Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Lenten Reflections: Fifth 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):

Jeremiah 31:31-34
Psalm 51:1-12
or Psalm 119:9-16
Hebrew 5:5-10
John 12:20-33


O Christ, we live in a world filled with suffering and death, but you call us to follow you and serve you. May your abundant mercy open our eyes to new ways we can create hope and opportunity for hungry people.



Members of Congress pay special attention to the local newspapers in their district and state. Write letters to the editor and contribute op-ed pieces so your representative and senators in Washington, D.C., see that their constituents believe ending hunger should be a national priority.
