Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know, O how my heart aches for those who do not know you. There is no other name by which I am free from the depths of despair. In all of my days, I pray for the one in nine people in this world who is suffering from hunger. I ask that we who have enough will reach into our own resources to give help to these who are starving. Jesus, you have said, “When you give help to the least of these, you have given to me.” Give us guidance, wisdom, and the willing soul that we possess, I pray. Amen
