For 55 Years they met for Prayer


I do believe that by intercessory prayer, as Jesus himself has told us, the great power of God works in ways we cannot conceive.” Oswald Chambers. 

In 1963 a group of Lutherans met weekly for intercessory prayers, primarily for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. 

In 1966 that little group unanimously launched on a mission that would change all of their lives and the lives of countless others; the founding of the mission in Vicente Guerrero, Baja, CA, Mexico. (See Charla’s Children, chapter 14) 

During the ‘70s, our group grew in numbers and became very interdenominational and remains so. In answer to prayer, we saw tremendous miracles. God worked in ways beyond conception. 

In 2000 we moved to San Clemente and to our home in Laguna Woods, CA. We never missed a prayer meeting. The Petersons, Barnes, Schofields, Sanders, Sheltons, Knowltons, Smiths, and precious Pat Durkin was soon to follow. 

For over 55 years these intercessors continue to meet weekly for prayer.

We meet at the Pereau’s home, 2355 #3H Via Mariposa W., Laguna Woods, 92637. All are welcome; we have a prayer group dinner the first Friday of each month at the Lutheran Church of the Cross. Once again, all are invited. 

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face …” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
