"For if you keep silence at such a time as this ..."
— Esther 4:14
Holy God we come to you with humility, knowing that the answer to our challenges is not wholly within us. We come with steadfastness, knowing that your love for us is everlasting. And we come with hope, knowing that in you, all things are possible.
We pray O God, for people struggling with hunger in the United States and around the world. Help us to keep our spiritual discipline of prayer, fasting, and action each month, that we might draw closer to you and help us as a nation to do our part to provide funding and support that will help end hunger. Strengthen us to speak up like Esther, and not keep silent, but rather stand with those in need.
Be with us O God, for such a time as this.
In your Holy name we pray, Amen.
Strengthen us to speak up like Esther, and not keep silent, but rather stand with those in need.
