Prayer Retreats

 

Lutheran Liturgical Prayer Brotherhood retreats are opportunities to join with other Lutheran Christians and pray the liturgy. Retreats are characterized by several chanted prayer offices each day, including Morning Prayer (Lauds), Midday Prayer (Sext), Vespers, and Compline. Presentations on theological, liturgical, historical, and musical topics are given by theologians qualified in those fields. Time is allotted for personal prayer, discussion of practical-liturgical issues, Gemütlichkeit, conversation, mutual support, and field trips to theologically interesting local sites (bookstores, churches, church supply stores, etc).

THE LUTHERAN LITURGICAL PRAYER BROTHERHOOD is a voluntary group of confessional Lutheran Christians which encourages its members to pray, especially making use of the Psalms and Holy Scripture. We accept without reservation the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the written Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice, and all the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God. We strive to use the best of western Christian liturgy, prayers, and music—especially the ecclesiastical choral music known commonly as Gregorian Chant—as it has come down to us in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. We value an orderly discipline of prayer, frequent communion, and private confession. We pray for each other and meet together, as we are able, to pray and sing the liturgy.

Resources from previous retreats:

Voice recordings. (These are very large files in MP3.  With dial-up connections this could take a very long time.)  If you would like a CD of these recordings, please contact Michael N. Frese through the link at the bottom of the page.
