Being willing to give our money or traveling to local or international mission fields is not enough and by no means the greatest acts we can do to share Jesus by alleviating world hunger.
We are also called to prayer, for "the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective" (James 5:16).
As you spend yourself in behalf of the hungry, lift them up to the Father in prayer. Take time to read about the people and places we are serving, spending time in prayer for the ministry as a whole or for specific areas by utilizing resources such as:
Spend Yourself: Introduction, Reflections by Dr. Jim BaucomFalls Church: An Enduring Situation, Devotion by Dan Davenport
Southwest Virginia: Being Tightfisted, Devotion by Kristin Clifton
Haiti: Living Hungry, Devotion by Kristin Clifton
India: The Desperate Nature of Hunger, Devotion by Leslie Dunnegan
Prayer: Personal Encounters with the Hungry, Devotion by Jaclyn Olson

“And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.”
