Lenten Journey: Prayer Candle

By Patra Mueller

As we traveled in Germany last summer and visited several beautiful cathedrals, there were often candles available to light and pray for individuals in need.

This is not a typical practice in the Lutheran church, but this week we ask that you think of one specific individual you would like to lift up in prayer. Take a moment to light a candle in your home and let the glow from the candle serve as a reminder that you are lifting up that person before God’s throne of grace asking God for His love and provision in their life.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people. 1 Timothy 2:1

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

You are also invited to join the Good Friday Prayer Vigil by signing up for a half hour prayer slot between 2:00 and 6:00 PM next Friday, March 29. You can pray at the church or from your home. Click Here for more details and to sign up.
