Global Day of Prayer to End Famine

The Global Day of Prayer to End Famine hopes to unite ecumenical partners and faith communities all over the world as a prayerful and spiritual movement to:

  • Encourage prayer, reflection and action with information and suggestions.
  • Bring awareness regarding famine’s impact on the most vulnerable children and families and to help address its root causes.
  • Connect with church-related and other humanitarian organizations that are currently working to bring immediate relief and positive long-term change so children and families can live out God’s aspiration for a dignified, peaceful and violence-free future
  • Help communities and congregations to uphold each other in prayer and support, by sharing experiences, challenge and solutions.

A second global day of prayer, the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine will be observed on 10 June 2018.

As a contribution by the faith community to a global effort to prevent famine, the 2017 Global Day of Prayer to End Famine played a critical role in raising awareness in faith communities and among global leaders of this under-reported and unfolding tragedy. This united effort was a strong contribution to mobilizing greater action across the world which led to famine being averted in the short-term, while the risk continues into 2018.

May our prayers join the millions of our sisters and brothers as they cry to the Lord to be delivered from their distress. May we, together, make a straight way, to sustained peace, wellbeing and abundance!
