Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Lenten Reflections: The First Sunday of Lent

On Sundays during Lent, we invite you to reflect and respond to the weekly prayer and action from our Lenten Prayers for Hungry People resource.

Lectionary readings (from the Revised Common Lectionary):
Genesis 9:8-17
Psalms 25:1-10
1 Peter 3:18-22
Mark 1:9-15


O Christ, we rejoice that you bring God’s kingdom into our lives. Grant us faith in this good news so that we may raise our voices on behalf of those who hunger in our world. Amen.


During Lent, many Christians give up a favorite food. Others participate in special fasts as a way to remember those who are hungry. You may prefer to fast for just one day — or simply skip one meal. Contribute the money you save to your church, your denomination’s hunger appeal, or Bread for the World.
