Morning Prayer for Thursday, 29 October 2020

Welcome to morning prayer. In the Ecumenical Prayer Cycle, we pray this week with the people and churches of Canada and the United States of America. This week many of our traditions also commemorate Reformation Day.

In a time of physical distancing, this order of prayer prepared by the Lutheran World Federation for Reformation Day focuses on baptism, which reconciles us to God and all creation. By water and Word, the one Spirit unites us through time and space into one body of Christ, and enlightens us with one hope to live our vocation in trust and courage.
