In common acknowledgment, we lift up our voices.
For those who are hungry,
For those who are thirsty,
We ask for the justice of bread and the salvation of water.

For those who grow food and are starving,
For those who harvest crops and cannot buy them,
We ask for the justice of equitable profit and distribution.

For those who cannot grow through the concrete,
For those who are breathing more poison than oxygen,
For those who have water and cannot drink,
We ask for a fierce reconciliation for life to continually be uplifted as Holy.

For Black lives,
For Black lives,
For Black lives,
We uplift the knowledge that we more than MATTER.

Amen


The Black Church Food Security Network is in the work of building Black food sovereignty and prayer is an essential part of this work. We ask all who read and find themselves able, to say this prayer or lift up their own prayer. The reality of this work is the need for many hands, many voices, partnerships, and movement builders. Join us in this essential work through prayer and action.

Pray, give to the cause, and grow your own food.
