The World Council of Churches, World Evangelical Alliance and All Africa Conference of Churches, along with church-related humanitarian organizations and a coalition of church-related networks and organizations and partners, are promoting 10 June 2018 as the second annual Global Day of Prayer to End Famine to be observed in faith congregations worldwide. The Day of Prayer to End Famine will unite faith communities all over the world as a prayerful and spiritual movement to:
- Promote prayer, reflection and action with information and suggestions.
- Bring awareness regarding famine’s impact on the most vulnerable children and families, and help address its root causes.
- Connect with church-related and other humanitarian organizations that are currently working to bring immediate relief and positive long-term change so children and families can live out God’s aspiration for a dignified, peaceful and violence-free future.
- Help communities and congregations uphold each other in prayer and support, by sharing experiences, challenge and solutions.
