    Pray for God's Guidance of LSI
  • Thank you so much for your prayers.  
    God's direction is essential to everything we do.

    Some suggested prayer items:
    1.  Thank God for guiding LSI to this day and for our recent ministry growth.
    2.  Thank God for blessing LSI with leaders who not only study science, but more importantly study Scripture.
    3.  Request God’s direction as we evaluate current programs and plan new ones.
    4.  Pray for additional volunteers to carry out a growing list of ministry tasks.
    5.  Ask our Lord to bless LSI with more authors to write classroom apologetics units and LSI Journal articles.
    6.  Pray for those who are enticed by evolution’s claim that there is no god.
