CANADA – In the lead-up to Lutheran Church–Canada’s (LCC) 11th synodical convention, LCC is encouraging its members to pray for delegates and the important work they will undertake this October in Kitchener, Ontario.

To that end, LCC is releasing a series of prayers that you and your congregation are encouraged to use in advance of the synodical convention. Prayer topics include the work that delegates will be called to do, safe travel for all involved, and the upcoming elections.

Congregations are also invited to include a short bulletin announcement encouraging members to pray for the convention. The insert follows:

– Wisdom in all decisions
– Respect in discussion
– Focus to all participants on “Christ Alone”
– Safe travel for convention participants
– Joy and encouragement through worship and fellowship
– Unity in purpose and vision for LCC
