Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you. - Ephesians 4:32 (NRSV)

Today's Prayer
Father God, help us to see the confusion, hurt, or anger of others and to offer love where there is insult. 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.
