Prayer for the Millennium Goals

 
 
 

Prayer for the Millennium Goals

 

In a world where so many go hungry,

        Let us make the fruits of Creation available for all.

In a world where one billion of our brothers and sisters do not have safe drinking water,

        Let us help the waters run clear.

In a world where so many children die so young,

        And so many mothers die in childbirth,

        And so many families are ravaged by disease,

        Let us bring health and healing.

In a world where women carry such heavy burdens,

        Let us recognize and restore the rights of all.

Let us join together, with a new sense of global community,

A new awareness of our need for one another

And for this fragile planet,

To meet the clear challenges of the Millennium Goals,

To bring hope as substantial as bread,

To make human dignity as visible as wheat in the fields.

Every child, woman and man deserves to get the basic nutrition their body requires. It’s us who can make sure they are not deprived.

Globally more than 173 Million people stood up against poverty in 2009, a Guinness World Record!



Let us break this record in 2010!
