2022 LWML Prayer Service

Lord, Teach us to Pray,” based on Luke 11:1

by Rev. Robert Grimm


Prayer may be simple or complex — silent or corporate — memorized or free-flowing from our heart. It is a conversation with God and shows our love for our heavenly Father.

The 2022 Prayer Service, based on Luke 11:1, “Lord, Teach us to Pray,” looks at various forms of prayer used frequently by believers as we seek to honor Christ, the Lord of the Church, with our prayers.

How to use the Prayer Service

The 2022 LWML Prayer Service is designed to be used at any time by large or small groups. It is an abbreviated worship service with eight sections, each on a different type of prayer. Each section includes Scripture readings, ponderings, a hymn, and time for prayer. This Prayer Service is copyrighted by the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. Use outside of LWML events, requires permission from the LWML and other copyright holders.

The 2021 Prayer Service was written by past LWML Pastoral Counselor, Pastor Robert Mundahl (MN). 

We are encouraged in Scripture to be people of prayer, and prayer marks us as children of the heavenly Father. He has promised to hear us and to answer our prayers. May the 2021 Prayer Service encourage and expand our life of prayer to include praying with others.

Rev. Robert L Mundahl recently retired after 40 years of service as a parish pastor in Missouri and Minnesota. Beginning as a Zone Pastoral Counselor in 1983, he concluded many years of service to the LWML as an LWML Pastoral Counselor in 2019. He was also an LCMS Minnesota South District Vice President and has volunteered as a hospital and a police chaplain. Pastor Mundahl writes, “I am enjoying worshipping again alongside my wife, Peg. God blessed us with two children and, at present, three grandchildren. The theme of this year’s Prayer Service is one in which I’m currently engaged — praying with everyone God places in my path. I am still ‘Serving the Lord with gladness!’"
