We know that challenges can’t be overcome without prayer.

This summer, we’re inviting you to join us in daily praying for our ministry partners and staff—both current and future—so that hungry children can receive hot meals cooked in Outside the Bowl kitchens. Pray for the request that corresponds with the day of the month. Learn how else you can be a solution to our biggest challenge.
