Of course you can pray anywhere and at any time. But
sometimes it is comforting to have a special place to speak
to God and ask for His guidance, intercession or for a favor.
Such a place has been created within our sanctuary.
You may have noticed that a stand of candles has been
added, also a pair of kneelers and a crucifix. This little
corner of our sanctuary has been created to provide a place
of solitude – a place to pray. You may ask – Why
the candles? Why the kneelers? Well sometimes when we pray,
we are humbled and kneelers are appropriate. The candles can
represent a visual expression of our individual prayer, which
at times can be most meaningful to us. So, our special place
to pray provides for those needs.
If you wish to pray, light a candle, or kneel before Our
Lord, you can do so at anytime when the church facilities are
open. We pray for you and with you.
United in Faith Lutheran Church, 6525 W. Irving Park Rd.,
Chicago, invites all to come to our new Community Prayer
Session. The group will meet the first Thursday of each month
at 7:00 p.m.
Prayer is very personal. In today’s world, many
things can be lifted up in prayer. Personal and family
healing of mind, spirit and body, is at the top of the list.
Prayer can also include peace in the world, among the nations
and in our own family. Words of thanksgiving for prayers
answered can be offered. We can include loved ones who are
lonely. We can pray for our military personnel for safety
while away from us. Whatever you want to lift up in prayer,
you will be welcome to join us.
