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)
When I returned home from the market with my groceries, my three-year-old son, Alan, spotted the biscuits. He exclaimed loudly, “Papa, biscuits!” Then suddenly he began to cry as he kept asking for them. Alan’s behavior made me a little sad. I thought, Why doesn’t he ask with a smile?...
I will approach God today with trust and thanksgiving.

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.”
