If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea. - Isaiah 48:18 (NIV)

My family and I live close to the Gulf of Mexico. I love to walk along the beautiful beaches of white sands and emerald green water. When I see and hear the waves of the ocean crashing on the sand, I feel incredible peace and joy at being so close...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, teach us what is best for us, and direct us in the way we should go. 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.
