Prayer Ventures - June 2021
These petitions are offered as guides to prayer for the global, social and outreach ministries of the ELCA, as well as for the needs and circumstances of our neighbors, communities and world.
Thank you for your continued prayers for the life and mission of this church.
20 Pray that God’s power, presence and love will ease our fears and uncertainties, calm the storms in our lives and strengthen our faith so that we will be bold and tireless disciples who do God’s work in the world, share the gospel and serve our neighbor.
21 Remember in prayer fathers who strive to be loving, caring, wise and influential parents, including fathers who are new parents or single parents, who are deployed in the military or incarcerated, or who experience separation from family while traveling for their work.
22 Give thanks and praise for God’s great works and attention to our prayers, both when we are alone and when we gather as a community of faith.
23 Pray for the 300-plus health and human service organizations of the Lutheran Services in America alliance, which serve 6 million people every year across our country in response to God’s call to love our neighbors of all ages, needs and circumstances.
24 We acknowledge that it is not always easy to follow Christ, bear the gospel or do God’s work in the world. Give thanks that together, as siblings in Christ, we can turn to one another with our burdens and receive support and encouragement.
25 Pause today and take in the wonders of God’s creation. Give thanks for the joy, wonder and awesome complexity of nature and the universe, and ask God to help us be mindful, responsible and respectful stewards of creation.
26 Remember in prayer the leaders, voting members and others gathering online for the South Carolina Synod Assembly, that the Spirit will strengthen, guide and encourage them in choosing leaders, proclaiming the gospel, growing the church, serving our neighbor and doing God’s work in an ever-changing world.
