You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. - Psalm 139:13 (NIV)
At two weeks old, my daughter, Rebecca, had open-heart surgery to repair a rare congenital defect. For the next two months, she fought for her life. Every day was a struggle. During that time, I learned to rely on God for both my strength and my daughter’s health.
Today I will ask God to be my strength.

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.”
