[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.

Decades of Faithfulness

Pastor Harold Stinson was given The Upper Room as a child by his mother. He is now 71 years old and still reads the devotional guide every day but now in large print. He also hosts a daily prayer call and uses the scripture from the meditation as the basis for that call. 

Share the gift of faith by giving to the youth and young adult ministries of The Upper Room.
