TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota received just enough rain in the past week to keep drought conditions from further deteriorating.
 
     The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 82 percent of the state in some stage of drought, unchanged from last week. Most of central and western North Dakota remains in extreme or exceptional drought, the two worst categories.
 
     The Drought Monitor says there was a small area of improvement to extreme drought in the south central part of the state, but that abnormally dry conditions expanded in eastern North Dakota.
 
     Gov. Doug Burgum earlier this week asked President Donald Trump for a disaster declaration, saying the state is "the epicenter of drought for the nation."

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Agriculture Department is asking North Dakota farmers to report any suspected crop damage caused by the herbicide dicamba.
 
     Dicamba kills broad-leafed weeds but also can damage or kill legumes. This year was the first that any dicamba products were registered for use on post-plant soybeans.
 
     Whether herbicide drift is causing damage to soybean crops has been a topic in many states including both Dakotas this summer.
 
     North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says his agency wants to quantify the number of potential damage reports and impacted acres through the survey . He says the information that's gathered won't be used for any enforcement actions.
