Immanuel Lutheran Church welcomes the community!
Three Days of Prayer –
January 2-4, 2018 an International LCMC Annual Event
Immanuel Lutheran is a member of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ. LCMC is an association of Congregations what are free in Christ, accountable to one another, rooted in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. An association is a group connected by a common cause. The common cause of our association is the mission focus of making disciples as defined by the great commission. LCMC congregations have begun a yearly tradition of focused Prayer at a scheduled time for the obedience to faith in and of the congregations of the association.
We will gather for congregational prayer from 6 to 7 PM each of the three evening in the Sanctuary. We draw closer to God praying together on January 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
Day One: January 2 -Tuesday
This is a day focused on confession. We have made our lives, our relationships—and even the church—in our own image. We confess that the church belongs to Jesus and not to us. We gather to lay down our pride, our sin and our agenda and ask the Lord of the church for forgiveness, which He gives freely and with mercy.
Day Two: January 3 – Wednesday
This is a day of petition. Pray for your congregation, for the pastor, for the leaders, for those who carry out ministries, for the Sunday School teachers, for the Confirmation leaders, for those leading adult Bible studies and for those leading small groups. Pray for those in hospital and nursing home ministries. Pray for all those connected to your church that they might know God’s redeeming love for all in Christ.
Day Three: January 4 – Thursday
This is a day for vision. Pray that the Holy Spirit will again move through the hearts and minds of leaders and pastors that God’s vision for His church might be revealed and fulfilled. This is a time of prayer for renewal, revival and encouragement. Pray for God’s vision.
