Lord, as we look into the faces of the Rufiji people, may we see them as You see them.
May we be moved with compassion as You were when You saw the multitudes that You said were like sheep without a shepherd.
May we obey Your challenge to look on fields ready for harvest and pray for laborers to be sent into
Our prayer today is that shepherds will be sent to the Rufiji people to lead them into Your sheepfold, and that laborers will be sent to bring the gospel to the Rufiji people so there will be an abundant harvest for the kingdom of God.
And to You will be the praise, honor and glory. Amen.
