Lord Jesus, Savior of the Nations …
Lord of the Church, King of kings, and Lord of lords!
You have promised to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask. Today I come humbly to your throne of grace and ask you to fulfill that promise among us. Pour out your Holy Spirit on us as we celebrate your gifts to the church–men and women who are willing to prepare for public ministry. Remind us of the blessing that MLC is to our synod. Enable us here at MLC to carry out our mission of training a corps of Christian witnesses who meet the ministry needs of WELS.
Confident that you hear and answer our prayers I place all our needs in your hands. Amen.
~ Pastor Michael Otterstatter – VP for Mission Advancement at MLC
