Daily Prayer

These suggestions for daily prayer are provided to encourage and to help you every day to praise God and to pray for yourself, for the whole Church, and for the world.

The lessons are from the daily lectionary in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) which complement the lessons of the nearest Sunday.The prayers of the day are from the Lutheran, Episcopal, and Roman rites and follow a pattern The Rev. Dr. Philip H. Pfatteicher has developed over many years and which is now in use at the weekday Eucharist at First Lutheran Church.
