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.

Sunday, Aug. 20 We pray that our Lutheran theology, traditions and practices will not present obstacles for our neighbors and people from other faith traditions.
