Prayer for Others: The end of hunger

Let us pray for the poor, hungry, and neglected
all over the world,
that their cries for daily bread may inspire
works of compassion and mercy
among those to whom much has been given.
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Let us pray for the farmers
with limited or marginal land throughout the world,
for those who lack access to water and other resources,
and for the light of research and support services
to shine in the lives of all God’s people.
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Let us pray for an end to pandemic disease
throughout the world,
particularly those exacerbated
by lack of nutritious food and outright hunger;
that plagues of death may no longer fuel poverty,
destabilize nations, and inhibit reconciliation
and restoration throughout the world.
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Let us pray for an end
to the waste and desecration of God’s creation,
for access to the fruits of creation
to be shared equally among all people,
and for communities and nations
to find sustenance in the fruits of the earth
and the water God has given us.
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Let us pray for all nations and people
who already enjoy the abundance of creation
and the blessings of prosperity,
that their hearts may be lifted up
to the needs of the poor and afflicted,
and partnerships between rich and poor
for the reconciliation of the world
may flourish and grow.
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer. Amen.
