The Last Day

Eternal God,
how easily we forget, that,
on the last day,
you will be judging us
not according to our beliefs,
nor by our good intentions,
but according to who we have fed
and who we have given to drink.

May we live such, that,
on the last day,
we will find ourselves standing before you
not burdened by good gifts hoarded,
nor regretting the fruits of the earth wasted,
but with hands empty and arms outstretched,
ready to receive your warm embrace.

More prayers on food and hunger

All good things come from you

Grace for those who hunger

As we break bread together

Journey with us

At this table

Break the bread, Lord

Enough for everyone

Let us share our feast: a grace

On the road to Emmaus

The burden of hunger
