Prayers for the World

Our Father

give us this day our daily bread and

 forgive us for the times when

we take more than our share of the bread that belongs to all.

Let us help You fill the starving with good things,

not with scraps from our table.

Teach us how to share what is not ours to keep.

Clothe us with Your love that we may complete each

 Good work you created us to do.

Place in our hearts Your compassion for each starving child

and use our little acts of love so that they starve no more.

Amen.

(Prayer supplied by Mary’s Meals)

Hymn 229 We plough the fields and scatter

May the God of peace go with us

As we travel from this place.

May the love of Jesus keep us

firm in hope and full of grace.
