|2. Father, to those that hunger give food, and to those who have food give hunger for justice. Amen
|3. O Lord God, the Giver of Food; may our food give us nourishment and energy. Grant us generosity to share food with others. May our food give us the strength to serve you and may it bring happiness and peace to all. (adapted from a Hindu prayer)
|4. All praise is due to Allah who gave us food and drink and who made us. May we never forget to thank him or to follow in His way. (adapted from a Muslim prayer)
| 5 Lord, teach us, in the words of Gandhi,
to live simply that others may simply live.
Help us to know when we should give up what we want for the sake of others who need it more than we do.
We thank you that we have enough to eat, but we think of all those who suffer hunger and starvation because of famine, poverty, or war.
We pray that the needs of others may be met, as ours are.
