2018 LWML Prayer Service
Living as God's People
by Rev. Dr. Robert Roegner
The Prayer Service, written by 2013–2017 LWML Pastoral Counselor Rev. Dr. Robert Roegner, is based on 1 Peter 2:9–12.
Many factors come to mind when we think of who we are — our identity. In his first letter, Peter continually reminds his readers of their identity. Rather than focus on inane worldly details, he zeroes in on what’s most important: our standing in the eyes of God or our place in His kingdom.
Peter reminds his readers of who they were prior to being made part of God’s family, contrasting that non-status with the present reality of what God had made them. This was especially important for Peter’s readers as they compared themselves to the unbelievers around them, and as they fought to retain hope in what may have seemed like hopeless times.
The 2018 Prayer Service is not yet available. Expected availability in January 2018.
