Father, we’re thankful for the immense variety of sounds that fill our day such as voices, machinery, music, prayer, wildlife, insects, and so much more. Those we usually take for granted are blessings You give that bring joy and gladness to our lives. We pray for our brothers and sisters who are hearing impaired and thank you for the aids and support given to them through various ministries and organizations. There is no greater “sound of joy or gladness” than that of hearing the voice of one(s) who surrenders his or her life and receives glorious forgiveness. Help us to be faithful workers in the harvest so that we can rejoice in the victorious sounds of the spiritual harvest of the souls of men and women, boys and girls. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
