Of course you can pray anywhere and at any time. But
sometimes it is comforting to have a special place to speak to
God and ask for His guidance, intercession or for a favor. Such
a place has been created within our sanctuary.
You may have noticed that a stand of candles has been added,
also a pair of kneelers and a crucifix. This little corner of
our sanctuary has been created to provide a place of solitude
– a place to pray. You may ask – Why the candles?
Why the kneelers? Well sometimes when we pray, we are humbled
and kneelers are appropriate. The candles can represent a
visual expression of our individual prayer, which at times can
be most meaningful to us. So, our special place to pray
provides for those needs.
If you wish to pray, light a candle, or kneel before Our
Lord, you can do so at anytime when the church facilities are
open. We pray for you and with you.
United in Faith Lutheran Church, 6525 W. Irving Park Rd.,
Chicago, invites all to come to our new Community Prayer
Session. The group will meet the second Thursday of each month

Prayer is very personal. In today’s world, many things
can be lifted up in prayer. Personal and family healing of
mind, spirit and body, is at the top of the list. Prayer can
also include peace in the world, among the nations and in our
own family. Words of thanksgiving for prayers answered can be
offered. We can include loved ones who are lonely. We can pray
for our military personnel for safety while away from us.
Whatever you want to lift up in prayer, you will be welcome to
