The 2019 Prayer Service, written by past LCMS Rocky Mountain District President Rev. Allen D. Anderson, is centered around the acronym for “CARES” and based on Psalm 94:17–19: If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence. When I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up. When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
The 2019 Prayer Service is now available as a free download.

LWML Welcome Packet
Do you already have an LWML group in your congregation? It's okay to have multiple groups! Groups can be set up to accommodate those who prefer to meet or hold events in the evening, daytime, on weekends, or even via the Internet. Some groups are organized around special interests, such as a mom's group, quilting group, or service events. Think of the possibilities to engage more women in your congregation! The time is now!
We hope that the Welcome Packet will be a great resource for you as you establish new LWML groups. You will find it to be user-friendly as it directs leaders of new LWML groups to connect with LWML district presidents for support in getting started. Download the packet for free!
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. (Romans 12:12)
Sing a New Song!
"Praise, Love, Serve"
(Based on LWML Pledge)
Our God and Father, made the earth, And when we went astray,
Our God, the Son, descended here To take our sins away.
With His own blood He bought us. He broke the bonds of sin.
Then God the Spirit came into Our hearts to dwell within.
In gratitude we pledge ourselves, To Him with all we have.
Our hands will work; our voices sing; Our lips proclaim His love.
His errands we’ll do gladly; His Gospel we’ll defend;
Our silver and our gold we’ll use — His Kingdom to extend.
Wherever He has need of us, We will His call obey.
Whenever He calls out to us, We’ll answer right away.
His will is ours that lost souls Will turn away from sin
And come to have eternal life Through fellowship with Him.
Pledge: Rev. Harry Fricke, 1955
