From the Pastor
He Hears
On Saturday, September 12th, Memorial Lutheran Church will host a noon time prayer vigil as a part of the National Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to remember the victims of abortion. 
When asked the questions of why should we pray or take time to remember, Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, President of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, responds with these words: "Why pray? Why take time to remember? Because our Lord has promised us that He hears and answers prayers! When we pray for the protection of these little children, when we ask Him to send comfort and peace to mothers whose choice to abort their children haunts them, when we tell Him of our desire to care for moms and babies in our midst, and when we beg Him to help us speak for life, He hears. And He does not let our prayers go unanswered."
