Churchwide Assembly Prayer: Boldly Proclaim the Good News

By your word, eternal God, your creation sprang forth, and we were given the breath of life. By your word, eternal God, death is overcome, Christ is raised from the tomb, and we are given new life in the power of your Spirit. May we boldly proclaim this good news in our words and our deeds, rejoicing always in your powerful presence. Direct the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America by your Word, as this church prepares to gather in assembly.

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.
