I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. - Psalm 9:1 (NRSV)

Once again I couldn’t sleep. Unresolved fear and anxiety became magnified by the dark quiet. Praying only made me focus on my troubles even more and question if God really cared.

I snuggled under the covers, shut my eyes, and began remembering the good things that had happened that day....

Today's Prayer
Dear God, may your love drive out our worries and give us peaceful sleep. Amen.

I have been in the military for over 18 years, working in Religious Affairs. The Upper Room has always been a crucial resource for our military members. It serves as a beacon of hope, a way to connect daily to God and a reminder of how we should act as Christians.”
