Adding a short special prayer to our daily devotions for a particular topic, issue, or situation of significance is appropriate. These special prayers will change monthly, so please check back weekly for each week's special prayer.
International Friendship Center– Jesus, friend of sinners, thank you for guiding the circumstances that led to a Lutheran church in Pakistan and an International Friendship Center connecting new Americans to your gospel here in the United States. Open our eyes to see the opportunities you have put in front of us so that we can spread your Word and help others. Amen.
Women’s Ministry Conference – Lord and Savior, you are the Living Stone on which the Church is built and thrives. Through this year’s Women’s Ministry Conference, help the attendees to grow in their faith as living stones built on you. Inspire, teach, and lead them as they find joy in serving you and others; and bless their time of fellowship and encouragement. Thank you for all the blessings you give through this conference and similar gatherings throughout our synod. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Indonesia – Lord of the Church, we thank you for all who share the gospel across cultures. We especially thank you for our brothers and sisters in the church of Gereja Lutheran Indonesia. We ask you to bless their outreach efforts and give success to the new publications they are developing to reach many ethnic groups in their country. Guide the leaders of Indonesia so that Gereja Lutheran may continue to freely worship and spread the good news of Jesus. We ask this trusting in your promise through Jesus, our Savior. Amen.
Synod convention– Heavenly Father, as the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod meets in convention this week, we thank you for the Christ-centered, Scripture-based fellowship we share. We thank you for the support of members throughout the country. We also thank you for the growing fellowship we enjoy around the world with our sister synods in the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference. We especially rejoice that we will be able to formally declare fellowship with The Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ – Kenya and The Christian Lutheran Evangelical Church in Taiwan. Bless and strengthen these fellowship ties. Guide President Mark Schroeder and all the leaders of our synod. Grant wisdom to the delegates as they make decisions for all of us. We ask this through Jesus, our living Lord. Amen.
