LWML 2021 GivingTuesday: September to Remember
This year, we focus on those “Shining Lights” in our lives that share Jesus’ truth in love through service to others. Watch for daily posts the first two weeks of September as we share stories of those who have been “Shining Lights” in our lives. We encourage you to share a story of one of your “Shining Lights” on Facebook, donate toward the LWML Mission Goal in honor of that special someone, and pray for our mission grants. Learn more about LWML below.
Who has been your shining light?
This September we remember those who reflect Christ's light in our lives.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

A Mission Grant Prayer
Heavenly Father, we give You thanks today for the innumerable physical, spiritual, and emotional blessings You daily shower upon us. Lead us, through the working of Your Holy Spirit, to return a part of these gifts to You as our joyful response to Your great love for us that is so evident in the greatest gift You gave us, the gift of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Bless these mission grant recipients, along with my life of Christian stewardship, so that Your kingdom on earth, as well as in heaven, may continue to grow. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
