of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

When I was a teenager, my brother and my father died within a few weeks of each other. Though the sun shone brightly that summer, my soul felt dark. Within 29 days, our family had been reduced from seven to five. Two chairs at the dinner table sat empty. Hopelessness...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, even in despair, help us to give thanks that you walk with us. Amen.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
