Lord our God, we humbly come to you in community of faith and trust, in expectation that you will listen to us an act. May our hearts be strengthened in all the suffering, pain and in all the conflicts and violence of our present world.
Reveal your will, Almighty God, and protect those you have placed over us as decision makers. Let your will be made plain to them when they decide on our way of life, the sharing of the common cake and the food we grow and eat.
O Lord God, help your people in these times and give them strength to wait expectantly for what is morally good, healthy, ethically sound, spiritually uplifting, to live and serve in this expectation.
Grant your help to all who strive for this especially to our farmers, fisher folks and all who put food daily on our tables. May we all tell of the help that comes from you, glorify and honour you, for you always support us with your power, especially in hard times.
We make this prayer in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
