Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. - Psalm 119:105 (NIV)

When I was a child in Brazil, it was not easy to afford a Bible, especially for my parents. My first Bible was a Christmas gift from my uncle José. He had already marked it up as he read from that Bible over the years. I can still see it...

Today's Prayer
Our God and Father, work in us to will and to act in order to fulfill your good purposes. In Jesus’ name we pray. 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.
