DECEMBER PRAYER For FOOD SECURITY
DID YOU KNOW?
Over 80% of people in the West Island do not live within walking distance of a grocery store.
19,000 people live under the poverty line.
74% of these people do not have access to fresh produce within walking distance.
23% of households in the West Island pay over 30% of their income in housing costs.
This makes their housing unaffordable. This could also make food difficult to purchase.
This Christmas season there will be many people in the west island struggling to put food on the table.
HOW TO PRAY:
“This Christmas we are serving 260 families and I would ask that people pray that each of these families would feel cared for/loved and deserving of this gift. As well, that there would be opportunities either that day or in the future to further build relationships with them that would ultimately lead them in the direction of coming to know the Lord.“
- Wendy Gariepy, West Island Mission
“I would like to ask West Island churches to come together and support each other. As a community, we need to care deeply and share what we have (including food and hospitality). During the Holidays, a lot of awareness is raised towards those who are food insecure, but we must not forget that it is an issue that affects many people throughout the year as well."
- Christina Colt, Mobilization Agent CODI/Collective Impact Project on Food Security
VERSE OF THE WEEK
Therefore, dear friends, since you are waiting for these things, strive to be found at peace, without spot or blemish, when you come into his presence. (...) Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard that you do not get led astray by the error of these unprincipled men and fall from your firm grasp on the truth. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be the honour both now and on that eternal day.
Peter 3:14, 17-18 (NET)
CollectS of the week
The First Sunday in Advent
Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty, to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
The Second Sunday in Advent
Blessed Lord, who has caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of your holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
