Samuel took a stone . . . and named it Ebenezer; for he said, “Thus far the Lord has helped us." - 1 Samuel 7:12 (NRSV)
When I first sang the words, “Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I’m come,”* I had no idea what Ebenezer meant. Then I read today’s scripture and learned that Ebenezer refers to a stone memorial that Samuel built to remind the people how much God had helped...
What can I use as a reminder 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.”
