LCMC Invites All to Participate in Three Days of Prayer

markEvery congregation, member and pastor is being invited to set aside some time each day of January 8, 9 and 10, 2013 for prayer.  

Our attitude toward prayer has often been characterized by saying, “well, all we can do now is pray!”. 

Prayer is not the hopeless act of desperation.  Prayer is a gift that God has given to us as a means to approach the throne of grace with confidence—like that of a child coming to her parents sharing concerns, victories, defeats and every part of life.  It is an opportunity to express the deepest heartache and the greatest joy.  Prayer is a conversation between the Creator and the created…and the conversation began with God, for us, in Christ Jesus.

Organize these three days of prayer any way that seems good to you.  Some of our congregations will put together a prayer vigil—a person signing up to pray in 30 minute intervals for example—for all three days, or a few hours each day; some will offer a prayer service at a set hour each of the three days, some will simply ask each person to spend some time each day in prayer…whatever works best in your congregation is the right way to go.

    First Lutheran Church in Washburn, ND is accepting the invite and are targeting our youth along with the entire congregation. We will serve a meal at noon and have time for prayer using the 3 days theme. We will put up large banners saying THREE DAYS OF PRAYER and then giving info. Time, and an overview of each day. If nyone has ideas please pass those on to me. Because our school kids have only a half hour, (the school is one block away) we will pray in our dining room, but I a inviting those who have more time to go up to the church. The church will have voltive cads in the window. Help me to make this a success. Thank you Judy
