The psalmist wrote, “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.” - Psalm 103:1 (NIV)
I used to look forward to birthdays. My 16th birthday was a milestone I greatly anticipated. I was not just excited about getting my driver’s license and being able to drive. I was excited about growing up.
As I got older, birthdays lost their luster. I did not look forward...
Birthdays can remind me of God’s faithfulness.

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.”
