Prayer Shawls – If you or anyone you know needs a prayer shawl please contact Mary Otte, Judy Larrieu, or Susan Thomas.
Due to a lack of participation by other women of the congregation, LWML will not be meeting again for the foreseeable future.
Attention young women ages 18-65 we want to hear from you!
What is LWML?
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is an official auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. For over 77 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
Every confirmed woman, who is a member of Apostles congregation, is eligible to become a member of the LWML. All you need is a love for others, a desire to share the Gospel message, and a heart to serve. Unfortunately, the LWML is not currently active at Apostles. If you are between the ages of 18 – 65 and interested in reactivating LWML please contact either Pastor Byars or Pastor Ramon.
“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” Luke 23:46b The last words spoken by Jesus before He died on the cross were “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46b). Faith, trust, assurance, and victory were in these words. Jesus’ words very well could be our morning prayer before we begin the day, and they could be our evening prayer before we turn out the light. We also hope that these words would be the last prayer we whisper before our eyes close in death. This is certainly a costly prayer. When we say the words of this prayer we are giving up on ourselves and putting ourselves in the hands of our heavenly Father. Blessed are the people who by the grace of God dare to commit themselves into the Father’s hands. To rest in His hands is to be in God’s care. He is concerned about each of us. After all, He is our Father. Jesus has written our names in the palms of His hands.
Dear Father, Your Son committed His Spirit into Your hands from the cross on Calvary. Into Your hands I commit my spirit today. In His holy name I pray. Amen.
