Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1 (NRSV)

I’m not a huge fan of running because I’m not very good at it. Every time I get on the treadmill, I think to myself, I just need to build up my endurance. Eventually I’ll run a mile in under ten minutes.
The Bible speaks a lot about endurance. Paul...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, help us to set our sights on the prize of eternal life through Christ Jesus so that we may endure and even overcome our struggles. 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.
