Inclusive Food Ministry
We know that compassion to the food- insecure is more than food distribution. It is a ministry to the whole person – mind, body, spirit.
Our tendency is to think locally and the immediate. But what are the wider issues? Do we pray for proper weather for major crop growers? Do we pray that processors will render safe and reasonably priced goods? Do we pray for governments, politicians and transporters to be honest and upright?
2 May he judge your people in righteousness,
your afflicted ones with justice.
3 May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,
the hills the fruit of righteousness.
4 May he defend the afflicted among the people
and save the children of the needy;
may he crush the oppressor.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
