Prayer Ventures for September 19, 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.
Tuesday, Sept. 19: Tormented and sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph eventually embraced his brothers with forgiveness and kindness. Pray to be filled with the same spirit of forgiveness and compassion that filled Joseph, that there be no room in us for hatred, vengeance or rejection of people we feel have harmed or offended us.
