Prayer for August 7

Prayer for August 7: Please pray with me. God of the hungry, feed us.  We heard in yesterday’s Gospel story that Jesus went to a desolate place – a place where there was no life and nothing of value.  Yet, when he showed up, people came, people were healed, and people were fed – both their stomachs and their spirits.  There are so many who hunger for so many things Lord.  There are many who hunger for food, hunger for love, hunger for mercy, hunger for forgiveness, hunger for community.  Feed us to overflowing in all of these things.  And in so doing, make us your instruments so that we can go out and feed the hungry around us through your abundance.  Amen.
