Lent Prayer and Action March 29th

Week 6 – 29th March: Hunger

In the world 805 million people do not have enough to eat.  In the UK last year 900,000 people went to a food bank to receive 3 days’ worth of emergency food.  The fixed costs of maintaining a home and keeping children in school means households must cut back on food.  Hunger is a symptom of insecure livelihoods, poor housing, social exclusion and an unequal society.

This week you are invited to take part in the fasts or sponsor someone else.

Prayer

God of Hope, Creation, Truth, Power and Love
Help us to remember that you can do impossible things
Inspire us to work with you for change in our society
Your Kingdom come
Your will be done                 Amen
