At Prairie Lutheran, we focus on the five Holy Habits. These Biblical habits have been practiced by God’s people for generations. What are they? The five habits are: Worship, Learning, Serving, Giving and Prayer. They are life changing, life giving and life-long practices that ground you in God’s grace. And the good news is that you can start incorporating them into your life at any age.
Worship is embracing the embrace of God. Weekly worship with others is essential for the soul. In corporate worship you encounter the living Christ as he shows up in Word and Sacraments. At Prairie Lutheran we offer contemporary worship, designed to connect people to a Holy God that comes near through thematic and seasonal worship series. Here are some resources to enliven your worship life:
Learning never ends. It is like an refreshing fountain of fresh water. In Psalm1:3, David extols that learning God’s word “is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.” At Prairie Lutheran we encourage people of all ages to tap into the life giving waters of Scripture. Here are some resources:
God created us to serve one another. When asked what are the two greatest commandments Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God and Love your neighbor as yourself.' Matthew 22:37-39. At Prairie Lutheran we are committed to encourage and equip people to serve. Through ministry opportunities sponsored by Prairie Lutheran and the myriad of ministries people do in their daily lives, we are making a world of difference.

Everything we have comes from God, who is perfectly sufficient for all our needs. What a blessing we have, that we can honor His generosity and mercy in our lives by giving in return. If you would like to give to the ministries at Prairie Lutheran Church, please contact the church office to receive a Giving packet which talks about our Operating Fund and our Capital Mission Campaign. Please read our Cheerful Giver newsletter that highlights the gracious giving by our congregation.

Prayer is our mother tongue. It is the most natural and most powerful way of communicating. It has been said, “When we work, we work. But when we pray, God works.” At Prairie Lutheran we seek to grow in our prayer language and connect to its power. Here are some resources available to you:
Prayer Request. If you have a prayer request, click here to fill out a prayer request form and we will pass your concern on to our Prayer Chain and Praying Sisters. The Prayer Chain is a team of members who lift up concerns to God. You can also email your requests to the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Prayer. We encourage you to take time each day to talk with God in prayer. Whether it's a 5-second "Good morning God, please be with me today" or a 20-minute session of prayer on your knees, God loves hearing from you!
Daily Texts. The Daily Texts is a devotional that millions of Christians have found helpful in creating a daily prayer routine. Copies are available at the Info Desk. You can also learn more at www.dailytext.com
