The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. - James 5:16 (NIV)
In February 2016 I was sentenced to jail, a new and unexpected experience for me, after having served my country as a soldier and my community as a firefighter. In June 2017, I began sharing a cell with an older man who explained to me the message of the gospel....
Every day, I pray for the Lord’s will to be done.

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.”
