We are Called
to Respond to Hunger
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
Nearly 800 million people in the world are hungry.
More than 49 million of our neighbors in the United States,
including 16 million American children,
are not always sure where their next meal is coming from.

Through you all things are possible.
You provide all that we need.
Your earth produces enough food to feed the world.
Yet people are still hungry.
Help us to see where your perfect balance has been upset.
Help us to restore that balance and feed all who are hungry.
In Jesus' name we pray.
