The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. - Psalm 145:18 (NRSV)
When I was younger, prayer seemed like a chore to check off my to-do list. I would schedule time to pray and say the words I thought I should. Often I would simply ask for things I wanted, and if I didn’t get them I would complain to God.
I can experience God’s love through prayer.

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.”
