Let us pray

Gather, the magazine of Women of the ELCA, offers its three-session summer Bible studies for free. This summer Gather’s three-part Bible study, “Let us pray,” by Anna Madsen explores what happens when we pray. Is there right or wrong way to pray? Do we pray for God’s benefit or our own?

Gather is published 10 times a year with combined issues in January/February and July/August. A print subscription is $19.95 a year. Digital access (computer, iPad, Android) is free to print subscribers. For more information, or to subscribe by phone, call 1-844-409-0576.
