Prayers for March

The synod encourages congregations to continue praying during Sunday worship for the renewal of the church by praying for congregations of the Southeastern Iowa Synod, other synods, and people throughout the world.

March 1

Second Sunday in Lent As followers of Christ, we pray for a growing understanding of what it means to deny ourselves, take up the cross and follow in today’s world.

March 8

Third Sunday in Lent In our prayers, we ask for courage and faith to proclaim the saving work of God revealed in weakness, humiliation and death on the cross.

March 15

Fourth Sunday in Lent We pray that we will be led by the light of Christ in this world, from hopelessness to hope, from death to life eternal.

March 22

Fifth Sunday in Lent We pray that in the troubling death of Jesus we may see the very real love and promises of God.

March 29

Passion/Palm Sunday On this day we remember in our prayers the vulnerability and humility of Jesus, leading to his death for our sake – the world’s sake.

We also pray for…

Pr. Maureen Howard and her family as they grieve the death of Maureen’s mother, Clara Mulcox.

Sarah Quigley’s mother Karen who has recently passed.
