We believe when addressing life issues it's important not only to provide teaching and education material, but resources which can help us as a church community practically minister to hurting people. For example, what sort of prayer could one use to pray with a couple who has had an abortion they now regret? How can we bring Christian comfort to someone as they face death? This page provides these sorts of resources which are taken and adapted from the Lutheran Church of Australia's Rites and Resources for Pastoral Care.
- With the dying
- During pregnancy
- After miscarriage or stillbirth
- After childbirth
- After an abortion
- Prayers for various situations
For more prayers on topics such as miscarriage; stillbirth/death shortly after birth; premature birth; those seeking to adopt; thanksgiving upon adoption; when a mother is considering abortion; for the comfort of one who has undergone an abortion; terminally ill; for the physically disabled, among others, visit the American Lutherans for Life website.
