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, Oct. 10: Give thanks for our elders. Pray for openness to understanding the changing needs and dynamics of adults as they age. Pray for wisdom on how to best accompany and care for elders in ways that safeguard their dignity, recognize and utilize their gifts in the church and communities, encourage their journey of faith and attend to their physical, spiritual, intellectual and social needs.
