The father said to his servants, “This son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” So they began to celebrate. - Luke 15:24 (NIV)
Recently, our house cat, Charlie, managed to sneak outside and disappear. For two weeks our family searched the neighborhood, prayed, and even passed out fliers with her picture; but sadly we couldn’t find her. As hope began to fade, God answered our prayers and Charlie returned home safe and sound....
I can always turn to God for safety and direction.

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.”
