Pray for jus­tice

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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.
