Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 (NRSV)
We were miles from the nearest town. With the low-fuel warning light on in my car and two mountains to cross, I prayed, “Our cell phones don’t work out here, and we’re two young women who don’t want to walk these roads in the dark. Please help us arrive safely.”...
Through prayer God takes my worry and offers me peace.

...devoid of our regular routine and filled instead with uncertainty and a hum of anxiety, my husband and I have found the practice of joining The Upper Room via Facebook to pray, listen, and learn in community, including my sister in Houston. This is a much-needed healing balm." Join us on Facebook Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:00 AM CT.
