wanting to chat, or someone’s email seeking last-minute volunteers. When I’m focused on crossing items off my list, these

Today's Prayer
Help us respond to your call to serve, Lord, and remind us that interruptions can bring us closer to you. Give us faith to trust in your plans and provision. Amen.

Thought for the Day

What is God inviting me to leave undone today?

Prayer Focus

Those overwhelmed 
 with responsibilities


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.”
