This week was the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and we want to pray for the impoverished and the impacts of poverty that are not merely financial, but spiritual as well. Pray for an end to poverty, for justice, peace and reconciliation in difficult places, and for God to grant us faith, courage to work to end poverty together. May we grieve together and walk in compassion with the suffering that comes from the damaging effects of poverty. May we be witnesses of love, hope and peace, and co-workers in caring for God’s creation in all forms.
