Jesus said to his parents, “[Know] ye not 
that I must be about my Father’s business?" - Luke 2:49 (KJV)

While reading about the prophet Anna in Luke’s Gospel, I felt guilty. A widow, Anna “did not depart from the temple, but served God with 
fastings and prayers night and day.” I’m also a widow but have never spent a whole day praying, let alone fasting. Was I failing God?...

Today's Prayer
Thank you, Father, for guiding our steps so that our lives reflect your glory. 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.
