Prayer: Let Me Hunger Enough

“One does not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes
from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4

Lord, let me hunger enough that I not forget the world’s hunger.
Lord, let me hunger enough that I may have bread to share.
Lord, let me hunger enough that I may long for the Bread of Heaven.
Lord, let me hunger enough that I may be filled.

But, O Lord,
let me not hunger so much
that I seek after that which is not bread,
nor try to live by bread alone. Amen.
