"Pray without ceasing ..." That's Paul's admonition to the Christians at Thessalonica, and it's Scripture's call to us today.
We know that ending extreme hunger and poverty is possible. In fact, the world's leaders recently committed to this by 2030 in their adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals. This goal is also shared by many Christian organizations that assist people struggling with hunger and poverty worldwide. But we know this isn't possible without God.
We are partnering with the OurPrayer Ministry at Guideposts, a nonprofit organization that touches millions of lives every day through products and services that inspire, encourage, and uplift. They lead thousands of people in prayer daily and receive millions of prayer petitions annually.
Together we are convening a Week of Prayer to End Hunger. The prayer campaign runs October 12-18. Here's how you can get involved:
When Jesus taught us about prayer, he kept things simple but included a call for the full realization of God's vision for the world: "Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread." Here at Bread for the World, we want to pray that same prayer faithfully and persistently.
We hope you will join us this week in lifting up:

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition in the fiscal year 2020 budget.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
