Prayer Ventures for August 17
Every day, Living Lutheran offers a prayer for the day from the ELCA resource Prayer Ventures, which can be downloaded here. These petitions are offered as a guide for your own prayer life as together we pray for the needs of the world and give thanks for the ministries of our church.
Wednesday, Aug. 17: Refugees and immigrants in the world continue to seek safe, welcoming communities in which to live, work, form new relationships and become self-sufficient. We pray God will safeguard their journeys and provoke us to be active in welcoming, supporting and advocating for all who are displaced by war, national instability, poverty or persecution.
