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.

Wednesday, July 6 Give thanks to God for deacons, our siblings in Christ who serve as ministers of word and service. Pray for their ministries in congregations, synods, social ministry organizations, chaplaincy ministries, seminaries, colleges, universities and ELCA Global Mission—wherever their diverse gifts are needed in our church and society.
