PLEASE PRAY with thanks that we have nutritious food to eat and clean water to drink. We pray that this would be the case for all people all over the world. As we celebrate the Harvest, help us to be thankful for what we have and content with the things that we need.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 10, 1-4 and 17 – “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field”. Help us to know the ‘harvest field’ to which we are called to progress God’s work in our place and time.
