Prayer: Grace for Lent Family Fast Day 2018

Is not this the sort of fast that pleases me – to share your bread with the hungry, and not turn from your own kin?

Isaiah 58:5-7

Everlasting God, 

we give you thanks
for you nourish and strengthen us
with your merciful love.

Give us this day our daily bread.

We pray for those
who hunger in scorched lands,
with no food for their children.
Together, we cry out for justice.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Help us to share generously
as one global family,
and to hold onto hope
for a world transformed.

Bread of life,
we pray your people
may find life and joy
in all its fullness.

Through Christ our Lord,
Amen.
