Do not be anxious about anything, but in every 
situation, by prayer and petition, with 
thanksgiving, present your requests to God. - Philippians 4:6 (NIV)

As Christians, we spend much time wrestling with difficult scripture, debating gray areas, and trying to find God’s direction in our lives. While all these efforts are important, sometimes we tend to miss the most obvious answer before us: prayer. How often do we look at our world, grieve internally...

Today's Prayer
Almighty God, may we never forget that prayer brings us close to you and that you are the source of our strength and peace. Amen.

Our world


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.”
