Teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)

In our family we have a tradition of reading Psalm 90 on the night of December 31, as we pass into the New Year. I enjoy this opportunity to reflect on the mystery of the passing of time and of my passing with it, on the transience of human life....

Today's Prayer
God of all our years, thank you for giving us blessings every day and opportunities to follow you. 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.
