2017 LWML Prayer Service
Lutheran Women's Missionary League Celebrating 75 Years of Commending Christ From One Generation to Another

One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts (Psalm 145).

by Rev. Dr. Steve Turner


We are gathered here today as women and men of the church who are in our generation to be witnesses of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of us lament “the generation gap” that seems to be growing with the acceleration of changes in our culture. There are times when we long for the “good old days.”  Our worship for today is to remind us that God continues to work in our days.  That He is the God of all generations!
