As the 2016 LCMS Youth Gathering gets underway tonight, we join brothers and sisters across the country in prayer for our young people, their adult leaders, Gathering planners and volunteers. You can post your prayers for the Gathering on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtags #NYG2016 and #thisisMYchurch. Tonight, when participants arrive at the Superdome, your messages will appear on ribbon boards around the dome. Participants will be able to see your prayers and know they are loved, encouraged, and supported by the Church.
Here are a few of the prayers we’ve seen so far:
