Jesus prayed, “My prayer is not for [those you gave me] alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message.” - John 17:20 (NIV)
At our wedding reception, a friend of my grandparents who had known me my whole life hugged me. She told me how proud my mother would have been of me. I appreciated that connection to the past — especially since my mother and grandparents were no longer living.
Today I will tell someone that I am praying for them.

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.”
