Plenty of folks claim to believe that it is a true promise.

Jesus will have earthly subjects, or citizens everywhere on Earth as found at Psalms 72:8, 12-16.
Mankind will see the return of the Genesis ' tree of life ' on Earth as per Rev. 22:2 for the ' healing ' of earth's nations.
"healing" as including that even ' enemy death ' will be No more on Earth as per 1st Corinthians 15:26; Isaiah 25:8.
No one will say, "I am sick..." as per Isaiah 33:24, and each person will plant and eat as per Isaiah 65:21.
Also, the 35th chapter of Isaiah also paints a beautiful word picture for us of a beautiful coming paradisical Earth for us.
So is this a "yes"? You will pray for Jesus' second return which will end world hunger?

Of course! Note that it may take a few thousand years or centuries or millenniums or a time frame we don't have a name for yet

Yeah, but when it comes to things like world hunger, even they can see it can't be literally true, lol. Which is, of course, the point of your thread and the reason why you aren't getting any responses from fundamentalists.

We all know the standard responses anyway. It's God's will that people starve and not ours to question why God lets bad things happen. There's a reason for everything. The poor ye always have with you. Mysterious ways. Etc.

If Santa exists and has magic than all the good children of the world can expect gifts this Christmas. That's a big IF, however.

Well, has it happened without a specific plea via prayer?

So you practically are not ready to do anything about alleviating world’s hunger besides praying to Jesus?

She's an atheist. She's not praying to Jesus or anybody else.

She's making a point about the claims of people who believe Jesus will answer their prayers.

Dear God:

Please help these lazy, shiftless poor people get off their a$$es and get some food.

Amen.

There. I've done my part.
