Dear Lucy Leader … Planning a Prayer Event

Dear Lucy Leader,

Prayer is a very important part of a Christian’s life. I would like to plan an event for my group that centers around prayer. Do you have any ideas to help with that?

Dear Prayerful Pam,

It is wonderful for you to want to plan an event that centers around prayer. What a special way for your group to be connected with Jesus and with each other!

LWML does have resources that are written especially to engage your group in  prayer. The 2021 Prayer Service, written by past LWML Pastoral Counselor Rev. Robert Mundahl, is “He Prayed with Them,” based on Acts 20:36b. This can be found at A guide to organizing a prayer walk can be found at Walking in Prayer: Organizing a Prayer Walk — Lutheran Women's Missionary League (

LWML has an abundance of other resources that will greatly enrich your activities. Devotions, Bible studies, litanies, and more can be found at LWML Resources on Prayer — Lutheran Women's Missionary League.

May God bless you and your group!  Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18).
