Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for the gifts and talents you have given us. May we put them to good use to your glory. Amen.

Prayer Focus

Outreach Ministries


Respond by posting a prayer.

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
