LCMC Three Days of Prayer

You’re invited to join together with other congregations throughout Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC)January 1-3 for our 7th Annual Three Days of Prayer! Beginning January 1, we’re kicking off another new year with Three Days of Prayer. The themes for each of the three days are as follows:

  • Tuesday, January 1: 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.
  • Wednesday, January 2: 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.
  • Thursday, January 3: 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.

You may structure this time of prayer in any way that makes sense to you. Simply set aside some time during each of the three days to pray. If you’d like to receive a notification reflecting on the themes during each of the three days, be sure to download our app and opt-in for “Three Days of Prayer” notifications. Let’s come together as an association and congregation to lift one another up in prayer from January 1-3!
