From November 29-January 18 Christians all across our nation are praying, fasting,
and advocating for fast action on extreme poverty. People are pledging to fast, to
donate the cost of a meal ($10) to Micah Challenge, and to sign a letter to President-
elect Obama urging him to Act FAST to support the Millennium Development Goals
and cut global poverty in half by 2015.
Micah Challenge has produced a Prayer Guide that is filled with stories, information on developing nations, and prayers that been created by our sisters and brothers living in some of the nations that are facing extreme poverty.
During this holiday season, I am seizing this opportunity to fast, pray, learn and advocate for the most vulnerable members of the human family. Would you join with me and act FAST?
“He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
