Good and gracious God.

Thank you for gathering us here today.

We pray ….       

That we see others as you see them                                  

          Open my eyes Lord

That we care for our brothers and sisters in Christ who hunger for hope, faith and food

          Open my heart Lord

That we might tenderly care for those around us                

          Open and extend my hands in fellowship Lord

That we might speak for those without a voice who hunger

          Open my mouth Lord

That we might hear another’s cry and be moved to action

          Open my ears Lord 

For you remind us:

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:35-40

We pray for everyone who is hungry whether they are across the world in Burkina Faso or in our local communities. May they be comforted by our actions and may we continue to be moved to act as disciples of Christ.

In your name we pray.

Amen
