Pray the Litany through Lent — an updated printable version.

Thanks to a BJS reader for preparing a “pamphlet” form of the Litany previously published on this blog.

You can download the Litany in pamphlet form here; print it double-sided to one 8.5×11 sheet you can fold in the middle to have a pamphlet. If you have a double-sided printer and this prints the second side backwards, print this version.

The Reporter’s posting of this request included links to the Litany from LSB and a version with music from the LSB Altar Book.


We previously posted Pastor Harrison’s call for all in the LCMS to pray the Litany during Lent here

A bulletin insert (feel free to modify or improve!):

LCMS President Pastor Matthew Harrison asks for members of LCMS churches to pray the litany daily during Lent as a way to help improve our devotion times. His wording: “Left to ourselves, bereft of texts as the foundation of our prayers, we are often left praying “Dear God, give me a mini-bike,” as I was wont to pray as a 12 year old – and am prone to pray even today! … The fulsome petitions of the Litany take us out of ourselves, to pray for the church, pastors and teachers, our enemies, women with children, the poor, the imprisoned and much much more.” The Litany is found on page 288 of The Lutheran Hymnal, page 1310 of Treasury of Daily Prayer, or more information about this can be found online at

Be sure to catch the updated post with Pastor Harrison’s video.


About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

  1. Wonderful video from the Rev. Harrison. I’m among the many praying the Litany daily during Lent at Harrison’s suggestion.

    How heartening it is to have a Synodical President who acts pastorally toward me and all those in the Missouri Synod. He encourages me to be in prayer even as he prays for me.
