Prayer Ventures for August 26
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.
Friday, Aug. 26: In the midst of our country’s discussions and impassioned debates about reducing gun violence, we ask God’s forgiveness for our failures to keep human lives – God’s handiwork and gift – in the foreground. We plea for God’s help and wisdom in reaching self-sacrificing, life-valuing, effective answers – together.
