Dear Friends in Christ,
Greetings to you in the name of Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith!
With the Lenten season fully underway, LCMS President Matthew C. Harrison has invited us all to join him daily in praying the ancient Litany, a prayer used by Christians particularly in times of need.
“This is a time of need, both for our Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and for Christianity around the world,” Harrison says from the kneeler in his office in the video. You can view his video invitation here.
The Litany can be found on page 288 of Lutheran Service Book, or you can download it from the LCMS website here.
Please be sure to share the video with your congregation and staff, and encourage them to be in regular prayer during this Lenten season!
Rev. Jon D. Vieker,
Senior Assistant to the President
