LWF Communion Prayer for the Easter Season 2020

An LWF prayer guide for the 50 days of Easter,  continuing solidarity with churches and individuals around the world during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The daily compilation of a Psalmody, Bible text, meditation and prayer can be adapted to include singing, additional prayers or liturgical acts that are meaningful in the respective contexts. The Sunday meditations relate to the common theme of baptism.

The daily reflections on LWF’s social media channels and the full resource on the LWF website started with the Easter Sunday celebration and will continue until the festival of Pentecost. 

The guide refers to Martin Luther’s encouragement in his letter on A Simple Way to Pray:

“Never think that you are kneeling or standing alone, rather think that the whole of the Church…are standing there beside you and you are standing among them in a common, united petition which God cannot disdain. There we find God the Creator, God the Redeemer, God the Holy Spirit, that is, God who daily sanctifies us.”
