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, July 19 Give thanks for leaders, teachers and other brothers and sisters in Christ who help us better understand God’s will, guide us in studying Scripture, strengthen our faith and wisdom, and encourage us to bear joyful witness to God’s love and mercy.
