Our partner Bread for the World has come out with a great series of reflections for the season of Lent to help us remember to pray for those who are suffering around the world. Each week, we will include these readings, prayers, and actions to observe during Lent.

Jesus Announces His Plan to Go to Jerusalem
Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18
Psalm 27
Philippians 3:17-4:1
Luke 13:31-35 or Luke 9:28-43

[Jesus said,] “Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.”
-Luke 33:32b-33

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud,
be gracious to me and answer me!
-Psalm 27:7

O Christ, you willingly set your course to Jerusalem and faced death on the cross so that we might live. Grant us faith to use this gift of new life to do your work of healing the sick and feeding the hungry. Amen.

One in five children in the United States now faces the threat of hunger. Too many kids in America aren’t getting the nutrition they need to grow and learn. In 2013, Bread for the World is urging Congress to protect funding for programs that enable families in our country to feed their children.
