We talk about all sorts of life issues on Friends for Life. In this episode, we use this time to talk about taking these issues to our Lord in prayer.
Prayer is a gift that we have been given as people united to Christ. Special guest Renee Gibbs joins the show to talk about the where, when, and how of praying for life issues as part of a Christian’s daily practice of prayer. Click here to download the PDF Pro-Life Prayer Calendar Resource.

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of that life when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life Ministry, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people, ones who are speaking up for and living out the sanctity of human life. Together we’ll explore life issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
