being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a
door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ.

like something to eat, they didn't ask for cookies or snack foods. Most

10:02 am Prayers for the Harvest and Workers Don't forget to set your cell phones alarm/alert to 10:02 a.m. and pray for the Harvest and Workers. Luke 10:2 Jesus told them,
"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the
harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." More
