The Congregation at Prayer is a weekly devotional and catechetical guide for use in the home, the congregation, and the Lutheran school. The Congregation at Prayer unites the congregation around the same sections of the Word of God and catechism, and gives a common language for prayer and meditation upon the Scriptures. It is prepared by the pastor each week and distributed in the Sunday bulletin. It lives from the themes established on each Sunday of the church year and it looks forward to the coming Sunday. It helps families and individual Christians in prayer, reading the Scriptures, and learning the catechism at home. It teaches the congregation to use the Bible, catechism, and hymnal as daily devotional companions for the Christian faith and life. It is a useful tool in the pastor’s ongoing catechesis of the congregation, and is the recommended devotional guide for every board or committee of the congregation.
