This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. - 1 John 5:14 (NIV)
Last year our church welcomed a new pastor. I was immediately struck by her approach to the morning prayer. She started by saying, “Good morning, Lord.” Then she continued her conversation with God.
Her way of praying made me think about prayer in general and how we as Christians communicate...
Today I will try praying in a new way.

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.”
