About Lutheran Prayers...

Lutheran Prayers is a collection of Intercessory Prayers that are used as Prayers of the Church or Prayers of Intercession by my home church, Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in West Carrollon, Ohio. Grace Lutheran is a member of the North American Lutheran Church and Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ.

The prayers are categorized by prayer topic so the reader can quickly find prayers according to his/her personal needs. The prayers are of a conservative viewpoint and reflect a liturgical flavor of the Lutheran Church.

It is my hope and prayer that these prayers will be used to edify your personal relationship with Jesus Christ and be a source of effective intercessory prayers for your church and those in your life. Please feel free to comment on how these prayers have been a blessing to you.

My Prayer

Lord, there are times I need to remind myself that it is You that I need to be living for. Each day I am confronted with the sins of the world, sins that often take root in my life and cause me to stumble along life's path. I praise you Jesus that through faith You continuously bestow grace and forgiveness upon me for my sins and sinful nature. Bless me and my petitions before You that they may keep my heart and spirit in tune with Your Word and that I may be a faithful witness to others. Amen.
