Churchwide Assembly

Six Weeks of Prayer | Week 1

O God, you open the hearts of your faithful people by sending into us the light of the Holy Spirit. Direct the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America by the light of that Spirit, as this church prepares to gather in assembly, that we might have a right judgment in all things and rejoice at all times in your peace;
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

(or alternate response according to the congregation’s practice.)
