The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. - 1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)

I was diagnosed with myopia and astigmatism a few years ago. Fellow sufferers know how difficult it is to depend on wearing glasses; but without glasses, everything is blurred and difficult to distinguish. I can see someone in the distance and not recognize who it is, which can be frustrating...

Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, remove our blinders and help us to see people as you do, with love and compassion. 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.
