Help us share our abundance, a prayer — Christian Concern for One World, UK

Based on Proverbs 13:23

 

God,

In the fields of the poor

Even when abundant fruits ripen,

Injustice sweeps them away,

And families hunger.

 

Help us to share

The fruits of your bounty

So that all your family may benefit

From your gracious gifts.

From their website:

What do “doing justice,” “loving kindness,” & “walking humbly with God” mean for us, here and now?
For over two decades, CCOW has been working with Christians who are seeking to answer this question, especially as it relates to economic justice, international relations, and care for creation.

We offer resources for prayer and action on a wide range of issues, such as trade justice, climate change, responses to refugees, sustainable development, the marks of mission, or corporate accountability. We help to plan local and national events at which people can gather information, spend time in prayer, and join in conversation and planning with others who care about the same questions. And we’ve played a major role in campaigns from Jubilee 2000 to Pray and Fast for the Climate to local Fairtrade Town bids.

We don’t aim to suggest that there are always easy answers … or to offer a programme that we want everyone to follow. Rather, we work by providing resources and making connections that facilitate sharing information and concerns, sharing in prayer, sharing in reflection and action, and sharing among different communities.
