World Day of the Poor Prayer for Families

A Prayer for Families to Stay Together

Dear God, Our Father, 
 
As we remember the World Day of the Poor, we pray for our family and for all families who experience poverty around the world. 
 
When we eat, we thank you for our meal,
and we remember families who do not have enough food. 
We do not waste what we have, and we share our food with others. 
 
When we play, we thank you for the gift of free time and safety, 
and we pray especially for all the children around the world who are not able to play freely.
 
When we pray, we thank you for our family, 
and we pray for all families around the world who live in poverty. 
May you be with them, and help our family to always remember to reach out to them.
