It has been the practice in many congregations within our ministry area to lift up one another in prayer. In an effort to compile a prayer cycle resource combining the following prayer lists:

  • Ecumenical Prayer Cycle – resource from the World Council of Churches that helps us to pray for all of the countries around the world
  • Anglican-Lutheran Prayer Cycle – resource provided by the Anglican Church of Canada which prays for the wider Anglican and Lutheran communion
  • Ottawa Lutherans Prayer Cycle – resource provided locally with the leadership from Marianne Thornton to cover all areas of our ministries in the Ottawa Ministry Area

If there are more items that you wish to be placed on a prayer list, feel free to email the prayer requests to
