Prayer for our pantry:

Almighty God,

In Your provident love, You have created all that exists, so that the needs of all may be met.

May your Spirit of Love, make us one with those in need and empower us to serve those who hunger for You and hunger for earthly food.

Raise up those whose gifts will be used in building a just world that seeks to serve the least among us.

Though Jesus Christ we pray that all we say, do and think give glory to Your Holy Name.

AMEN
