Every Monday, Living Lutheran offers a week’s worth of prayers from the ELCA resource Prayer Ventures. These petitions – one for each day this week – are offered as a guide for your prayer life as together we pray for the needs of the world and give thanks for the ministries of our church.

Living Lutheran also engages in storytelling through videos and images – visit our photo gallery and videos. We also welcome your story ideas and photos. You can submit story tips and high-resolution images directly on this site – see the bottom of this page and click on “Submit idea/photo.”

A very special thanks to ELCA members and others for responding to surveys that have guided the creation of this new website and accompanying magazine.
