Official Provincial Elders’ News for October 2013

Prayer Day for Children

On a Sunday in October, congregations of the Northern and Southern Provinces are invited to join with thousands of other congregations across the nation in the thirteenth annual national observance of Children’s Sabbath. Endorsement of the Children’s Sabbath was made by the Provincial Elders’ Conferences in January 1994.

Prayer Day for World Mission, 
October 13, 2013

The second Sunday in October has been designated as a special Day of Prayer for World Mission. Pray for the ministries in our Partner Provinces—Alaska, Guyana, Eastern West Indies, Honduras, Labrador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Western Tanzania; our new work in Peru, Sierra Leone and Cuba; and for wisdom and guidance for our Worldwide Unity. And pray that God will persist in revealing to us where the church in North America is called to mission, both locally and globally, that God’s love may be known throughout the world.
For specific information for your prayers about these and other new and continuing ministries, please see the BWM website, www.moravianmission.org.

Tuesday, January 16 — Psalm 11
Genesis 19:1–29; Matthew 7:1–12

You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or anything that belongs to your neighbor. Deuteronomy 5:21 (NIV)

Jesus said, “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.” Luke 12:15

Forgive us, Lord Jesus, when we fail to remember that the craving of material goods leads to spiritual poverty. May our energies be directed into investing in the treasures of your spirit. Amen.
