Global Poverty and Hunger

About 815 million people around the world go to bed hungry every night. Please pray for those suffering from the effects of extreme poverty and hunger. Pray especially for young children, who are most susceptible to illness and death. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB), which is a partnership of 15 Canadian churches and church-based agencies, has launched a campaign to encourage the Canadian government to increase its commitment to global aid. Compared to other wealthy nations, Canada gives much less towards ending global poverty on average. To let the Prime Minister know that we can give more to global aid, CFGB is inviting Canadians to sign and mail an “i care” postcard to Ottawa. Please pray that our government leaders would recognize the urgent need to alleviate suffering and poverty around the world. May the hearts of Canadians be moved with compassion to stand up for the poor.
