Prayer of the Day:

God of compassion, you have opened the way for us and brought us to yourself. Pour your love in to our hearts,
that, overflowing with joy, we may freely share the blessings of your realm and faithfully proclaim the good news
of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Gospel:

Matthew 9:35-10:8

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good
news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion
for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to
his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to
send out labourers into his harvest. ’Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority
over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness. These are the names of
the twelve apostles: first, Simon, also known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and
his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax-collector; James son of Alphaeus,
and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him. These twelve Jesus
sent out with the following instructions: ‘Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans,
but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news, “The kingdom
of heaven has come near. ”Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received
without payment; give without payment.
