Let us pray for all people
The Bible teaches us to pray for all things at all times. Grace Lutheran believes in the power of prayer. We pray not only for our own needs or only for those people we know, but for all God’s people! For by the cross and resurrection of Jesus, the Grace of God appears to all.
When praying for others, we pray they come to know Jesus Christ as their savior, so they may receive the blessings God gives to those who believe in Him.
Jesus said: “I am the bread of life, whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never perish.” John 6:35
We pray for others according to their needs, commending all for whom we pray into the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord, trusting in His mercy. “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
If you are in need of prayer or someone you know is in need, please send your prayer requests to us by posting them on Pastor’s blog. WE WILL LIFT THEM UP TO THE LORD IN PRAYER.
How to pray
If you would like to pray to God, but are not sure how, Jesus teaches us to pray the Lord’s Prayer-Matthew 6:9-13.

We pray this prayer for you: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Amen.” Numbers 6:24-26
