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 and poverty.
As we pray and reflect during this time of fast, we pray that “justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Holy Spirit please bring conviction into the hearts and minds of our lawmakers so they enact laws that elevate the self-worth of those most vulnerable in our society.
God, we pray that as they consider legislation, our lawmakers be reminded that we all have been created in your image and there is an intrinsic dignity in each of us that calls for uplifting every man and woman, young and old. God in your mercy, hear our prayer.
