Churchwide Assembly Prayer: As We Gather for Assembly

Let us pray for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and its members who gather this week in its Churchwide Assembly. Inspire the celebration of God’s varied works throughout the church. Instill your peace in the midst of the work you have called us to and the deliberations that will take place. Shape the work of the church according to your will for the whole world.

As the ELCA enters its final weeks before Churchwide Assembly in Milwaukee on August 5-10, 2019, we offer a prayer petition that congregations might consider using within their prayers.
