And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent (John 17:3).

This is the essence of Jesus’ prayer throughout all of His earthly ministry, and it is the prayer that He still prays to His Father today. His desire is for all people to know God and Himself so that all may have eternal life. For decades, the LWML has joined Jesus in this prayer, praying for the world to hear the Good News of Jesus crucified and risen for the life of the world. Gifts of Love is an opportunity to ensure that such a prayer will continue to be uttered for decades to come, and that we also have the tools and resources to point people to Christ through His Word, in acts of mercy, and in grace given on His account. You know what it means to be confident about eternal life. Join us, and Jesus, in praying for the world, that all may know God and the One He has sent, and then, as you are able, consider how you may be able to join in supporting the LWML to remain steadfast in that prayer until our Lord’s return in glory.
