Heavenly Father, today we pray for the 2000+ Food for the Hungry staff members who are working strategically to end poverty. Thank you for their tireless ministry to the poorest of the poor. Bless their efforts to provide food, but also to empower the impoverished to develop their own food and resources. Bless their efforts to give those in need dignity and a sense of who they can be in Christ. Lord, we also thank you for the ministry of Renovare, which is providing spiritual formation resources for the FH staff. May the encouragement, development and resources they provide better equip FH staff as they continually live and serve in sad, hard situations. May both FH and Renovare staff members develop rich inner lives, sustained by your Spirit through your Word and prayer. May they be spiritually fruitful and multiply. We ask these things in Jesus’ name, amen.
