Pray for justice
A new year is with us and we always hope that this year will be better than the last.
I have been concerned when I have spoken with people beyond the Riverina area of NSW, when they do not know of our situation with the irrigation water.
They believe the hardship that the irrigators are experiencing is because of the drought.
However, when I explain that there is plenty of irrigation water available, but it is being withheld in NSW for other purposes, they are shocked.
My prayer for this year for our area is, ‘‘that we have justice and equity come to us’’.
Many people are suffering hardship because what they need is being withheld and masked by the drought.
We have a God of Justice and Equity, so do pray for God to act, and quickly.
We ministers of the churches are available to all people, as God is.
Please contact us if you need to, the least we can do is pray with you, and that costs nothing.
Rev Stephen Davis, Anglican Church Finley.
