Devotional Resources

The Institute of Lutheran theology not only provides programs to train pastors and teachers, but it also provides educational and devotional resources for individuals and congregations. These resources are provided free of charge and made available through our web page. Please subscribe to and use any of these resources.

The Word at Work Magazine

The Word at Work Magazine is the official magazine of the Institute of Lutheran Theology. Issued three times a year, it includes articles on Biblical, theological, and inspirational topics written by ILT's staff, faculty and alumni. This free magazine is found online, in print (with a free subscription) and is available to congregations for bulk ordering. 

Table Talk

Table Talk is a weekly devotional that provides writings for use as a bulletin insert for congregations and for use in family devotions. It follows the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) used by SOLA Publishing. ILT makes it available every week, free of charge, on our Resources page and by email subscription. Table Talk's message delivers God's devotion to you, his wayward people, through his Son Jesus Christ.


Chapel at the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT) provides the preaching of the Word of God and the prayers of the people during the weeks when classes are held. The local ILT staff and faculty gather for Chapel and its recording.  ILT makes the Chapel recording available on its website for your use in hearing the Word of God and the preaching of it—that is, the preaching of Jesus Christ, him crucified, and him alone.

Epaphras Prayer Letter

The Epaphras Prayer Letter encourages people to support the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT) through their prayers. The Apostle Paul named Epaphras, saying of him, "He is always wrestling in prayer for you..." (Col.4:12).  The letter comes out every week.  ILT makes it available on its website and through email subscription. Each letter contains an inspirational thought and several prayer concerns for you to pray in support of ILT and its mission—to raise up faithful preachers and teachers of Jesus Christ and him crucified.
