Devotions and Prayers

“So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”
Romans 14:19

If you are an ordained minister or a commissioned worker in the LCMS Northern Illinois District and would like to submit a devotion, you may contact Sue Green.

Weekly prayers:

August 18 – May the Lord bless the efforts of our congregations who are holding end of the summer/back to school festivals as outreach events to meet and better engage with the people in their community. May these events be a bridge to building relationships, as well as an open door for prayer and ministry as we seek to serve others.
