Jesus said to [Thomas], “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6 (NRSV)

In the last few years, I have done a lot of traveling. I often don’t give a second thought to exploring a new place without a proper guide. As a result, I am frequently uncertain if I have the correct address or if the directions I’ve been given are complete....

Today's Prayer
Merciful God, continue to guide us on the path that leads to eternal life. In the name of Jesus who taught us to pray, saying, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matt. 6:9-13, NIV). Amen.

Weary travelers


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.”
