LCMS Kansas District Prayer Campaign: “Together We Pray”
Post date: Sep 09, 2020 1:59:10 AM
Take a minute or two each day to join your fellow Kansans in prayer, with the confidence that He will hear us!
If you’re on Facebook, you can find the prayers on the Kansas District page (@kslcms).

The pandemic has made social distancing and going it alone the new normal. Here’s an opportunity to buck that trend. On September 1, the Kansas District is kicking off a 90-day prayer campaign, “Together We Pray,” which will include daily scripture verses and prayers through November 29, the first Sunday in Advent.
September 1, 2020 - November 29, 2020

A message from Rev. Justin Panzer, President, LCMS Kansas District...
To the Saints of the Kansas District,
Last spring, our life together in Christ suffered a major disruption due to the coronavirus. Many congregations moved services and other activities entirely online under “Safer at Home” orders, while other churches opted for outdoor venues and tiny attendance caps. Our schools became virtual, as well.
We’ve made some progress since then, but we’re not out of the woods yet. Social distancing remains in force, preventing us from being together in ways we once took for granted. We continue to struggle not only with isolation but with unemployment, civil tensions, uncertainty, and fear.
But we have reason to hope. As Paul writes in Romans 8:38-39, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Our good and gracious God has promised to help us, saying, “Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me” (Psalm 50:15).
Calling for God’s help is something we can do TOGETHER. As our fight against the pandemic continues, I invite you to join your fellow believers in your own congregation and throughout Kansas and beyond in our 90-day prayer campaign, “Together We Pray.”
We’ll be praying from September 1 – November 29, the first Sunday in Advent. Take a minute or two each day to pray the prayers in this booklet and reflect on the corresponding verses. You can find a digital copy of the prayers on our website, kslcms.org. You can also find daily shareable verses and prayers on our Facebook page (@kslcms).
We hope these shared prayers will edify, strengthen and encourage the body of Christ here in Kansas as well as others who need God’s wisdom and encouragement in these challenging times.
Be strong, Church!
In the service of Christ,
Rev. Justin Panzer
President, LCMS Kansas District
