Greater Power

Every month we have a pastor/reverend from a different church write us a new and inspirational prayer to offer the recipients of our food services. We place a copy of this prayer into each of the grocery bags we hand out and then they can take it or leave it, most take it. We feel that most who come to us are having a pretty rough time and could use some comforting words to help them through, every little bit helps.

So I thought I would start to share the monthly prayer.

Here is Junes prayer:

n spite of all the riches and resources of this country, we are still confronted with the curse of widespread hunger. Too often we take our daily bread for granted while others go hungry. Let us not forget those all over the world who must struggle to feed themselves and their families. Those who are hungry need the gift of food as well as the Word of God. Help us to remember the needs of the whole man. Let us receive this food package with a heart of thanksgiving. May it serve as a reminder of your faithfulness in every circumstance and every situation. Lord, teach us to trust you with all that we have.
We pray this prayer in the wonderful name Jesus, the
Bread of Life. Amen.
