Every day, Living Lutheran offers a prayer from the ELCA resource Prayer ventures, which can be downloaded here. These daily 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.
Monday, Aug. 23 Pray for our ELCA missionaries serving alongside companion churches and organizations in the Middle East and North Africa, including the Rev. Christie Manisto and Steven Saari (Egypt), the Rev. Carrie Ballenger (Israel/Palestine), and the Revs. Gabi and Meghan Aelabouni (Israel/Palestine).
