Lenten Prayers and Reflections - Week 7

This Lent, we invite you to join us in weekly reflection for hungry children around the world.

In these challenging times we believe that coming together virtually in this way will draw us closer as a community and connect us more deeply with the children and communities we serve.

Please spread the word by sharing our Lenten reflections with your friends, family and church community. 

We are honored and humbled to walk the 40 days of Lent with you.

Week 7 Reflection

Joy is… 

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.  

Romans 12:12 

This week, we are reflecting on the power of hope. We have all experienced difficult times in our lives and the last 12 months have been especially hard for many of us.  

During these times of hardship, it is our faith, our hope, and our sense of community that sees us through.  

We can take comfort in the knowledge that our prayers and support help to feed the hopes of more than 1.7 million children around the world through the provision of a daily meal in their place of education.  

Hope allows us to dream, and every child has the right to dream about what their future might hold. These children are not mere statistics or numbers. There is much that we can learn from them as we walk alongside them on this Lenten journey.   

Let’s join them in joyful hope by telling their stories and remembering them every day in our prayers.  

Please join us on Easter Sunday for one final reflection.
