Christian Life

The fall Women’s Retreat is set for September 17-18 at Good Shepherd Lutheran in Owatonna. We will be studying God’s Quilt of Comfort; Wrapping up in the Psalms during this one-day retreat on Saturday with optional servant event and fellowship activities offered Friday evening.

Registration and hotel details will be released later this summer. Updates will be here on our website and our Facebook page.

Make it a girl’s weekend and invite your girlfriends and relatives to join you for this relaxing time away in the Word. Bring your granddaughter, pastor’s wife, or neighbor; all who attend will find comfort and inspiration in the Psalms.


2021 Prayer Service


The 2021 Prayer Service, written by past LWML Pastoral Counselor Rev. Robert Mundahl, is "He Prayed with Them," based on Acts 20:36b.

When was the last time you prayed with someone?

Not for someone, but with someone?

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.

This free downloadable Prayer Service will be available in January for use in 2021 programming.


About the Author

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!’”


2020 Prayer Service

The 2020 Prayer Service, written by LCMS Florida-Georgia District President Rev. Dr. Gregory S. Walton, is "Living in Love, Bearing Fruit."

Christians are saved to serve. We are chosen and called to bear fruit for Jesus. We do this as we live in His love, not only in our home or church, but also in the world, where it is often more difficult to love others. We are empowered by the love that Jesus showed us in His sacrificial death on the Cross so that we would have life. Now we are blessed to live in His love, bearing much fruit for His sake. May this prayer service help us take time to reflect on His love for us, our love for Him, and how the fruit we bear is a result of living in His love.
