MMR - Monthly Missionary Reading May 9, 1908—An Appeal for Missions

The last days of probation are passing into eternity. The great day of the Lord is soon to open upon us. We should now use every ability we possess to arouse our people. {MMR May 9, 1908, par.2}

God calls for men to give the message of warning to the world that is asleep, dead in trespasses and sins. He calls for free-will offerings from those whose hearts are in the work, who have a burden for souls, that they shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Satan is playing the game of life for the souls of men. He is seeking to secure means, that he may bind it up, so that it shall not be used to advance the missionary enterprises. Shall we be ignorant of his devices? Shall we allow him to stupefy our senses, so that we shall not discern the needs of this time? {MMR May 9, 1908, par.3}

Satan does not let up. He is out there, lulling people to sleep, and all the while he is securing means from us, binding them up, that these means would not go to advance our missionary enterprises. The last days of probation are passing away and the great day of the Lord is right upon us. If you have a burden for souls, return unto God a free-will offering, that you would not perish, but have everlasting life.

Our Father, God Almighty,

We thank You once again for giving us this privilege to be able to return unto You that which You require of us and that which is Yours. You have blessed us with means and provided for our earthly needs. You have given us the strength to labor, and as we continue in Your Sabbath rest, we pray that no one is lulled to sleep. Bless our tithes and offerings that it may go towards delivering Your message to all who are dead in trespasses and sins, that they may be saved and not perish, but have everlasting life. We thank You and praise You for all the heavenly blessings that You have bestowed upon us. We thank You for hearing and answering our prayers and for giving us the victory over sin through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. This is our prayer, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
