“Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. . . . Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” - 2 Kings 6:15, 17 (NIV)

I can identify with Elisha’s servant who stumbled out of bed to discover an army aligned against him. Like the servant, I have sometimes found myself surrounded by threatening circumstances — ominous medical diagnoses, financial strains, family crises. When normal life takes an adverse turn, it’s easy to feel vulnerable...

Today's Prayer
Mighty Father, give us Elisha’s eyes! Help us sense your watchful protection always surrounding us. 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.
