9 December 2013 Anno Domini
Posted by Billy Kangas at his blog,
Francis has decided he’s going to try to end hunger through prayer! On December 10th, human rights day, the Pope is sparking off what’s being called, “a global wave of prayer” that will spread across the world starting noon in Australia and sweeping across the world. This will be the kickoff of a global campaign to end hunger by 2025. This is a global effort being spearheaded by Caritas Internationalis, joined by all its member organizations, and strengthened by other national leaders in ending hunger like Bread for the World.
On December 10th at noon, local time, join in the global wave of prayer by meeting with others in your community at noon and offering prayers on behalf of the hungry people in the world. Bread for the World has set up a prayer resource page with a number of prayers about ending hunger from a variety of Christian traditions. I was honored to be asked to contribute my own prayer, inspired by my Catholic liturgical tradition. Check it out and see if they are useful for you and your community as you gather in prayer to end hunger!
