The Christian prayer life can sometimes feel stale. It doesn’t mean your faith is weak, or that you’re doing something wrong—so don’t get hung up on it! It just happens. But if you want to connect with God and don’t know how to pray, or simply don’t feel like praying…then these everyday prayers are for you. 


Are There Enough Resources?

Famine. Draught. Homelessness. Food insecurity. For some of us, these seem like far-away problems faced by historical figures or people in distant lands. For many others, these are current, lived realities.

While rent and housing prices soar, fresh water becomes more regulated and scarce, and it’s easier to find fast food than fresh food in many of our inner cities. Access to essential resources no longer feels like a 21st-century given.

As we’re thinking about how to responsibly care for our neighbors, and making life choices to help alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable, we also cry out to God to continue to see and work in these areas, just as he has provided for us throughout time.

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:15-17). 

A Prayer for Essential Resources

Lord of the desert, you brought forth water from a rock to quench the thirst of your people. Jesus, you multiplied loaves and fishes to feed the hungry. Today, we pray for all of those who still hunger, thirst, and go without shelter. We pray for the farmers, the fields, the waters, and the dwellings that provide us for the necessary resources to thrive. For those of us who have plenty, may we seek out opportunities to share our blessings. For those of us who lack, may our faith be rewarded by provision. For all of your people, may we remember to be sustained by your word and presence. Amen.
