Prayer Ventures for May 12, 2017
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, May 12: We pray that all expressions and members of our church are mindful of the global refugee and migration crises and the injustices and conflicts that continue to grow in scope and complexity. Give thanks for the work of synods, congregations, agencies and global partners in sponsoring refugees, welcoming them, accompanying them, providing relief and advocating for them as they settle in our countries—compassionate work done in the name of Jesus Christ.
