Today's Prayer
Creator God, help us to balance the mundane tasks of our day and those things of lasting importance. Create in us clean hearts and renewed spirits. Amen.

Thought for the Day

When I set aside a time to rest with God, I can better serve the rest of the day.

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.
