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.
Transfiguration of Our Lord
O Lord most holy, as we stand with Moses and Elijah at the transfiguration of Jesus, help us to see the mysteries of faith as your adopted children, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
First Sunday in Lent
Almighty God, we give you thanks for the witness of Christians in Russia. Grant them renewal and strength as they stand in faith in difficult situations.
Second Sunday in Lent
Most merciful God, we give you thanks for the gifts of water and Sprit. We lift up all of our newly baptized brothers and sisters.
Third Sunday in Lent
Lord God, we praise you for the many members of your body. We are thankful for those who give their testimony, like the Samaritan woman, which leads many others to faith.
Fourth Sunday in Lent
Loving God, bless the churches of Ghana, Guatemala and Haiti and their ministries among children, the sick and the elderly.
