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you.
