[The Lord] covers the heavens with clouds, prepares rain for the earth, makes grass grow on the hills. - Psalm 147:8 (NRSV)

I’m fascinated by the wonders of the natural world: the delicate structure of a leaf, a rainstorm with loud claps of thunder and flashes of lightning, the way thousands of ants march single file across the yard to an unknown destination. I enjoy listening to the variety of sounds made...

Today's Prayer
Thank you, God, for this amazing world you have created. Help us to recognize all the ways you are present with us. In Jesus’ name. 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.
