Prayer: Day 4

“pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:38)

Intentions: Pray that people may realize their call to be laborers; as priests, religious, and lay people.

Actions: Christ is the Eternal Priest (Hebrews 6:20) and, by being incorporated into His Body (I Corinthians 12:27) that is the Church, we become the royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9). One of the priestly duties we have, therefore, is to intercede and labour for those who have yet to come to Christ. Meditate on this sacred obligation we have: are we doing enough to be laborers in the field, to bring people to salvation in Christ both in action and in prayer? What actions can we take to actualize our royal priesthood more and more?

Pray as though everything depended on God.
Work as though everything depended on you.
– Saint Augustine
