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.

Tuesday, Nov. 2 American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month  Give thanks for the gifts and witness of American Indian and Alaska Native members of the ELCA, and pray for the American Indian and Alaska Native Lutheran Association and for native congregations and ministries—ministries grounded in reconciliation and the building up of people of all backgrounds, tribes, regions, communities and congregations.
