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, Sept. 5 Labor Day  On this day we recognize and pray for the work people do to sustain their families and the service they do to benefit their communities and society.
