40 days of Lenten Prayer guide

In the 40 days of this Lenten season, you are invited to join with many in the Lutheran Church of Australia and the Lutheran Church of New Zealand to pray for their  partners in mission.

Prayer is a vital part of mission, of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those who don’t yet know him.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:3-6
The LCA has two arms reaching out across the borders of our countries to share Jesus’ love – LCA International Mission and Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS).
LCA International Mission has the responsibility for mission and evangelism, so that, through the work of the Holy Spirit and in partnership with others, we can bring the life-changing news of the gospel to people overseas and cross-culturally in our own countries.
Through LCA International Mission you are enabling Jesus’ love to come to life in the lives of many people across the borders of our countries and particularly in our near-neighbour countries in South East Asia and the Pacific.
