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, Aug. 23 “How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1). It is human nature to notice how we are different from one another. We pray for the courage to trust in the new selves we receive in Christ and for the wisdom to recognize the blessings of living in unity.
